Pub-Hopping with Grandpa

The Barley Mow Before Grandma and Grandpa left London, we vowed not to leave any of the neighborhood pubs unexplored. Over the course of one evening, Rich and Grandpa visited four pubs. Grandma was with us at the first, then we dropped her off at home before heading to the Barley Mow, the Marylebone district's oldest pub.

The William Wallace The next stop was at the William Wallace, with "generous Scottish measures of spirits" and--improbably--a full menu of Thai cuisine.

The Globe The final stop of the evening was the Globe, where we stayed until "last orders," the equivalent of last call. Final drinks are served by 11:00 p.m., then clients have until about 11:15 to hit the road.

The Beehive But the pub where we spent the most time during Grandma and Grandpa's visit was a couple blocks away from our apartment, the Beehive, located on Crawford Street between Baker Street and Gloucester Place. We went often for dinner and a couple of pints in the evening. On Grandpa and Grandpa's last night in London, we stayed until last orders...and there were a few more than just a couple of pints involved.
