The Cock and Lion, London   Leave a comment

Jackie needed a black polo shirt for a Christmas retail gig and it is a hard find, here. After the last talks at Socialism 2013, we engaged the capitalist beast at its most foul — Oxford Street, London — and finally scored her prisoner’s outfit at a cost of some pounds sterling and several years off our lives. We needed a drink and our side-street escape route plopped us dead centre of the Cock and Lion.

Jacks said she’d buy the round for me being so good and not causing a fight amidst the cattle but once we ordered she handed me a fiver, all she had on her…what a laugh. I took it and added a ten from which I salvaged a few coins and we took the highly overpriced swill to a snug at the end of the bar.

It IS a fantastic house and DOES have decent wine prices. I wouldn’t venture too far out of my way for it, though; and, bring a decent line of credit.
