A PROPER HEAD ON THE BEER IN THE SUN

204 pub visits since pubs returned, but only half of those were new GBG ticks. Which is what we call deeply unprofessional in GBG Ticker Land.

SEVEN trips to my nearest pub, the inimitable Sun. Well, it is imitable; the Three Horseshoes in Ecton that BRAPA just raved about is pretty much a carbon copy.

SEVEN trips in 3 months almost makes it my local, I guess.

On Thursday I popped in just because I wanted some good beer after some very average stuff in Northumberland and the Lakes. Is that bad ?

It was quiet early evening, chilly drizzle putting off the folk who’d been making good use of the new outdoor area and with the legendary quiz yet to start.

All table service now, of course, but of course I can see the pumps from my table. Even if you can’t.

Youngs, Sharp’s and something localish I’ve forgotten. Gotta be Sea Fury. It’s the strongest, and if Mrs RM joins me after her pizza at the White Horse she’ll want that one.

Doesn’t it look beautiful ? (Yes, yes it does). Rich, full-bodied, cool,

A first NBSS 4 of the month. Despite the lack of company, I stay for a second in half an hour.

I admit to Andrew the Landlord I’m a Doom Bar fan. He’s unconvinced.

“Is that your wife walking past ?” says Andrew.

It is. I rush out.

Christie. Christie. Christie“.

She turns. It isn’t her.

    And a gorgeous photo of your local just below. (thumbs up)

    “SEVEN trips in 3 months almost makes it my local, I guess.”

    What? I take that is only because you’re never bloody home to visit said local!

    “Is that bad ?”‘

    As the saying goes; ‘if that’s bad, I don’t want to be good’. 😉

    “All table service now, of course, ”

    You’ll love this!

    (background) – Spent a glorious day out with my darling wife on Saturday, ranging over 100km from home looking for windows for my soon to be built pub/shed. Stopped for a bite to eat at a brewpub on the way back. We now have to go up to the bar to order our beer and food rather than wait for table service! The complete bloody opposite of what you’re doing. (sheesh)

    “Even if you can’t.”

    Surely you don’t need to see the pumps as your order your favourite plum porter?

    “Youngs, Sharp’s and something localish I’ve forgotten.”

    Wait, what? So what were you drinking?

    “She turns. It isn’t her.”

    LOL. So… you went back in for another half? 🙂

    Cheers
