In one of the underground advertisements, we saw an event named Istanbul Inn London which will take place at the Victoria House in Holborn between 12-15 April 2013. And as two Turks who live in London, today we went to visit this Art&Design  event. Result: Disaster? Dissapointment? Both?

Except few pieces, it was a really poor exhibition and it was hard to understand which part of this event brings Istanbul to London. It was exactly like the degree show of  a university.

After there, we tried our chance to visit Pompei exhibition in British Museum but all tickets were sold out until the end of May and they said that they release only limited tickets daily. Only chance to visit today was at 19.00 o’clock and we gave up visiting the exhibition and walked to Sicilian Avenue to try a new pub we saw several times when we were passing from there.

Holborn Whippet is a new, modern pub which provide craft beers and food. We tried their steak sandwich and Bloomsbury burger. Except the cold chips, the food was good. König Pilsner which we tried also was tasty. We loved their beer taps.

But nobody cared about the amount of empty dishes and glasses at the tables during half an hour. This wasn’t pleasant. The other thing,  first response to our mustard petition, was a quick “Sorry, we don’t have”. When we remind they serve burger and chips and asked again, two minutes later, the mustard was at the table. Why to say “no” first time? Mystery… But generally worth to go and try their beer and food.

Today while we were walking in Knightsbridge we stopped in one of the cozy, old pubs of London, in Paxtons Head for a pint. Outside there was a cold and very grey day but after stepped inside once, we were in a early christmassy coziness.

Christmas craziness already began in our little kingdom early november and in this lovely pub it was the same.We settled in the comfortable chairs next to the fireplace and enjoyed the early christmas while we were drinking our Guinness.  What a lovely life!
