GUESS THE PUB GOES TO THE GBG DESERT

Just for a change, a REAL ALE PUB ! The only one for miles, though it’ll never make the Good Beer Guide (“Er, it did, in 1978” says Duncan, who knows these things).

A Proper Pub, too. There’s a clue there somewhere.

I’m in one of the dullest towns on the planet, despite that Madness-themed mobility scooter.

No doubt some of you will only need the GBG extract due to your cheating.

This town has the dullest Wiki entry for miles, and its most famous sons (no famous daughters have emerged) include a worst haircut winner at the Smash Hits Poll Winners Party (whoop) and the the recipient of this famous kiss.

Oh, and the one-time home of this famous industry.

A classy place, I think the handpump is hidden because the staff love being asked for cask covertly like they do in Irish pubs.

One for fans of flags, I guess.

A half pint of Tayto Rough Cuts for the winner.

  1. I like the slogan on the model box: designed and built in England. That’s not where the diecast bodies were manufactured, though.

    1. SH,
      Yes, and if they’re proper authentic miniature reproductions credit for “design” should be given to the designers of the original vehicles.
      “Limited Edition” is also disingenuous as it suggests they made less than they thought they could sell.

    And, in the photo above, THAT’S a proper mobility scooter!

    “A Proper Pub, too. ”

    A Proper Pub? Looks like they’re all drinking lager or wine. šŸ˜‰

    “No doubt some of you will only need the GBG extract due to your cheating.”

    Oooh, that’s Avalon innit?

    “Oh, and the one-time home of this famous industry.”

    Enfield?

    “I think the handpump is hidden because the staff love being asked for cask covertly like they do in Irish pubs”

    Cheeky buggers. šŸ™‚

    “A half pint of Tayto Rough Cuts for the winner.”

    Too rich for my blood.

    Cheers

    PS – And with that my commenting will be extremely sporadic for the next week or so. My darling wife and I are up to some skulduggery. I’ll (possibly) elaborate some time next week. šŸ™‚

      1. I know nothing about football, and agree with Russ that those toys were made in Enfield, not in this town, so until Bill’s and your extra help I drew a blank. And famous daughter Amy Winehouse came from Enfield, love her.

        I did search the worst haircut winners, and none of the ones that I could see on Wiki were from here, though the list was incomplete.

    That’s a giveaway!

    1. Yes, there is (or was) a pub group of that name, owned by someone called Terry O’Sullivan. They’ve bought pubs off Barracuda and Wetherspoon, and they off-load them from time to time too.

  4. And the answer is;

    Three Wishes in Edgware. Was a Spoons years ago, now an odd mix-mash of Irishness and flags of St George.

    Pat Sharp and Tony Currie born in Edgware, which was home to the industry of fleecing the working classes by way of Green Shield stamps shown on that model. Ha ! Tricked you.

    North-West London aka Middlesex, from Mill Hill to Uxbridge up to Watford truly is a dump, possibly food apart.

    I think I won that.
