One of my locals is fully booked on Monday and on Saturday.Ive spent a good while this week trying to book a pub near me, for after the match on Saturday, and I’d say round my way 70%+ of the pubs (and I looked at a lot because I left it so late!) are opening on Monday. Dunno if that’s different in other parts of the city.
Im heading up to the office on Monday so might see what is open in the Blackfriars area. I guess the Blackfriar, the Doggets and the Founders arms have decent outside space if it is worth them opening up.
