Pub crawls 2012-2013
CUTwC runs a series of pub crawls throughout the first two terms
of the academic year, intending to visit every public house in Cambridge
during that time. This is an excellent way to learn you way around Cambridge,
so long as you don't mind asking "what pub's it near?" when being given
See also the 2010-2011 crawl.
Starting in the Brook at 7:00pm.
7 pubs visited (total very hard to say) - attendees: Harley Jones (in body if not spirit), Ed Green, Stew Sage, Rupert Thompson, Andrew Garrard
Note: The order was adjusted to finish nearer to a source of curry: Brook, Empress, Earl of Beac, Bells, Live, Salisbury, Devonshire.
- The Brook is on the corner of Perne Road and Brookfields (the far end of Mill Road).
- Turn left (west) out of the Brook and continue onto Mill Road, crossing the road. Take a right into Thoday Street. Continue to the junction with St Philips Road. The Empress is on the far right side of the crossroads.
- Turn right out of the Empress exit, west onto St Phillips Street. Catherine Street is the next street along; The Jubilee is on the far right side of the crossroads.
- Turn right out of the Jubilee, south down Catherine Street. At the crossroads with Mill Road, turn right, past the shops. The Earl of Beaconsfield is on the right just before Great Eastern Street, just before the bridge over the railway.
- Turn right out of the Earl of Beaconsfield and cross the railway bridge. Cross Mill Road into Devonshire Road. The Deconshire Arms is on the right.
- Leaving the Devonshire Arms, turn left and return to Mill Road. Turn left (northwest) towards town on Mill Road. Take the second left onto Tenison Road. The Salisbury Arms is on the right, just after Wilkin Street.
- Turn left out of the Salisbury, Northwest along Wilkin Street, turn right (Northeast) along Mawson Road, then take the second left onto Mill Street. The Six Bells is on the left at the end.
- Turn left out of the Six Bells, continuing southwest down Covent Garden. Take a left at Cross Street, cross Glisson Road, then the Live and Let Live is on the right, at the junction with Mawson Road.
- To get back to the centre of town, turn left out of the Live and Let Live onto Mawson Road, continuing northeast to Mill Road. Turn left (northwest) to get to the junction with Gonville Place. Cross the road, cross Parker's Piece diagonally (past the Reality Checkpoint), and turn right up St Andrew's Street towards the centre of town. The obvious curry is the Kohinoor, which can be reached by turning right out at the Mill Road/Mawson Road junction rather than left; it's on the right near the junction.
Starting in the Pantron Arms at 7pm.
9 pubs to visit, depending on how many of these pubs are still open:
- The Panton Arms is off Panton Street next to Coronation Street. Panton Street runs down to Lensfield Road.
- Turn left out of the Panton Arms, then left down Russel Court. The Alma is on the right.
- Turn right out of the Alma, follow Russell Street to the right, left and right, then turn left onto Norwich Street. Continue to Hill's Road, then turn right. Continue south on Hills Road past Station Road, Brooklands Avenue and over the railway bridge, then turn left onto Cherry Hinton Road. The Rock is some way down on the right, just after Blinco Grove. Alternatively, consider a taxi. If the Osborne Arms is closed during the Hills Road crawl, this is the obvious opportunity to pick it up.
- Turn right out of the Rock, and continue east along Cherry Hinton Road, crossing the roundabout with the ring road by Budgens. Turn right onto Wulfstan Way and follow the road south. Shortly before the junction with Queen Edith's Way, the Queen Edith is set back from the road on the left.
- Turn left out of the Queen Edith and walk to the T-junction with Queen Edith's Way. Then turn left (east) and continue to the crossroads with Cherry Hinton Road and Fulbourn Road. The Robin Hood is on the far right corner.
- Turn right out of the Robin Hood, up Cherry Hinton High Street. The Unicorn is on the left just after the mini-roundabout with Mill End Road.
- Turn right out of the Unicorn and right at the mini-roundabout down Mill End Road. The Red Lion is on the right.
- Turn left out of the Red Lion, then left again onto the High Street (northeast). Continue along the High Street; the Five Bells is just after Railway Street on the left, eventually.
- Turn left out of the Five Bells and continue northeast up the High Street. Take the second left onto Coldham's Lane. The Rosemary Branch is some way down, on the right, by Rosemary Lane.
