We came here for the regular monthly social back in June 2008, and if we can pull some nice weather out of hiding, it will make a good venue again as it has loads of space. Its right by Blackfriar's bridge (south side of the river) and some areas inside have views across the river.
The pub has a patio outside, so if the weather is good we can congregate out there (the Terrace bar, 2 floors up from ground) if its not booked out, and I'll be aiming for that. Otherwise we'll be inside in a bar lower down. Look out for meetup logos and me with my 6' slim frame and long hair if you've not been before - and take my phone number or risk wasting your trip and not finding us! Be ready that you might need to walk up a few floors too depending where we are, it has 5 floors though some might be booked out/too busy for us. So, note my number and we'll try to be in an area with cell reception!
The place is pretty big and I believe it gets quite busy, especially in nice weather.
Doggett's is well served by public transport:
Waterloo Station is a 10 minute walk away, Blackfriars and Southwark stations are minutes away. London bus routes 45, 63,100 & RV1 run to and from stops within yards of the pub (its on the west side of the road, ie. same side as north-bound traffic heading over the river).
