> Thanks to everyone who came to the last social, we had a great  
> turnout (how much was down to the location, the call for newbies to  
> come out of the woodwork or the free beer, who can say?).
> Lets try somewhere new, somewhere I've enjoyed a good few pints of  
> delicious beer. In sunny clerkenwell.[1]

> We have the back room from 6pm.
> This is a traditional real ale pub with excellent beer. Word is that  
> the landlord recently removed the lager taps, so lager is now of the  
> bottled variety only.[2]
> Every time I've been I've enjoyed my beer and there's been a real  
> cider on. There are bottles of gaymers or something else if you  
> prefer the taste of chemicals.[3]
> There's an extensive menu of pub food cooked by a french chef. I've  
> eaten here, it's quite nice.
> I seem to recall the scotch selection was somewhat lacking but then  
> I'm a scotch snob and perhaps others find it adequate.
> Tube links:
> Farringdon is nearest, on the everything-else line[4], one stop out  
> of kings cross
> Chancery lane is only a few minutes away too, on the central line.
> Russell square on the piccadilly is probably stretching it, change  
> at holborn and go to chancery lane.
> Experimentally, I'm not bothering to look up buses because it's  
> loads of effort. If you resent this, let me know so I fix it next  
> time.[5]
> Hope to see you there.

> [3] Mmmm mmm mmm... tasty e-numbers.
> [4] In this case of everything-else, metropolitan, hammersmith and

> [5] Patches welcome. Tell me how to find buses without engaging lots