- To get back to town, turn right out of the Rosemary Branch, northwest along Coldham's Lane. Turn left (eventually) at the roundabout by Sainsbury's, then right at Brookfields. Continue along the whole length of Mill Road (locals may advise using the cycle bridge if you want to cut a corner and miss curry), cross Parker's Piece diagonally and turn right onto St Andrew's Street. After the railway bridge on Mill Road, the Curry Queen and Kohinoor are on the left. This is a long walk and you may wish to consider a taxi.
Apparently the Hill Road Crawl has been run. Details will be forthcoming.
Writing this in 2021... apparently not.
Note: this crawl was mis-announced as being on Saturday 16th. Apologies for any confusion. I appear to be unable to arrange a piss-up in a brewery.
Meeting at the Red Bull at 7:30pm.
10 (or 9) pubs to visit:
- The Red Bull is on the south side of Barton Road, between Newnham Road and Grange Road
- Turn right out of the front of the Red Bull, down Barton Road. Turn the corner left into Newnham road at the cycle crossing. Cross the roundabout with Fen Causeway, continuing northeast. The Granta is on the east (right) side of the road, just after some parking spaces beside the water.
- Unlike the route shown on the Google Map linked in the directions, turn left out of the Granta, keeping water on your left as you pass in front of buildings. Cross the pedestrian bridge over the water and follow the path northeast. When the path joins the Cam, turn left and follow the path north (with the river on your right); mind out for cow pats. Continue past the rollers and cross the river at the lock. The Mill is immediately opposite, on the corner of the road.
- Turn right out of the Mill, down Mill Lane. Turn left through the bollards onto Laundress Lane. Turn left at the end, onto Silver Street, and follow the wall of The Anchor, on your left, to the door (which faces the Silver Street bridge).
- Turn right out of the Anchor down Silver Street. Again disagreeing with the Google map, follow the wall of Queens' College on your left, down Queens' Lane between Queen's and St Catherine's. Follow Queens' Lane to the right, between King's College and St Catherine's. Turn left onto Trumpington Street towards King's Parade, then turn right onto Bene't Street. The Eagle is on the left (north) of Bene't Street.
- Turn left out of The Eagle and continue east along Bene't Street. The Bath Ale House is on the left.
- Turn left out of the Bath Ale house, east along Bene't Street. Continue to Wheeler Street, past Peas Hill on the left and the Corn Exchange on the right. The Cow is on the right, on the far side of Corn Exchange Street. The last examination of the Cow suggested that it might not be a pub (might not have real ale on tap). The Cow appears no longer to be Red.
- From the Cow, go straight ahead up Guildhall Street. Continue north along Market Square; turn left onto Market Hill and then immediately right onto Rose Crescent. Follow Rose Crescent around to Trinity Street, and turn right. Continue as Trinity Street turns into St John's Street, then turn left past St John's College onto Bridge Street. The Mitre is on the right, just before the passageway.
- The Baron of Beef is on the other side of the passageway from the Mitre, on the same side of the main part of Bridge Street. You may wish to add this pub to the Chesterton Crawl rather than including it here.
- Turn right out of the Baron of Beef, up Bridge Street. Cross the mini roundabout, the bridge, and Bridge Street. The Pickerell Inn is on the southwest side of Bridge Street, just after the bridge, opposite Magdelene College gates. This pub was included on the Victoria Road crawl, but unofficially. This is the official visit.
- To get back to the centre of town, turn right out of the Pickerel (or left out of the Mitre or Baron of Beef), south down Bridge Street. Pick Trinity Street or Sydney Street as suits you. The obvious curry opportunity is the Curry King, which can be found in the passageway (Jordans Yard) between the Mitre and the Baron of Beef.
Meeting in the Bakers at 7:30pm
8 pubs visited (one twice) (total 33) - attendees: Ed Green, Matthew Fayers (not second visit to White Swan), Rupert Thompson (not second visit to White Swan), Andrew Garrard (Cambridge Blue onwards), Patrick Driscoll (Kingston Arms onwards), Emma Driscoll (Kingston Arms only)
Time constraints actually dictated that the Kingston Arms be visited before the White Swan (which is open until 2am, and was visited a second time by some after the curry).
