There’s something kind of magical about sipping mulled wine in December.
Whether it’s the rich spice aroma, the warmth in your gloved hands, or just the liquor itself making ya woozy, it’s a drink that makes Christmas.
Though when you’ve left your shopping until the last minute or want to mooch around the festive markets, sitting in a boozer swigging it by the gallon isn’t always practical.
To help you out in your moment of need, the splendid team over at TimeOut have assembled a list of all the London pubs serving takeaway mulled wine this winter.
