Anyone know the area of where the Magnetic Fields gigs are this week fairly well and reccomend any pre-gig pub?
I know the area pretty well. What sort of place? There's nothing particularly fun around there...it's mostly smart pubs populated by annoying brash people.
not too pricey and the chances of getting a seat to be high.
there's a new place called The Botanist on the corner literally down the road which is quite cool but more like a bar and expensive too. There's also Oriel opposite where you can sit outside but it's more like a bar/cafe.
There's a pub called The Antelope on Eaton Square/Terrace which is alright and you should probably get a seat at.
Otherwise for an old man's pub where I'm pretty sure you'd definitely get a seat, try the Rose and Crown down Lower Sloane Street.
Otherwise you have to head up King's Road for more places and you have to go quite far before you reach other pubs.
