There are a lot of pubs in London, it is true. I have told you about a number of them already, you may remember. One that i haven't told you about yet is probably one of the most important. It is one I first went to when I first moved to London - and it made me feel like this was going to be the place I would settle. To give it it's full title it is Coat and Badge - but for me, I know it simply as ...

You may wonder what attracted me to this place, and why it would have such an impact on my life - well, it really isn't difficult to explain - it sells pies. Before you can mention the fact that a lot of places also sell pies, I can answer - they don't sell pies like these. To give you an idea - try there Venison and Sloe Gin variety, and you won't believe you have tried anything like it. As well as a variety of other pies on offer, there is a full pub menu, with such delights as a basket of fish, and Pulled Pork Burgers to choose from - you really will be spoilt for choice.

With all of this food on offer, it may be easy to forget that this is a pub primarily, and they have a lot of different choices here too. It is a real ale specialist, as well as previously being a gin palace - so your choice again will be tested to the limit - expect in both ways to spend longer over the menu than you were expecting too.

Now, about the name - it is slightly unusual isn't it - well, let me explain the reason for it. The name comes from the fact that Thomas Doggett, an actor who became a theatre director of around 300 years ago, created an amateur boat race on the Thames, the prize of which was a badge and coat. So now you know...