- The Bakers is on the northwest side of East Road (the main road heading from Parker's Piece to the Grafton Centre), between where Adam and Eve Street and Norfolk Street meet East Road, at the southwest end of the dual carriageway section (and conveniently next to KFC). It also backs onto the northeast of Adam and Eve Street, near Paradise Street.
- Leave the Bakers via the East Road exit and turn left, northeast up East Road. Cross East Road as it becomes dual carriageway, and walk down the (one way) Norfolk Street, eastwards. The Man on the Moon is on the left, on the corner of Staffordshire Street.
- Turn left out of the Man on the Moon and continue east, away from East Road, along Norfolk Street. Turn left on St Matthew's Street, then take the second right down Vicarage Terrace. The Dobblers is more or less opposite the junction of Vicarage Terrace and Sturton Street.
- Turn left out of the Dobblers, south down Sturton Street. Take the first left onto Sleaford Street. The Geldart is on the right, just before Ainsworth Street.
- Turn left out of the Geldart, returning the way you came west along Sleaford Street. Turn right (north) at the junction with Sturton Street, back towards the Dobblers. Take the first left west onto Milford Street. The Alexandra Arms is at the end on the left, by a pedestrianised junction with the top of Gwydir Street.
- Turn left out of the Alexandra Arms and head south through the pedestrian-only access to the top of Gwydir Street. The Cambridge Blue is on the right (west) of the road. If you reach Hooper Street, you've gone too far.
- Turn right out of the Cambridge Blue, south down Gwydir Street towards Mill Road. Turn left (east) when you reach Mill Road, and the White Swan is on the left, on the northwest corner of the Mill Road/Kingston Street junction, which is the next road on this side of Mill Road.
- Turn left out of the White Swan and head north along Kingston Street. The Kingston Arms is on the left (west) side, part way up.
- To get back to the centre of town, turn right out of the Kingston Arms, heading back south to Mill Road. Turn right (northwest) to get to the junction with Gonville Place. Cross the road, cross Parker's Piece diagonally (past the Reality Checkpoint), and turn right up St Andrew's Street towards the centre of town. The obvious curry is the Curry Queen, roughly opposite the White Swan on the south side of Mill Road slightly towards town, or the Kohinoor, which can be reached by turning right out at the Mill Road/Mawson Road junction rather than left; it's on the right near the junction. From either, turn left up Mill Road to get back into town.
Meeting in The Portland Arms at 7pm
5 (plus one bonus) pubs visited (total 25) - attendees: Stew Sage, Ed Green, Sarah Knight
- The Portland Arms
(129 Chesterton Road, near where Milton Road meets Mitcham's Corner)
- The Grapes
(19 Histon Road, near Victoria Road)
The Traveller's Rest
(215 Huntingdon Road, opposite Whitehouse Lane; arguably a restaurant, not a pub) The Traveller's Rest was deemed, after argument, Not A Pub
- The Sir Isaac Newton
(84 Castle Street, near Mount Pleasant, on the corner of the entrance to car parks)
- The Castle Inn
(36 Castle Street)
- The Punter
(3 Pound Hill, corner of Northampton Street) Note: Order of the Punter and Castle switched compared with planned route
The County Arms
(43 Castle Street) The County Arms was closed (apparently temporarily) when visited
- The Pickerel Inn
(30 Magdalene Street, opposite Magdalene College) - attended but not really considered part of the crawl
- The Portland Arms is on the north side of Mitcham's Corner, where Milton Road leaves the one way system. Mitcham's corner is the one-way system connection around a Staples and a Lloyds Bank, connecting Victoria Road, Victoria Avenue, Chesterton Road and Milton Road.
- Turn right out of the Portland Arms, west up Victoria Road. Follow the length of Victoria Road. At the junction with Histon Road (where the road splits into several lanes), veer right. The Grapes is on the west side of Histon Road as the dividing lanes join into Histon Road, opposite the supermarket. If you're going to the Traveller's Rest, consider ordering a taxi before you order beer.
- Turn right out of The Grapes, follow Histon Road down to Huntingdon Road. If you're visiting the Traveller's Rest (which has historically been included, but whose staff currently describe it as "to be honest, a bar on the hotel, but a pub crawl would be cool"), turn right, out of town, along Huntingdon Road (if you're skipping the Traveller's Rest, turn left down Castle Hill towards the Sir Isaac Newton instead). The Traveller's Rest is a long way down on the left (southwest) side of the road, opposite Whitehouse Lane and barely inside the city limit. If you are walking to the Traveller's Rest and back, you are likely to be under time pressure.
