VIRTUAL PUB PLEASURES via GOOGLE MAPS

Mrs RM says I’m coping remarkably well with the latest Lockdown, and she may be right. I guess I’m safe in the knowledge that Duncan and BRAPA and The Maltmeister can’t visit any more pubs than I can, though quite how many pubs will be left to tick when they’re allowed to re-open is anyone’s guess.

The highlight of today was squashing boxes and taking them to the recycling centre 5 minutes away. Even Ed has had a better Wednesday;

But I’m taking joy in the simple things in life. A cat scrambling down the roof in 2am, the more-than-adequate sourdough at Asda, and regular pest correspondent etu*, sending me a link to look inside the Philadelphia Function Suite I keep lusting after on the way into town.

I think the sign outside confused our Russ into thinking the Philadelphia is a church.

Nope definitely a pub. Of the club variety.

I counted at least 4 rooms, and this cute little snug for four.

But the highlight is the pool room with its gorgeous porcine artwork.

No real ale (one is plenty, etc), but Nutty Black in bottles to be enjoyed under the glitterball, or on the veranda.

Well, I can’t wait to be there. And you’ll know I mean that, sincerely.

If anyone else has Google views INSIDE pubs, particularly ones inside estate pubs in Dundee, please send me the link.

Thanks to Mike Bellwood.

  1. Google Tynemouth Lodge Hotel, Barca and Cumberland Arms in Tynemouth. All have tours done by me. Even did the Bass in the Lodge cellar!

    That is such a sad bloody thought. (sigh)

    “The highlight of today was squashing boxes and taking them to the recycling centre 5 minutes away. Even Ed has had a better Wednesday;”

    Yes, but squashing long johns flat isn’t half as much fun… unless someone is wearing them. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Serves you right for using Bing Maps. ๐Ÿ™‚

    “I think the sign outside confused our Russ into thinking the Philadelphia is a church.”

    I was going by the Jesus Christ Apostolic sign in front. But, in retrospect, pubs are certainly holy sites to some. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    “I counted at least 4 rooms, and this cute little snug for four.”

    Oooh, good idea. I’ll keep that in mind for my man shed/pub… which probably won’t be finished until the UK is in it’s 17th lockdown.

    “with its gorgeous porcine artwork.”

    I didn’t know anything porcine could be considered gorgeous.

    Lazy bum! Go to Google Maps, choose the area, click on the wee little man in the bottom right and check the surrounding area for light blue circles (photo spheres). Drop the wee little man in one and peruse to your heart’s content!* ๐Ÿ™‚

    Cheers

    * – for instance; the Garrison Hotel, about a 15 minute walk from you:
