Outsiders London Lunch to switch to Finch’s, 12a Finsbury Square EC2A 1AN

Everyone enjoyed the 35th Anniversary of the Outsiders at Finch’s in Finsbury Square — the staff were really helpful, our space was a bigger and brighter, they don’t have the television on, and the food amazing. So we are going to switch from their sister pub, Paternoster. There is an underground car park opposite, and it’s 4 minutes from Old Street tube, 6 minutes from Moorgate, and a bit further from Liverpool Street. We will put the details of transport and details up on this site (See Club – Events).20141124_Outsiders_Lunch_Finchs_Finsbury_Sq_1313
