The Angel in the Fields. This is a Sam Smiths pub, so the beer is cheap. We should have upstairs. Note that the toilets are pretty small and changing in the pub is awkward, so please arrive ready to run.
The pub is between Baker St. and Bond St. stations. There are two Livingstone Cycle racks nearby on George St. and Hinde St., and there are public bikes racks opposite the Waitrose (2) on Marylebone High St. and another at the south end of Marylebone Lane (3). Failing that you could try chaining them to the fence in Manchester Square Gardens or a near by lamppost. There is onstreet parking in the area but it is expensive and operates on a pay by phone system.
£1 for SLOW members, students and juniors, £2 for others.
|Registration||Between 1815 and 1930|
|Start Times||Between 1815 and 1930|
