Since I got good feedback from various Perlmongers who were there - I was sadly
ill and couldn't attend - we are going to return to the Kings Arms. It is a
quiet traditional pub tucked away in a side alley just off Borough High Street,
which perhaps explains why it remains free from the milling hordes which plague
the other pubs round Borough Market. It's between London Bridge and Borough
stations. (450m and 300m away respectively.)

But what could be better than a decent pint in a good pub? That's right, free
drinks! Christine Wong of Square One Resources is once again generously
sponsoring our bar tab. As before, please don't forget to introduce yourself
and thank her.

Note that despite the standard blurb below, this pub does not serve food in the
evening beyond the usual bar snacks. If arriving early, you could pick up
something from Borough Market. Alternatively there are a few eateries in the
area you could go to before or after the social.

(The) Kings Arms
65 Newcomen Street


Standard blurb:

Social meets are a chance for the various members of the group to meet up face
to face and chat with each other about things - both Perl and (mostly) non-Perl
- and newcomers are more than welcome. The monthly meets tend to be bigger than
the other ad hoc meetings that take place at other times, and we make sure that
they're in easy to get to locations and the pub serves food (meaning that
people can eat in the bar if they want to). They normally start around 6.30pm
(or whenever people get there after work) and a group tends to be left come
closing time.

If you're a newcomer or other first timer (even if you've been lurking on the
mailing list or on IRC) then please seek our Glorious Leader Tom out - we have
a tradition that the leader of this motley crew buys the new people a drink and
introduces them to people.
