VT member HORSCHECK was visiting London from Germany, so a small meeting was arranged in his honour. The meeting started at a gastro pub called The King's Arms where we had lunch. The pub is located about a 10 minute walk from London Bridge, quite close to Tower Bridge.

The King's Arms is a great looking place. The interior looks very comfortable with a mix of old leather sofas and mix-matched tables and chairs. A great place for lunch on a winters day. Service was a bit slow, they appeared to be short staffed, though we weren't in that much of a hurry so it didn't matter.

Our VT group sat at a table along the left-hand wall. The seats were great....until the rugby came on and suddenly the game was blasted out from a speaker pointing right at our table! Oh well, the game only went for an hour or so.

Favorite Dish: The food was really tasty - everyone seemed to enjoy their meals. I had the Roast Duck Breast with roast sweet potato, beans and red wine jus - it was delicious! Others had the Mushroom Risotto, the Venison Steak and the Sausages & Mash.

We were a little disappointed that the desserts on the menu were not available....I was really craving that Chocolate pudding....oh well, had to have another drink instead ; )
