Quieter, City pub social next to the Thames

  • Sep 18, 2013 · 7:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

This pub social worked well in July with a very pleasant summer evening and view across the river. 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.

So look out for a meetup logo and me with my 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.

Getting there

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).

      Er... I don't quite see how its so relevant to mention something in RoI and that you don't say is more particularly bi related either, and not so family-friendly on our London-based social group..

    I'm on the ground floor at the large table by the front window nearest the door that leads to the river.

      Thanks for the note for the others, I couldn't update the site to say so (phone issues)

      There'll be a few of the group going (you were talking about 'P' right), but its not an official group outing. My wife and myself and a couple of our other friends are coming too. Its fairly important that you Do read the dress-code though and other info (on their site)

    If you're there early, grab a table - top floor preferably, and either post here or look out for someone like Me/Jon/Jessica/"Fudge".

      Hmm, top floor is shut, 2nd floor is reserved for a private function, 1st floor is reserved for dining, so I guess it's ground floor!

    The pub is on several floors & there's a lift, as well as the stairs. Think the side entrance is step-free, but not sure.

    Sorry for clashing again with 3rd Wednesday for some folks. I can't do it the week before so unless someone else wants to run it that week, or you're all ok with Thursday (maybe still too close to the 3rd Wednesday of the month?)... I might be able to do it next month on a different day

      Wednesday, this month at least.
