Beer'n'bike? A pub to Trust

Yesterday's Tiredoflondontiredoflife blog, which suggests interesting places to visit in the capital, picks out the George Inn in Southwark.

I'm quite a fan of the George (right). Partly because it's London's only half-example of a medieval galleried inn, with some bits unchanged for hundreds of years.

But also because it's bike friendly. It's a perfect summer evening bike'n'beer destination, as I recorded last July.

Outside London there are better examples of preserved old coaching inns. The New Inn in central Gloucester for instance (right), hiding behind chain-store shop windows in the main shopping street, is more complete.

Not as enthusiastic with the bike parking, though. And the Wetherspoon's round the corner has free wifi.
