If you were a crack addled, talentless bit of tabloid fodder and you wanted to set up a clandestine meeting with possibly the world's most recognisable supermodel, where would you go?
A low key greasy spoon in Wood Green perhaps? Or maybe the 'large print' section of Balham lbrary?
You see, you're just not thinking like a media star. If you're Pete Doherty and Kate Moss and you want to keep things on the 'down low' then the ideal rendezvous point is of course the Westbourne Pub in Notting Hill.
The reasoning, according to "a source close to the couple", quoted in the News of the World today, is:
They've met up a few times but have been very careful not to get spotted. They decided to go to that pub because it's the last place anyone would look for them.
t's not exactly the trendiest pub around there and they have managed to get away with it - until now.
Wait a minute: the Westbourne was the least-trendy pub they could find in Notting Hill? Are we talking about the same pub here? The one opposite The Cow where you can amost smell the superiority complex seeping out the barstaff's pores and it takes a good 45 minutes to get a drink if you're not wearing the right trainers?
We're pretty sure there's a good half-a-dozen drinking establishments within spitting distance of The Westbourne where the 'regulars' (one old guy sipping half a mild and his dog) wouldn't know Moss or Doherty if they fell on them.
It's almost as if they wanted to be seen.
