Greetings from the nerve centre of retiredmartin, the only space in the house I’m allowed while Mrs RM arranges sofas, carpets, lino and probably other things I wouldn’t understand.
Don’t faint, but I’ve just been to A NEW PUB ! It might even make WhatPub, if not GBG22*. Details to follow. Thanks to Sheffield Hatter for recommending the Gogmagog (above), a 9% stout names after a Cambridge golf club.
To keep John, Etu and Lorenzo occupied, here’s a quick Guess the Pub you may find easy if you know how my mind works, which is more than I can say about myself.
Aren’t the colours in Bavarian pubs gorgeous ?
I had one of those Hofbrauhaus steins but it seems to failed to survive the trip north. And I’ve just broke the 2019 Indyman tasting glass. Is there an Indyman this year ?
Our mystery pubs is no doubt older than it looks; Bavarian beer halls are notable for their quality.
Traditional German music here on most nights. Here we have a local Kraftwerk tribute band called The Check Shirt Man Machine playing Side 2 of Radioactivity.
And those sausages that always seem a good idea until you weigh yourself afterwards. Good to know : Don’t ever weigh yourself.
This particular beer hall wasn’t frequented by noted scholar Johann Dietrich, who studied long before the arrival of the nail salons, charging stations and cosmetic surgery clinics for which the hilly surrounding streets are best known.
As Bertie Vogts might say, “Prost”.
*Though now GBG22 will allow the “best” branches to have their 100% of entries again we might see a re-allocation from South Lanarkshire to South Yorkshire so who knows ?
