GUESS THE PUB PLAYS DARTS

No, not THESE Darts.

They originated in Brighton in 1976, coincidentally when our mystery pub was last refurbished (thankfully).

The village shares little with Brighton, bar an “o”, an “h” and a “t”, but rather more with a town on the A5190.

The map extract may help, but it rarely does.

I wanted to tell you the local football team is one of the oldest professional football teams in the world, but Wikipedia doesn’t think so even if they do. They’re not even at the races.

As for the pub, this photo MAY help.

But if you’re looking for a clue from the name given to bread rolls you’re out of luck.

Finally, our sporty boozer has three lions to contend with, and would probably lose out in a non-sporting contest.

Nice whisky casks, but the answer lies in the sherry.

  1. It’s the Cross Foxes in Coedpoeth. I claim my half of keg Pedi in a Marston’s dining pub on the outskirts of Dundee.

    1. I like you Bill. You came straight out with it, no messing about with coy “I think I know” nonsense.

      Does keg Pedi exist ? More to the point, do pubs in Scotland exist ?

      1. I’m sure I’ve had keg Pedi somewhere. Pubs in Scotland do still exist. They will be opening their wine (Buckfast) gardens next month.

      2. Marston’s took cask beer out of virtually all their pubs in Scotland a couple of years ago. Keg Pedigree does exist – I once had it in a dining pub in Chadderton.

      3. Unfortunately keg Pedi does. “Pedigree is also unique – not only is it still brewed in oak casks, but it’s the only beer left in Britain that is brewed with water from the actual Burton well. In a world of laddish lightweights, keg Pedigree is a beer for people who know what they like and who can enjoy it in a warm, friendly atmosphere without going too far. It’s a beer for grown ups who still have a sense of what keeps them young, for people who are serious about their beer without being nerdy about it. It’s also the official beer of the England cricket team.” Only some of this may be true.

    2. Coedpoeth means “burnt wood”, I read. There’s a place at the end of the A5109 called Burnt Oak, so I guess that’s as good as it gets.

      1. You’ve got your A5190 (Lichfield to Cannock) mixed up with your A5109 (Whetstone to Burnt Oak). An easy mistake to make. There is a Burntwood on the A5190.

        If in you can explain the sherry clue to me in exchange for this valuable nugget I’d be most grateful.

        Cheers.

      2. Lorenzo, the scoreboard behind the sherry says …xes so if you could guess common words ending in that then you’d have it, maybe?

  2. Oh. It’s about 10 miles from where I was looking. Not sure how the clues lead me to a place ten miles away. Was about to ask if it was near a place where aircraft are manufactured.

    Can we have the next one now being as this one was over so quickly?

    Cheers.

    If I had 1,000 monkeys pounding on typewriters without using ‘b’, ‘r’, ‘i’, ‘g’ or ‘n’, I’m sure I’d come up with it… eventually. πŸ˜‰

    “The map extract may help, but it rarely does.”

    Is that a… glacier?

    “As for the pub, this photo MAY help.”

    I see from the photo that they have a beer garden. That narrows it down immensely! πŸ™‚

    “But if you’re looking for a clue from the name given to bread rolls you’re out of luck.”

    Well obviously, as we were told earlier no using the letter ‘b’.

    “Finally, our sporty boozer has three lions to contend with, and would probably lose out in a non-sporting contest.”

    Trying to look up The Three Lions is as hard as The Red Lion!

    “Nice whisky casks, but the answer lies in the sherry.”

    The answer always lies in some sort of booze. πŸ˜‰

    Cheers

  4. “They originated in Brighton in 1976”,
    The 1976 national AGM was in Brighton and i remember that it was declared there that “CAMRA is now the consumers’ organisation for all people who go into pubs.”
    Forty-two years later the “Revitalisation” project didn’t agree.

  5. Apparently – the interweb is a wonderful invention for information – the England Cricket Team has since moved on to a five year deal with Greene King IPA (the cask or keg version not specified). On current performance Kingfisher might have been a better option.
