    Default London ..

    Hi all,

    I will be down Wembley for the semi final in April ( 5 long years since my last trip there !)

    Unfortunately we are the Sunday match but I am still planning to hit a handful of pubs before / after the match.

    We land at Marylebone fairly early ( by 10.30 if all goes to plan ) so hit me with some suggestions !

    They don't have to be the greatest real ale pubs in the world - anything interesting will do. As you know to me a pub is a pub !!

    Cheers,

    Del.

    I really enjoyed the Barley Mow, before and after our defeat to Wigan. The ELB Jamboree was superb.
    The wooden alcoves are something of intrigue; sorry it didn't float the boat of its most recent, and respected, reviewer.
    Next trip there, vs Sunderland, it was closed - may be worth checking in advance...

    ps. Look for the overland trains from Marylebone, ~12mins direct, especially good if allocated West side of stadium, though it beats the tube either way...

    Agree with Barley Mow. Pontefract Castle is a decent shout too - a Nicholsons, so you know what you're going to get.

    The Carpenters Arms is a nice place, though a little small so it depends how many of you there are trying to squeeze in.

    Pontefract has closed. More flats imminent...

    I will probably give the Barley Mow a go. The pubs close to Baker street / Marylebone will no doubt be heaving. Last time i went you couldn't get near the Globe.

    We will probably nip off on the tube for a couple of hours as soon as we arrive.

    We have got the West side of Wembley but I doubt i will bother trying to get a pint anywhere near there !
