Ahhh, the English Pub. Generally speaking, an oasis away from the hustle and bustle of the real world. Little to no music, maybe a bit of rugby or football (soccer) on tv, but otherwise, a wonderful place. This is why I came to London, to search out the best. So, this is a simple post, pubs, some pub food, and some more pubs. Good times were had by all! In addition, I actually heard the words “bah humbug” at some point on this trip, though the circumstances escape me…

So, here’s a collection of pictures. Play along and pretend you’re in London by drinking a pint for every picture! (Legal disclaimer: Don’t actually do that)

Technically a resturant, not a Pub. But a really awesome resturant offering a English take on American southern food.

I know I missed a few pictures of pubs (especially as the nights wore on…), so to those pubs, I’ll drink a pint of good beer* in your honor.
