Onward to Maenclochog, which is easy for you to say.
Middle of nowhere, and 3 days on camel from Pontfaen.
Never heard of it, which just goes to show how much of the UK is undiscovered. Like Erith and Belverdere.
It’s a village that lets its heritage decline naturally, I’ll say that.
And you thought Grimesthorpe was the Wild West.
The Globe looked like a journey back in time, and not just because of my dodgy camerawork.
So what gets the Globe into the Guide in 2019.
Community buyout ? Local homebrew ?
After Abbot or nowt in Newport, Duncan seemed disappointed at a choice of Speckled Hen or Strongbow in the Globe.
Full up of coke, I asked what non-alcoholic options they had, and got a decent enough “Bavarian Premium Original”. I’m sure that’s what the Old Boy had in Selsey.
But what a Landlady this was. Chatty, cheery, helpful.
And what a pub.
Locals to the left, the bar in the middle, a “secret room” off to the right.
If this was in Cambridgeshire it would be up there with our regional treasures. Here it’s just another unpretentious local with good beer. And it was good, however narrow the range.
I thought Duncan might by now want to stick to the plan. I was wrong.
