Sunday drinks at The Grenadier

One of my favourite historic pubs, the gorgeous Grenadier.

This lovely little pub hidden down a cobbled alleyway in plush Belgravia, has a rich (and slightly gruesome) history. Back in the 1700s it was a offices mess for the Grenadier Guards, soldiers of the the Iron Duke himself - Wellington (who lived nearby at Apsley House). Legend has it that one of these guards was murdered by his colleagues here after cheating at a game of cards.

Inside the pub is small and cute, and crammed with military memorabilia, including money (from all over the globe) pinned to the ceiling to pay the poor murdered soldier's debt.

We will be having Sunday Afternoon drinks here, and food for those that would like it.

Please note this pub is notoriously difficult to find, so please check a map before heading there. The nearest station is Hyde Park Corner.

    Celeste, thank you for your tip about 'on the go' charger for my iphone. I bought one from Maplins yesterday- the smaller one that last up to 13hrs- looks like a large lipstick, perfect for me :-)

    Looking forward to seeing you all tomorrow. For those of you who have not been there before, its very small (and can be difficult to find - so check a map). We'll be in the front bar area (look out for the meet up signs. I have booked a table for 8 ppl for those of you who want to eat, its booked from 5 (but they have another booking at 8) so if lots of you want to eat, you can take turns at the table ;)

    See you all tomorrow, my number is[masked]