- Turn right out of the Traveller's Rest and travel (preferably on wheels) back down Huntingdon Road, passing the traffic-lit junction with Victoria Road on the left and Mount Pleasant on the right. The Sir Isaac Newton is on the left (east) side of the road, next to an entrance to the businesses on Castle Hill.
- Turn left out of the Sir Isaac Newton, down Castle Hill. Cross the road and turn right down Castle Row, before the Curry Centre. Turn left onto Shelly Row, continue past Albion Row on the right, then turn right down Pound Hill. The Punter is on the left at the junction with Northampton Street. You may wish to leave the Punter for the Chesterton Crawl, in which case the rest of the crawl - even if the Pickerel and possibly Baron of Beef are added - involves walking down and up Castle Hill.
- Note that the actual attendees did the Castle Inn before the Punter, thus ending in a less obvious pub. They resolved this situation by attending the Pickerel, but not officially.
- Turn right out of the Punter, back up Pound Hill. Veer left at the top, then right along a footpath than runs alongside the County Arms. Veer right at the end, away from the County, down Castle Hill. The Castle Inn is on the left as you walk down the hill. If you haven't done the Traveller's Rest (or have used powered transport), are making good time, and consider this crawl to be a bit short, you may wish instead to turn left out of the Punter, east along Northampton Street, and continue to the (traffic-lit) crossroads with Magdalene Street and the bottom of Castle Street. You could then turn right, down Magdalene Street, and pick up The Pickerel Inn, which is on the right before the bridge. This shortens the otherwise-long Town Centre Crawl. If doing this, turn left out of the Pickerel and continue up Castle Street to reach the Castle Inn, which is on the right. It is a bad idea to rely on having time for this option if trying to walk to the Traveller's Rest and back. If missing the Punter as well (to put it on the Chesterton Crawl), you may wish to consider taking in The Baron of Beef, which is on the left as you walk farther down Bridge Street.
- Turn right out of the Castle Inn, up the hill. The County Arms is on the opposite side from the Castle Inn.
- To head back to town, turn right out of the County Arms and head down Castle Hill. Cross at the bottom to get to Bridge Street. The obvious curry opportunity is the Maharajah, which is on the right as you walk down Castle Hill, near the Castle Inn.
Meeting in the Clarendon Arms at 7:30pm
7 pubs visited (total 20) - attendees: Stew Sage, Ed Green, Sarah Knight, Rupert Thompson, Patrick Barrie, Andrew Garrard (belatedly), Harley Jones (Maypole only)
- The Clarendon Arms is on Clarendon Street, which is the small road off the Park Side/Park Terrace/Parker Street crossroads (at the corner of Parker's Piece). The pub is on the west side of the road, just south of Victoria Street.
- Turn left out of the Clarendon Arms, northeast up Clarendon Street, which becomes Jesus Terrace and (after passing the pedestrianised end of Fitzroy Street and the Eden Chapel on the right) Fair Street. The Hopbine is on the right (east) side of Fair Street.
- Turn right out of the Hopbine and continue north up Fair Street to Maids Causeway. Turn right (east) and the Burleigh Arms is some distance down, on the far (north) side of the road. Note: you will pass The Zebra. Do not be tempted. Wrong crawl, granddad.
- Turn right out of the Burleigh, back west along Maids Causeway. You will eventually reach a roundabout. King Street is the second road on the left, after (west of) Sturton Street Church. The St Radegund is on the far (west) side of King Street, near the roundabout (northeast) end.
- Turn right out of the St Radegund, west along King Street. The King Street Run is on the left (south) side of King Street.
- Turn left out of the King Street Run, continuing west along King Street. The Champion of the Thames is on the left.
- Turn left out of the Champion of the Thames and cross King Street, continuing west. The Bun Shop is on the right, just before Malcolm Street. Since it's now a wine bar and not a pub, do not go in.
- Continue past the Bun Shop, if that's still its name. Turn right down Malcolm Street, then continue to end. Turn left onto Jesus Lane, following the road down to the traffic lights with Park Street, where you should turn right. Pass the ADC, continue past the Park Street car park. The Maypole is on the left, just after the car park.
