Back East

Saturday. A rare free day in London, with Mrs and Little Wheels away in Devon. On my way to the Commando Comics exhibition I gave TapEast another go. You may recall that my previous visit just after the Westfield brewpub-to-be opened was pretty mediocre. I’m happy to put that down to teething problems, because the Oakham Citra they served me this time was bang on – absolutely in the peak of condition. I wasn’t keen on the barman wiping the froth off the glass with his fingers after he poured it, but i’ll let that slide. Their new brewkit is shining shinily in a glassed-off back room. First beers will be available on the 4th of November (although Meerforbeer thinks it’s the 9th – hopefully one of us is correct).

In other news – here’s the Euston Tap as it appears in the National Railway Museum‘s model of Euston Station, in need of a update with a portaloo and Bernard-branded umbrellas.

  1. That’s ace. I wonder If i’m one of the people outside…. Depends when the model-maker took the picture!

    Glyn will read this and then run a “where not to put your fingers” staff-training session, I suspect.

    “Euston Road” — Microgramma? (Sorry.)

  3. I felt a bit churlish mentioning the fingers, but it’s not desirable is it? Very impressed otherwise.
