    A couple of my youngish neighbours (a Russian and an American as it happens) wanted to visit a few traditional pubs, so off we set to London. As one of the pubs I planned to take them to was The Nag's Head in Kinnerton St I had the foresight before we went in to ask if either of them had any cash, as I speculated that it was the sort of pub where they might not have the equipment to process a card payment. I didn't know for sure as I had obviously never tried to use a card in there. It transpired that neither of them had a penny on them, and as we couldn't find a cashpoint in Belgravia we had to find a shop where they could buy something so that they could get something called "cashback". This seemed to work to their satisfaction using something called "contactless", whereupon they discarded the bits of paper they were given, presumably trusting the bank to get it all right. They didn't strike me as the sort of people who would check their bank statements anyway. I now realise that I live in a different world to most people, but I think I'll stay in it for as long as I can.

    I've just been stung for £5.75 for a Bobby Brown minging hoppy lager after last pub in Cheltenham charged me £5 quid for the same shit. Ok the buildings are nice but there is no need to try and out price London for river water.

    Especially in Central London and I think I've only ever tried Fusilier in JDWs. Young's pubs are a joke today. I've been to the Lamb loads of time in the past but wouldn't go near it now or any other of their outlets.