- To get back to town, turn right out of the Maypole and right again up Round Church Street, after the car park - this will take you to Bridge Street and the junction with St John's Street. The obvious curry opportunity is to turn right up Bridge Street and head to the Curry King, in the passageway between the Mitre and the Baron of Beef.
7 pubs to visit (total 13).
Meeting at the Fort St George from 6:45pm.
Please note: Arbury has historically been home to a disproportionate amount of anti-university feeling. While this is not as pervasive as was once the case, it is best not to aggravate matters: please go out of your way to be on your best behaviour, and it may help not to be too obviously-connected with the university (e.g. avoid wearing college scarves or Quarter Blues).
- Make your way to the Fort St George. This is on the river at the corner of Midsummer Common near Victoria Avenue, by the pedestrian bridge which links to Pretoria Road, and at the junction of several paved paths across Midsummer Common. It is traditional to do this crawl on November 5th, which provides the opportunity to watch the fireworks on Midsummer Common. In this case, it is a good idea to get beer at the Fort St George early - there is likely to be a long queue - and be near the pedestrian bridge when the fireworks finish, so as to beat the rush. Anyone playing catch-up after the fireworks may find the queue at the Fort St George to be less an issue than the Old Spring, which is less equipped to spread out.
- Turn left (southeast) out of the pub, away from Victoria Avenue, and cross the Cam at the pedestrian bridge. Walk up Pretoria Road, turn left at the end onto Hamilton Road, and follow it round towards Chesterton Road. The Old Spring is on the left. Expect a long queue if doing this crawl after fireworks.
- Turn northeast along Chesterton Road (away from the Mitcham's Corner one-way system), cross Chesterton Road at the pedestrian crossing and turn left down George Street. Continue to the T-junction with Milton Road (a main road) and turn right. Cross Milton Road and follow it northeast, crossing the roundabout junction with Elizabeth Way. Continue past the traffic lights at Arbury Road, and the Milton Arms is on the left (northwast) side of Milton Road.
- Turn left out of the Milton Arms and continue northeast down Milton Road. Continue to the major crossroads with King's Hedges Road. The Golden Hind is opposite, on the north corner of the crossroads.
- Turn right out of the Golden Hind, up King's Hedges Road, and cross over. Turn left (southwest) onto Campkin Road, following it round the bend as it turns northwest. The Jenny Wren is on the right (northeast), just before the junction with St Kilda Road.
- Turn right out of the Jenny Wren, down Campkin Road. You then have two choices:
- The simpler route is to continue down Campkin Road and turn right at the second mini-roundabout, up Northfields Avenue. Stay on Northfields Avenue as it veers northeast. Just after the roundabout with Cameron Road, the Ship is on the right, with the entrance near Northfields Avenue. (Ignore the Google map linked in the directions - do not divert up Aragon Close and Northfield Avenue).
- The shorter route is to turn right off Campkin Road up the pedestrian route from the car park near St Kilda Avenue. Follow the path as directly northwest as possible, keeping buildings to the left (and mostly open ground to the right). When there are trees instead of buildings to the left, follow the path through them to the left (west, then southwest) and continue where the path rejoins the road (Cameron Road). Continue southwest down Cameron Road; The Ship is on the right, near the roundabout junction with Northfields Avenue; you will probably have to walk to the northwest edge of the building to find an entrance. If looking at this on an on-line map, it's worth using a satellite view, because the pedestrian route is separate from roads. It is inadvisable to take this route except in a group, especially after dark - it is poorly-lit and hidden from the road, and Arbury has traditionally contained a population with some anti-university feeling, so it is unwise for lone students to expose themselves to danger. It is also easy to get lost in this back route. If not in a group, the Northfields Avenue route is safer.
From The Ship, turn left (southwest) down Northfields Avenue past the roundabout with Cameron Road, continuing as it veers southeast to the junction with Campkin Way. Turn right onto Campkin Road (one can cut the corner diagonally across the grass here), then cross Campkin Road and turn left at the junction with Arbury Road. Cross Arbury Road and The Grove is on the right (southwest) side.
Turn left out of The Grove (taking the exit away from the car park if possible, otherwise walking around three sides of the building), heading south away from Arbury Road down the pedestrian route into Arbury Court (shops). Veer right (west) on entering Arbury Court and head through the gap onto Alex Wood Road. Follow Alex Wood Road west, veering left at the roundabout with Mansel Way to stay on Alex Wood Road and passing Montgomery Road on your left. At the T-junction with Carlton Way, turn left (southwest). The Carlton Arms is some distance down on the right (northwest) side, after Perse Way (on the right) and Metcalfe Road (on the left).
