Just for my favourite (occasional) Bass custodian at the Petersgate Tap, here’s east Yorkshire’s contribution to pub cricket.
The Coach and Horses in Welwick is about as far as you can venture without risk of being washed away when Spurn Head is lost forever on October 26th (visit now !).
The sign is worth a visit anyway, scoring 16 points (4 horses) under some rules, even more than that Pup & Duckling. I think any pub serving Bass should get a walkover.
Anyway, I mention this as the Landlord greeted me with “How many you got then !”, having me down as a Pub Cricket man. I played along.
Actually, I was greeted by a two year pointing at me and smiling. Yes, I look that weird, and I suspect the little fella had never seen an outsider before.
I’d been sceptical the pub would open, having failed to open the expected hours on my earlier sortie, but by 5.30 the whole village was in.
At the bar. This is the other half of the pub, looking lonely.
They were cheery enough, but no-one else drank the Great Newsome while I was there.
