The Rising Sun, Bloomsbury, London   Leave a comment

Our main reason for travel to London was to see a taping of Radio Four’s News Quiz which was taking place at the theatre of the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts, but we arrived with a half hour to kill before the doors to the RADA bar were going to open (and an hour-and-a-half before taping would commence) so we explored the neighbourhood in search of a watering hole.  There were probably better prices at the collegiate bar around the corner but the Rising Sun really looked like a good pub.

True, it was pleasant enough and we scored a good seat with an open window looking out on Tottenham Court Road, but the prices were excessive and the cider I had which should have been clear came out cloudy and with debris from the pipes — a scrumpy despite the fact that it wasn’t.  There are definitely better choices in the area.
