Site: George Orwell and Dylan Thomas (2 memorials)

W1, Rathbone Place, 25, The Wheatsheaf Public House

The pair of them drank individually at several pubs in the area. Whether they quaffed here together at the same time is not known for sure, but no doubt the conversation would have been fascinating.
