The pub problem

If there is going to be a South East London Tweetup (despite the supposed ban on adding the letters TW to the beginnings of words that shouldn’t have them), then it is going to be in a pub in Blackheath. Great! Easy for buglers, but seems to have left the organiser @troublebrother with a problem. All of the pubs in Blackheath have something missing… As he says:

  1. The railway, has a cider festival at the moment, for drinkers this may to place. However ifs its a nice evening not much space out side
  2. O’Neils . No
  3. Hare & Billet Lovely wood floors but can’t go outside. Not much space in side if Tweetup goes massive
  4. The Crown. Has a terrace, which can get busy in the evening.
  5. The Princess of Wales. Trumps the Crown in terrace stakes, as it potentially has whole heath. Also has shrine to Blackheath Rugby – my troubled mistress.

Personally I’d go for the Hare and Billet every time if the beer was a bit better. You can lurk outside on the heath (they will give you plastics though). It’s quieter and isn’t constantly heaving with people… Unless you really want to go to the secret weapon – The Dacre Arms! Although technically I think it’s just outside Blackheath. I agree with his O’Neil’s argument too.
