The Flask to Flask

Autumn is the perfect time of year for Sunday lunch and last Sunday was no exception. We arranged with a large group of friends, kids and dogs to have lunch at The Flask pub in Hampstead.

We had a large table for fourteen with two dogs hidden underneath and ate a delicious lunch. It was lovely and warm inside and we were somewhat reluctant to leave!

After lunch we trotted out into the brisk afternoon and set off across Hampstead Heath to walk to a pub in Highgate, also called The Flask.

After a ramble around the Heath (one with a hip flask to complete the hat-trick) we arrived at the Flask in Highgate just as it was starting to get dark (it was 4pm). We were surprised to find an incredible shrine dedicated to George Michael where loyal fans were lighting candles and tending the memorial. It was quite moving.

We had a couple of drinks at the pub but as we were outside it was starting to get very cold. Before long we rallied the troops and walked through the dark, cold streets to the warmth of the tube station and eventually home. 

A good day out!
