Only 8 more days and we can confine “Guess the Pub” to the dustbin of blog history. At least until the tricky Carluke variant (only tackled by adding Buckfast to the vaccine) comes along, anyway.
I’m staying local today, barely 20 minutes from home. Duncan will be able to identify the location from my drone shot; he saw Wales play here in 2001. Ah, but which Wales ?
The music clue to location is a doozy, as they say in Duisburg.
The most famous resident here was a world champion, with a name exactly comprised from the surnames of two of the most iconic Americans of recent decades. And a card seller.
The pub, one of four in the village, looks like it should be in the GBG but I’ve never been here. Chief Pubs Galore Maps Corrector Will may have been, who knows ?
These photos come from Google, which specialises in a) blurry pictures folk in Halloween costumes, b) blurry pictures of folk raising a pint of Fosters and saying “Cheers”, and c) Crystal clear photos of pie and chips.
Our mystery pub specialises in chips and gravy, enhanced by Hendos.
Really, what more could you possibly want ? Well, What Pub reckons they sell a beer from North Warwickshire, possibly even a 2017 Champion Beer of Britain.
Happy birthday to you too !
