Drink at the King Charles I

In an age when all the good pubs seem to be closing, it's a blessing when you stumble into an unexpectedly brilliant place for a beer, and so it was that yesterday evening your author wandered into the King Charles I, an outwardly unremarkable pub on Northdown Street, off Caledonian Road, and found a lovely place full of smiling Londoners within.

Previously, your author was only aware of the pub from having eaten lunch at the decent Blue River Cafe on the opposite side of the street, and watched it from afar but on yesterdays visit the door opened to reveal a wood-panelled interior, a gas fire flickering in the fireplace and three ales available from the cash-only bar. A return visit is on the cards very soon.

  1. Hurrah, it's a very nice pub, isn't it? It's been so long since I've been, I really must rectify that...

    1. It really is. I can't believe I have never been before. Thanks also for making this, and countless other photos, available for use under Creative Commons. I definitely owe you a pint sometime soon.
