    Great to meet Komakino in the Cross Keys, Covent Garden this evening. A chance conversation at the bar where Pubs Galore was mentioned and that was it!

    Would love to know how the conversation went, before you had that 'light bulb' moment.

    Surprised you could find one another given the lighting in there.

    That's so romantic - clearly love won't tear you apart.

    I've always hankered after a Joe Dolce thong, but she never got the hint...

    Crikey, I thought it was a weird conjunction between Tris39, Michael Palin and Boak&Bailey for a moment, however it's a different The Drapers Arms; maybe Cider Drinker and DaveM could be involved if such a thing ever happened.

    We may find the bravest men?

    Cheating a bit as I wasn't in a pub, rather standing next to me at the check-out queue at the Oxford Street branch of M & S: Kenneth Cranham (likes his cardies does our Ken).
