    I will be in London Sept 7th-15th and was thinking we could potentially organize a session. I am staying in near Pimlico and hear nothing but rave reviews about Cask. That could be a potential spot unless others have suggestions. outside Cask where would a few other good local spots be for me for night caps? Im staying at the DoubleTree Hilton on John Islap St. In addition any neighborhood gems as far as food that are cant misses? I am also an avid Michigan fan and alum. Any chance at all to find the game on somewhere on the 8th? I think it would be a 930pm start. Thanks for the help to everyone in advance. I hope we can organize a get together.

    I'm betting there's not much chance of finding a Michigan football game on in London. Might be wrong though.

    Cask is nice and always worth a visit though some gripe about prices...there's a Young's pub morpeth arms near there too...i caught a college game on by accident in a pub in queensway! .re food. Check out timeout London online for good reviews and ideas...looking on the map where you're staying is an area I don't know that well... Sorry

    I'd be down to meet up at Cask while you're in town. It's one of the best pubs in London for craft beer and I work pretty close by.

    For Michigan football, you might be able to catch the game at Sports Bar and Grill in Victoria station. It shows a lot of Big 10 games. I was there on a Saturday last fall and Penn State, Ohio State, Wisconsin, and a couple other Big 10 teams were on.
