This pub social worked well in July with a very pleasant summer evening and view across the river, and September's was even bigger (though we were downstairs as upstairs was booked out). The venue has loads of space on 5 floors so be ready to go upstairs to find us, where I'll prefer to be if we can (often floor 2/3 are closed but keep going up if you haven't spotted us). Alternatively we'll be inside somewhere lower down. Its right by Blackfriar's bridge (on the South side of the river, West side of the road ie. North-bound side heading across the bridge) and some areas inside have views across the river.
Its a free event, just like all our others. So come along and look out for a meetup logo nearby (on a table probably, so you might need to walk round the people) and me (6' slim frame and long hair, even longer than my pic) if you've not been before - and take my phone number or risk wasting your trip and not finding us (or asking lots of folk if they're the meetup group - but I'm pretty recognisable from my photo here)! 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 it can get quite busy, especially in nice weather.
Doggett's is well served by public transport:
The bus stop for Blackfriars Station South(stop 'C') is right outside, and its easy to get to from Blackfriars(if you exit at the south end!)/Southwark/Waterloo stations.
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).
