Pub Garden

‘Many as are the virtues of the Moon Under Water (The Gin Trap), I think that the garden is its best feature….’

George Orwell, wrote in the Evening Standard in 1946 about his favourite pub, The Moon Under Water, ‘The great surprise of the Moon Under Water (The Gin Trap) is its garden. You go through a narrow passage leading out of the saloon, and find yourself in a fairly large garden with plane trees, under which there are little green tables with iron chairs round them.’
