More “Guess the Pub” fun for your Saturday, as I bring you another of the brilliant “360 degrees pub tours on Google Maps”.
Admit it, if I hadn’t told you this was a Shisha lounge you’d have guessed it was communal bench seating from the Black Country, wouldn’t you ?
Here’s the first clue to our location.
and here’s a second.
This pub has never knowingly graced the GBG, in fact the only time I’ve been to this suburb of a suburb was to visit a dull boozer where the Pride was drinking well.
Our mystery pub has a beer range to match any in Magaluf, AND a charity box on the bar rather than the wall.
You’d expect to see Pride, or Courage Best, on the pump(s), but the last lucky chap to come here for Pubs Galore (not Will) found a decent Spitfire.
Not a classic, but in some ways the archetypal keg community pub, the sort you’d find in Wigan or Grimsby or even north Sheffield, where I saw a shisha takeover recently.
I’m sure our old codgers club would pop in here for a pint of Fosters and a puff on the pipe (not a euphemism, Russ); perhaps Pete Allen already has ?
Wiki has nothing much to say about the home of our mystery pub, though it is barely half a mile from another of Isambard’s most famous works. That Brunel got everywhere, didn’t he ?
Oh, and mind out for the wolf across the road.
