Welcome to the nerve centre of RetiredMartin.com, where I’ve given in to that exciting bottle of Belgian “Fruitage” tonight while I give you a late night Guess the Unconventional Pub.
Etu or Lorenzo will have it already, JRC will identify it from the drone pictures,
Not much to tell you about the location; there’s no school, church* or Post Office here; but plenty of places to eat and sleep. There used to be a greyhound track too, but that never made the GBG, unlike Chester-le-Street.
Duncan’s ears will prick up when he hears this unusual boozer was a one-time Guide entry. At least, I only remember the one time, but Duncan has a spreadsheet which may prove otherwise.
Surely he’ll remember the Bass mirror; you don’t see too many of those, do you ?
No obvious cricket connections this time, but this pub shares a name with a footballing legend who made ONE appearance in his club’s best ever season and scored ONE goal, against some Tigers. If stuck, ask Roger.
One cask beer on the bar, recently switched from West to South Yorkshire, but you can see what the largely casual trade drinks.
Oi mate, don’t forget your keys !
Accommodation here is good value and “cosy“; I’m highly tempted by a return visit to sample that haute cuisine. And the four poster restaurant.
*Well, not strictly a church, anyway.
