London Pride has no particular reputation at present
Back in Switzerland

Hi there. I’m London Pride and together with my wife we moved back from London after spending six amazing years in the Capital. We are trying to settle in and getting used to the Swiss life style again. It’s quite hard to be honest, but we’re working on it. Luckily, we’ve got a great apartment which helps a lot, (and a few cans of London Pride, directly imported of course). Btw, where can I find a decent pub to get a nice London Pride just in case I’m running out of stock (which I obviously will at some point…)
I look forward to hearing some stories of how people got used to the idea of living here and, most importantly, where I can get a nice London Pride (maybe in conjunction with some footy…?)

Re: Back in Switzerland

You have your name as London Pride, you mentioned that you got cans of London Pride. To display the English influence on you invite the folks for London Pride. That is how it should start, don't need to tell you though as you are coming from London.

So how do you feel to be back? Please tell all the English folks here how great it is to be in London. They are are bloody sold out to Switzerland..

Its got to be the Oliver Twist in Niederdorf Zürich.
It has all the UK football on.
Be warned draught Pride does not travel, but its better than FA!

It's kind of nice to be back but I do miss London a lot. There's only one place to be in the UK and it's London. Sorry I've got only two cans here for very special occasions only...

That's great. Thanks for the response. I know the Oliver Twist from the past. Nice food as well
