Wishing Well, Hayes, London   Leave a comment

Directly across from the Angel sits the Wishing Well, another idiosyncratic — and surprisingly good, for the neighbourhood — bar, and yet another of the Irish bars in London.  Similarly surprising, they had TWO real ales on and my choice, Hobgoblin, was damn near as perfect a pint as I have ever had (and I have had a couple or more in the past).  Granted, Hobgoblin is pretty bomb proof but some cellar masters still fuck it up; here, it was a pure delight.

I would have stayed for a second one since I didn’t really have any plans to turn the evening run into a pub crawl; that is, until I got challenged by Michelle, the proprietor, whilst taking a photo of the spectacular windows and ceiling.  She seemed satisfied with my one word explanation, “tourist,” but the spell had been broken and I no longer felt welcome.

So: a good pint awaits you but leave your interest in the architecture at home.
