      The Harbour Bar was full of Royal Navy officers with debby girls. The debbiest took McKinley and me sailing, and afterwards we drank tankards of Pimms in the Yacht Club.
    • 1991, Meanjin, page 105:
      Sonya had ordered a Pimms; she had actually called it a ‘Pimm’, and had to be corrected by the young waiter. Marie remembered Sonya’s Pimms as a rather complicated drink which came with slices of orange and cucumber, a maraschino cherry, and a plastic stick for stirring.

      Drinks were regularly sold short – particularly Pimms, which could be served ready-mixed and was one of the few jobs of work Albert insisted on doing himself. [] The pub sold a lot of Pimms: it was in the sleazy shadow of Fulham where the criminals liked to pretend to be flash and the Sloanes pretended to be low-life. They combined well and the evenings were riots of exchanged gambling information, Pimms, pool and vodka doubles.
