I have recently graduated from Cambridge school of art with a degree in Illustration. My final major project was a guide book to lesser known places of interest in London and The Seven Stars in Carey street was one of the places I illustrated. I went there several times and can say that the pub is fantastic - friendly, nice food, good beer and the cat is fantastic. Anyone who is interested can download a PDF version of my book from gallery 1 via the link below to read what I had to say about the pub and see my illustration www.man-in-a-hat.t83.net (Glenn Pickering)
