The Railway Bell, New Barnet, London   Leave a comment


Pub #2064:

I ran up to the Railway Bell right on time…9:00 sharp, when the taps are freed.  “Porter, please.”

“We don’t serve alcohol until 9.”  Dammit!  I set my watch fast to cajole myself into being on time for some appointments during the workweek (now, even time itself lies to me).  I ordered a breakfast platter to wait out the remaining 7 minutes and when it arrived I wolfed down the eggs and half of everything else by the time I spotted a beer crossing the bar for someone else.

The pub looks a lot less modern outside than in.  The back half is glassed in and looks more like an airport lounge than a proper boozer, but there was a blazing fire, the beer was good, and the breakfast…fuel.
