    Default Walthamstow Mini Crawl

    Gann mentioned last time we met, that Walthamstow was worth a visit. I am in London for a couple of days in Feb, so am planning on going to Walthamstow on Mon 15th. BF has already confirmed meeting up with me, so if anyone else fancies it, you're more than welcome.

    I doubt if I'll be able to make it. Check the opening times. Wild Card won't be open at all, the new Mirth (and any other Antic pub apart from the Red Lion in E11) is 16:00, the Chequers in the Market is 17:00. The Rose & Crown and Bell are both 12:00. A couple of years ago I tried to visit the Nag's Head on a Friday afternoon at around 14:00 and it was shut! CAMRA still say it's 12:00. I haven't been to the Drum for a few years but have been told it's sliding into the abyss. The William IV in Leyton is still 11:00 as far as I know but it's dead at that time of day.

    Don't think I'll be able to get the day off work, so unlikely for me,I assume you will be in Hull Ray ,so see you there.

    Thanks for this info Aqualung, some good pubs to visit by the looks of things. Catch you again at some point.

    If you are going with Nev aka Bucking Fastard,
    you will have a good guide to Walthamstow,i did all but two pubs in the E17 area and Nev did most with me
    we did'nt cherry pick but did any pub that was open,still mad about missing out on the two remaining pubs to the North of Walthamstow.
    We are all equal,but some are more equal than others

    Don't forget the CAMRA 10% discount in the Bell. As it's local for me it's about the only place where I always remember it.

    I agree, the only three I visit and not that often are Wild Card, Rose & Crown and the Bell plus the WFSC Club for beer festivals or voting but the council want to shut that down to build unaffordable housing!

    No not at all,they were not on my list to do as i wanted to those two crap pubs named after shoes but we did'nt really look for them properly,so when i ran short of pubs i had already walked south to get closer to the tube station.