- Assuming that The Grove is still dead, from The Ship, turn left (southwest) down Northfields Avenue past the roundabout with Cameron Road, then veer right at the next roundabout onto Roxburgh Road. Turn immediately left (souwthwest) into another part of Roxburgh Road and continue southwest to the end, where it becomes Hanson Court. A footpath will take you to the Nicholson Way, which you should cross over to reach the (parallel) Arbury Road. Cross Arbury Road and turn right (northwest), then take the next left onto Mere Way at the roundabout. Continue southwest along Mere Way, over a roundabout, as it turns into Carlton Road. The Carlton Arms is some way down, on the right (northwest) side. If you reach Gilbert Road, you've gone too far.
- To get back to the centre of town, turn right from the Carlton Arms and walk to the crossroads with Gilbert Road. Turn left, southeast, down Gilbert Road, then right at the bottom, which will turn you southwest along Milton Road. Walk to Mitcham's Corner and cross southwards to Victoria Avenue (the main road across the river). Walk down Victoria Avenue, then take the second, third or fourth exit from the roundabout to get to Short Street (for Emmanuel etc.), King Street (past the St Radegund, for Christ's, King's, etc.) or Jesus Lane (Jesus). If heading to the north of town (Murray Edwards, Fitz, Churchill, etc.) you may prefer to turn right at the crossroads between Carlton Way and Gilbert Road, then left onto Histon Road, which will take you to the Histon Road/Huntingdon Road/Castle Street/Victoria Road junction. One can cut a corner by continuing from Carlton Way to Stretten Avenue instead of turning at Gilbert Road, then veering left at Harvey Goodwin Avenue and then right at Victoria Road, but this is a less main road route if navigating alone. There is no curry opportunity obviously close to the Carlton Arms - the Maharajah on Castle Hill or the Curry King near Bridge Street may be the nearest options.
6 pubs visited - attendees: Ed Green, Stewart Sage, Patrick Driscoll, Andrew Garrard
Meeting in Quinn's from 7:30pm.
Directions ending at the Tram Depot:
- Make your own way to Quinn's. Downing Street runs past the south side of the New Museum Site and the north side of the Downing Site, between Pembroke College and Emmanuel College. (Note: Downing College is not on Downing Street.) Quinn's is on the north side of the road, between Corn Exchange Street and St Tibb's Row.
- Turn left (east) out of Quinn's and walk down Downing Street to St Andrew's Street (opposite Emmanuel College). Turn right and walk south, down St Andrew's Street. The Castle is on the right, so stay on the west side of the road.
- Turn right, south down St Andrews Street, out of The Castle and cross the road. Turn left (north-east) down Park Terrace, before the University Arms hotel. When you get to the crossroads, turn right (south-east) down Parkside and cross to the north-east side of the road. If you cut the corner here be wary of the railings and any rope that's protecting the cricket pitch on Parker's Piece. As you walk south-east down Parkside, Melbourne Place is a pedestrian route on your left, roughly opposite one of the tarmacced paths across Parker's Piece. Turn down Melbourne Place; the entrance to The First And Last is on the right, just before you get to Prospect Row.
- Turn right (north-east) out of the First And Last and walk alongside the pub to Prospect Row. The Elm Tree is diagonally to the left, roughly north of the First And Last.
- Head diagonally right out of the Elm Tree down Prospect Row (a road navigable by cars), across the side of the First And Last (not back down Melbourne Place). The Free Press is on the left (north-east) side of the road.
- Turn left out of the Free Press, heading south-east down Prospect Row to the end of the road. Turn left (north-east) onto Adam and Eve Street, then right (east) onto Dover Street. The Tram Depot is on the left (north) side of the road.
- To get back to the centre of town, turn right out of the East Road exit from the Bakers and walk to Parker's Piece. Walk diagonally across to get to St Andrews Street, and (unless going to Downing) right to head towards the town centre. Alternatively, stay on East Road alongside Parker's Piece (Gonville Place) to the junction with Regent Street, then veer right if heading towards an obvious curry opportunity (the Gandhi on Regent Street).
