An easy Monday?

This is the Red Lion pub off of Jermyn Street in the West End. My colleague Sarah and I headed here after our last meeting of the day. We finished at 430pm, and it would take at least 30 minutes to get back to the office. As that would have been a waste of the firm's time and money, we bit the bullet and came here instead.

There are probably five thousand pubs named the Red Lion in England. This one stands out for being closest to our last meeting. Having said that, it was a worthwhile destination and we would have walked twice as far to get there. It has that 'old' pub feeling - mismatched furniture, a very old bar man and dirty glasses that make the head on your beer foam up rather impressively.

Fashion-sensible readers: Jermyn Street is THE destination in London if you need to buy shirts, especially if they are made to measure. I had my eye on a fancy black t-shirt on the wall of the pub that advertised the Westminster-to-Picadilly pub crawl. Of course, my tastes are a little more pedestrian.
