Enough “Guess the Pub” for today, time for some Bette Midler.
Hard to believe this classic sold less copies than Spizz Energi’s “Where’s Captain Kirk” when it was released at the end of ’79, but then we Brits failed to see the merit of a number of overblown soppy epics. Did you know that “Lost in Love” by Air Supply never charted in the UK either.
Anyway, come the Spring, whatever that is, I’m hoping to be able to see the Rose House in full bloom. I saw my first daffodil today, near the tram. I expect the eponymous song will be first on the jukebox, or at least after “WAP”*.
Everytime I walk past the Rose, on the way to the mini-Asda up Carr Hill, I mutter “Open the pubs“. I know they can’t; it’s just instinct, and lust for the keg Stones.
Today I found out that Cube Online have given me a 360 degrees tour of Walkley’s least crafty pub.
Let’s have a (virtual) look at what I’m missing.
Just the right side of the pub/club divide, it works for me, but Mrs RM would want a month to redesign the colour scheme.
You get the idea. Modernised bench seating, live entertainment, kiddies playground, Martin Gregory (possibly that one) appearing live every 5th Thursday.
Last Surveyed : Well, possibly never says What Pub. I could be useful !
When these photos were taken it had Bombardier, a Brains craft beer and something I don’t recognise, which is a range that would guarantee you a Pub of the Season award in Fife.
Sadly, with at least half a dozen top quality CAMRA favourites mere minutes away, plain but loveable locals like the Rose House can get overlooked. Now there’s a challenge; even Will and Alan didn’t make it in here.
Might skip the karaoke night though.
