I'm not too young to have had a beer in Baker Street station but can't remember if it were right on the platform(s)

There may have been others - but i was thinking of the Hole in the Wall at sloane square.

It's closed now and has been since the 70s I think.

Battlebridge = no, it couldn't be could it..... Mornington Crescent?!

Here's a way of really wasting some time:

Wasn't the area around either Euston or St.Pancras once known as "battlebridge?"

Which was why I suggested Mornington Crescent, but I don't think that's right. I don't think it's either Euston or King's Cross because the mainline stations were there before the tube. I'm wondering about one of the stations serving Hampstead Heath since that's nearer where the battle itself took place.

Battlebridge is Kings Cross.
