While my heart recovers from today’s exertions at the Etihad, here is a more gentle post prompted by this week’s Somerset survey. Back to reality, or at least to Wigan, tomorrow.

If Mrs RM is reading this, here are a few Christmas present suggestions.  All would look good in my man cave garage, and can probably be acquired from Martin Kemp’s pub/emporium in Saxon Street.  The Robinsons item is particularly fetching, though of course Bass is Best.

NB The Berlin example above shows the appeal of British pub culture abroad; the three below and at the top (Cross Keys, Lydford) are from a particularly strong representation seen recently in the West Country. 

Buttercross, Chippenham


New Inn, Tywardreath
