London photo: the Cock Tavern

Lots of nice beer and lovely meat, apparently. (Somewhere in East London. Not sure where — I spotted this from a bus.)

    Hackney? This pub seems as though it might be the same place.

  • Looks like it. It was on the bus between my house and the ExCeL, which parts of Hackney are.

    God, I’m 12 years old. I immediately started tee-heeing when I saw this!

    I’m going to Ireland in a few weeks (yayayyay!!!), and I am soooo looking forward to experiencing some pubs in the nearly 3 weeks we’ll be there. I don’t go to bars over here in the States (not my usual scene), and I don’t drink when I’m out just because I’m always driving, but for the first two weeks in Ireland, I’ll either be in Dublin (no car) or just a passenger in the car while my sibs drive the big honking VW mini-bus (I don’t drive manual transmission, so they’re taking care of that with the behemoth–more power to them), so I can indulge in Guinness, Smithwicks, Jameson, and Bushmills to my hearts content. Actually, as I’ve gotten older, my “heart’s content” is usually just one or two glasses per night…

  • Sounds wonderful. Have fun!

    Do they serve Spotted Dick?

    Just asking, because the last place he went to they refused him service.
