Look, all this teasing isn't fair. You are dangling a virtual bar of chocolate in front of me, then snatching it away when the dribbling starts! I've obviously led a sheltered life. I don't know where this pub is, and now I think I'd be too frightened to go there anyway :roll:

Maybe when eventually I manage to come back to London for a couple of days, lonelymom - we could tap into our inner Bohemian and set this dubious place alight? :shock:

I don't know if I've got an inner Bohemian. Can you explain to me what it is I need to look for? :roll:

I'll just say this on the matter.....

A few years ago, I was helping a friend out with his business, doing chauffeur/close-protection work.

One Saturday afternoon, I had to drive to the afore-mentioned premises, and collect a well-to-do. arty-crafty 'lady' and bring her back to sunny Dorking after a lunch-time 'party'.

On arrival, I was informed the party was just winding-up, and I was invited in for a soft-drink !

WELL - I reckon this lunch-time party must have started sometime around breakfast time !

Lets just say that everyone attending was VERY well known to each other. Quite an eye-opener, given the social standing and age of most present.

Mind you, chauffeuring/close-protection work does tend to open ones eyes to the upper classes's antics.

I have a standing invitation to a company do held at regular intervals. Starts at 7am in a pub, the ladies clothes are getting loosened / fewer by 10am and it usually ends with a movement by the men to another pub about 6pm. I needed several days to recover!!!!! Definitely an eye-opener and not recommended to the likes of JR - too impressionable. :wink:
