Default Uxbridge black taxis


Does anyone know if the rank at Uxbridge has taxis on it, at most times of
the week... or at any times of the week? TIA.

At the bus/tube station? Very rarely. Luckily I'm served by the
Us 1, 3 & 5 from there, unless I get back from Town too close to midnight.
If you walk directly out of the station's front entrance, across the ped
area and High Street, you come to Windsor Street. Down there, past the
Queens Head pub, opposite the Metropolitan and close to a third pub whose
name escapes me, there's a minicab business based in a courtyard off the
right (i.e. west) side of the street[1]. ISTR they have a folding sign
set on the footpath. I've never used them, caveat emptor.

[1] Roughly at OS grid 505250,184250 according to streetmap.co.uk

There's another one on the High Street, whose number is stored in my
phobile (purpose of phobiles is to store cab numbers so you don't have
to walk anywhere. I was recently charged over the odds, so I'm rather
wary though.)

Someone gave me a lift back from last week's Uxbridge Choral concert...
