One more post before the September Stocktake, which for a change will be virtually up-to-date. We had real fun finding a hotel close to the coast, eventually getting an apartment (wait a minute) on the edge of Eastbourne. I’m with holding judgement and reviews till I get the deposit back. Golly, ideally placed for two… Continue reading POLEGATE – FAIR DINKUM
I’m not saying I want to close down all breweries, but it would make it much easier to see the pubs on the GBG maps if we did. On this extract from the Northern Ireland map, you might make complex travel plans before you realise that ALL the entries bar Coleraine are within a Causeway… Continue reading MORE BREWERIES THAN GBG PUBS IN HORSHAM
From Maidenhead we headed towards the coast, where Mrs RM is just about to start an assignment yards from Brighton Station the Evening Star. 20 years ago we’d have set off from Hitchin on a Friday night, phoned a Premier Inn/Lodge on the way, and end up somewhere interesting for £30. “Interesting” meaning Stroud, Sandbach… Continue reading HORSHAM BOYS (AND GAL)
Oh grief, I’ve just read that cartoon. Too late to stop now. I was hoping Mrs RM would blog about the Winning Post in Winkfield, but she said she “can’t be bothered“. It’s a shame, as she overhears more than I do. She’s let me use her photo, though. Apparently the one on the left… Continue reading “IS TARA COMING TO THE HUNT ?”
I see the respected town critic Mrs RM has just pronounced on Maidenhead, and it’s not pretty. “my presentation works in Roland the rat catcher and Cyril the cesspit emptier. It seemed somehow fitting…. “ Reader, I have to tell you I was almost keen to defend Maidenhead after her vitriol against the town as… Continue reading A MAIDENHEAD REDEMPTION ?
PARENTAL ADVISORY : CONTAINS MAIDENHEAD I don’t wish to over excite my readers, but you can expect posts from Mrs RM on Maidenhead very shortly. Once she’s had an hour in her luxury Brighton hotel to recover. Spoiler : I will be entirely vindicated. As a teaser to the main event, here’s a post from… Continue reading PINKNEYS GREEN – MORE EXCITING THAN IT SOUNDS
You can’t have too much Doncaster, though Simon may disagree. He’s a delicate flower. Two new Guide pubs in Donny, putting it level in the table with North Rotherham and Holy Island for new GBG thrills. I started a mile out in Scawsby, which really wants the Sun for Scawsby. Doncaster may take a look… Continue reading A DONNY OVERKILL
