General Discussion / Re: BREWERIES - GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN

The  Brick Lane brewery was Trumans, not Watneys, though at the time both brands were owned by Grand Metropolitan.

The last Watneys brewery was in Mortlake and only closed in 2015, though it had spent the last couple of decades as the home of Budweiser.

Ah yes, that reminds me, I need to add some more pubs to the map and edit a couple of others.

Not enough!  We are going down to London in a couple of weeks so I'm hoping we can go to some we haven't been to yet.  All uk holidays are though out around them.

If you've not been to the Fitzroy Tavern and the Duke of Argyll in 18 months, then you might want to visit these again, as they have been refurbished to a VERY HIGH standard.

It is an interesting pub,not been for quite a few years now. How many SS pubs have you ticked off your list?

Visiting Bristol we thought we would call into the King William Ale House.  Itís a 10 minute walk from M Shed/SS Great Britain.  Had a great couple of drinks in the usual SS surroundings.  Lots of other pubs around it.  Met some great German tourists who were enjoying the drinks.  Staff were very pleasant.  Usual southern prices extra £1 for lager and 50p for soft drinks.  Another one striked off our list!
