The Punch Tavern on Fleet Street in London

For the first time ever, we decided not to stay in a hotel, but a rental apartment while in London. We chose a good location on Fleet Street to make it walking distance to LSE for our travel purpose.

The frame above the door features the character Punch. Too bad I had just seen one like it, but with a white mask! There he was in broad daylight in a car near Fleet Street… He reminded me of one of the murder cases in the detective show Elementary which we like to watch.

The Punch Tavern features 70 different types of Gin. I tried the London Dry, Beefeater, and Bombay Sapphire. I’ve done my share. It took me two nights to down three of them.

This was their vegetarian version of the Caesar Salad. My husband enjoyed his Shepherd’s Pie.

I opted for the Punch Baby breakfast, which was enough. At least, I got the beans and sausage with it.

The rental place above the Punch Tavern is in a good location. It was clean and comfortable. There are four windows in the apartment, but they only point to grey walls of more holes in the wall. But we weren’t there for the view anyway. I would stay there again.

While there, we also realized why we had to leave a GBP 500 safety deposit. Now we know, but this will be our secret. 🙂 The deposit was returned to us in full right away. We had been good.
