I tended to drink in my local, The Artillery Arms (by Bunhill Fields cemetery)or walk up to The Old Fountain (North of Old St. and, of course, The Wenlock Arms.
I am taking my wife to the St. John mothership on our way back to LA from Eastern Europe in November. I'll have to give TORC a shot. Given my last poor experiences of St.J (I am going at her insistence) it may turn out to be the best part of the evening.

A well kept secret. Of course, there is nothing ornate about it. Which is entirely appropriate to its non-conformist residents.
My building overlooks it. I rather like that I have that and also the Honourable Artillery Company next door, so there is over 5 acres of unbuilt land in central London.
Defoe is there, so too is one of the Wesley brothers (not sure which one)
The Artillery Arms is a Fuller's pub and although a tied house,consistently wins awards for having one of the best pints of London Pride in the city. It will undoubtedly be my first stop after I return home for a few days in early November.
