Bar closed on Saturday but thanks for the suggestion.

We hope to get most of the banter and nudity out of the way early, had previous stag do's get out of hand and this groom isn't keen on that sort of stuff. More concerned about it being reasonable pub prices rather than cocktails/bottles.

Well & Bucket is good. Cracking selection of beer.

Don't go to Browns its shit and full of cunts (both sorts), go to the axe down Hackney road it's much better for a stag

Egan, Best - thanks for the tips. Mate is saying the Nags head as he is too cheap for Browns and the mandatory £1 anyway Laughing out loud

I was in the nags once and there were about 2 strippers. Is the sports bar on shoreditch high street not supposed to be decent?

Are there any sites other than Zoopla and Rightmove to regularly check for renting in London?

Renting a four bedroom, I think Spareroom is only for renting rooms. Thanks though.

Go direct to the Estate Agents in your preferred area if possible, they will get you in as one if the first viewings.

Need to pick my sister up from Heathrow (in car) on Tuesday. I then have a meeting at 5pm in Central, and then drive up to the Midlands.

Any recommendations for somewhere I can park my car and then get the tube in?

Hammersmith or shepherds bush. Westfield has a car park. Close to motorway for Heathrow and route to m40 for midlands, on central or Piccadilly for central.

I'd park in one of the roads by Barnes station, you won't have to pay and easy access back to the motorway.

Ravenscourt Park - usually parking in the roads around the station. Cheaper than Westfield.
