SOAKED PHONES IN WOO WOO

Mrs RM is free to nick any of my photos from Winchester for her blog, for the usual fee.

For such a posh town city, Winchester always delivers a decent night out. Perhaps because people do still go out, and not just at weekends.

Loads of folk like us (old, careworn etc etc), young professionals and students (all in the Spoons, mind). Perhaps Winchester University Bar isn’t that cheap.

We’d eaten in the Overdraft, again.

You know how much we love those keg flights.

Nice font for Matthew

This is the local craft place with a DJ playing naff vinyl unironically.

Great LP covers

Dead or Alive “You Spin Me Around” we knew, but I drew a blank on this one.

Only a braver man than me would go cask, so I had Electric Bear while Mrs RM looked sniffily at a tulip of 8% Imperial IPA from Squawk.

“A half ?”

It’s 8%. And a pint would have taken you over your expenses limit”

“Oh, OK.”

Here’s the seafood platter that cost the same as 11 pints of Sam Smiths OBB at the Boar’s Head. We enjoyed it.

Yet more squid

But there is only one place to finish off an evening in Winchester, and after that Doom Bar interlude we headed for the Old Gaolhouse, cruelly out of the current Guide but hopefully back in for BRAPA’s visit in 2028.

Mrs RM only knows it as the inflatable cock pub.

Even on Wednesday in October, it was heaving and chaotic, with the ladies on the the next table vailiantly trying to revive a mobilephone dropped in their pitcher of Woo Woo.

Put it this way, when I searched my own blog for last year’s post, I typed in “Gomorrah” by accident.

Anyway, here’s the salted caramel brownie.

“Mine, all mine”

No, she didn’t share. I didn’t dare ask.

  1. “Here’s the seafood platter that cost the same as 11 pints of Sam Smiths OBB at the Boar’s Head” – but that’s not Proper Food like the sausage rolls and sausages platter in the Circus Tavern that cost nowt. .

  2. “No”

    Is that in reference to the type of glass, the flight thingy, or the ‘basically chips’ on the menu?

    “but I drew a blank on this one.”

    Is that Afghan hip hop?

    ““It’s 8%. And a pint would have taken you over your expenses limit””

    Pfft. She could’ve put your pint on her expenses instead of hers. 😉

    “Yet more squid”

    All I see is nachos, onion rings, and flat bread. 🙂

    “Mrs RM only knows it as the inflatable cock pub.”

    Good thing she didn’t have to ask for directions from someone! 🙂

    “trying to revive a mobilephone dropped in their picture of Woo Woo.”

    You have pictures that are 3D? 😉

    “No, she didn’t share. I didn’t dare ask.”

    She probably would have said ‘something, something, inflatable cock’. 🙂

    Cheers

    1. Dick,
      “That is some food platter!” is what you couldn’t have said in the Marble Arch.
      Hope you’ve both arrived home safely with some good memories.

      1. Odd thing about the Marble is in years gone I’d have said a bit expensive but best pub food in Manchester, but the cheaper menu we had there at New Year was deeply unsatisfying.
