Yesterday evening we turned on the pub scanner. Not the type on an iPhone, but simply one based upon our collective opinions.
Would it be The Duchess, looking towards Battersea Power Station, with the Jimi Hendrix room?
Or the regular Rose and Crown on the way to Sloane Street?
Maybe the bustling Trafalgar in Kings Road?
Or that one by the red phone box near Grosvenor Bridge?
In the end we turned towards Pimlico.
To the tiny frontaged Fox and Hounds, and inside for a glug of Youngs, whilst the light evening turned to night and we talked of the barge people and unwritten adventures of Emily Jenkins.
And sure enough, as we left a real fox slid past us along Passmore Street before taking a short cut towards Holbein Mews.
