EVERYTHING (IN CARDIGAN) BUT THE PUB

You left us at Cardigan’s Angel Hotel with chilli sauce dripping down our chins (mine, anyway, can’t speak for Duncan).

No chance of a midnight pint of murk here.  In fact no sign that the bar ever opened.

But despite an overpowering smell of air freshener on the stairs, I’ll be using the Angel again as I conquer the West.  £32 a night for a quiet, well-equipped room.

Cardigan

And I’ll be back because the Grosvenor, my GBG “need” has decided to move forward its opening times by half an hour, just to frustrate me.

So I used my last hour in Cardigan to ruminate on marker pens with Duncan in the Coffee #1, and bring you the Highlights Package.

Looks great

Hancocks HB (save that for next time) and some birds.  Duncan will know what they are, he’s a bird expert.

“Hide ! It’s BRAPA”

It’s a strange town, but not in a Jam ay.

Very colourful, loads of independent businesses,

and a fair bit of history that interested me not one bit.

I walked it in 35 minutes, pausing only for the street art and to pick up a loaf of artisan sour dough at Bara Menyn.

Dory more convincing than Nemo, I feel

There were clearly bargains to be had, but I’d run out of time.

“Reasonably priced goods”

But I’ll be back.  As  Duncan and Si say every time a  micropub is closed.

  1. That’s the third of those old Worthington Best Bitter ( Carling Black Label on reverse ) signs in about as many days.
    Coincidently researching for my possible trip to mid Wales soon I’ve noticed that two of the three pubs in Llanfair Caereinion have Worthington Cask.
    The Buckleys sign is a bit newer but probably at least twenty years old.

      1. I’m not even sure if I’m going but if I do it might be at short notice dependant on fitting in between Proper Days Out in Shifnal, Preston and Bristol, accommodation availability and a forecast of it not being too hot.
