De Hems is shut for refurbishment again. At least I hope it is merely for a quick spit and polish because its the kind of large central London specialist boozer that we cannot do without (Oranjeboom on tap). The only thing that worries me is the fact that I’m pretty sure it was being done out six months ago. Its closure might be something to do with the water main which is up all the way down Gerrard Street mind.
