WRECKED IN WRECSAM

Not strictly true, it was just a shared half of Mild in the birthplace of our greatest living haircut, but “Sober in Wrecsam” sounds rubbish.

I’m back to instant blogging, this time from a pub looking out over the River Conwy while listening to Steely Dan and drinking this.

I’ve had worse days.

And Wrecsam/Wrexham looked pretty good too, particularly on the approach from Bellevue Park.

Even the dustbins sparkled.

The High Street is not the UK’s greatest (but not its worst either), a string of fun pubs broken by a minor jewel.

A joule cruelly (?) evicted from the Guide in favour of a second Spoons, leaving Wrexham the only town with two Spoons in the Guide. And nothing else.

The North & South Wales Bank (N & S to its mates) makes the Elihu Vale seem like a Brunning and Price.

Unattractive, open, sabby, quite wonderful. An antidote to the posh Cambs pubs I had to take Simon to on Saturday.

They served three locals their Fosters/Carlsberg/Strongbow before me, and I didn’t care.

The Nottingham Mild was, astonishingly, a 3.5.

  1. I’ve always liked Nottingham Brewery beers.
    It’s three days since I did any North Wales GBG pubs, Patrick’s Bar and the Chainbridge – but I’ve just had two lovely pints of Abbot in my nearest Dorbiere pub.

    Bloody perfect I’d say. πŸ™‚

    “Even the dustbins sparkled.”

    You sure that’s not a Welsh Tardis?

    “broken by a minor jewel.”

    ( golf clap )

    “An antidote to the posh Cambs pubs I had to take Simon to on Saturday.”

    Yes but, are they still posh now that Si’s been there?

    “The Nottingham Mild was, astonishingly, a 3.5.”

    I’d have gone for the Kelham Island. πŸ˜‰

      1. Totally forgot that bit til Russ mentioned it, it happened didn’t it?

        But hey, am posh, I grew up in the Walden!

        Love the N&S bank (i’m One of mates), all life is here. V true re making other Spoons look like a B&P.

        If you wanna move to North Wales in a year’s time for a year to help me get to pubs like Ty Coch, I will allow it πŸ˜‰

  3. Where I live in the States has too much urban sprawl to expect to ever see a mobility scooter in front of a bar/brewery. But I keep hoping…
