Mrs RM really is an extraordinary human being. Just being able to make it back up Whitehouse hill deserves an award, but she’s also just alerted me to this post tonight on Wonderful Walkley;
Sadly, I’d just come back from that recycling centre and not seen anything except a huge pile of cardboard that the vegan lefties round here are too weak to fold up and put it in the bin.
But I was thankful to Mrs RM for her concern for my sensibilities, and for instructing me to stop at the a cafe-cum-micro on our Tuesday stroll through Bole Hill and Crookes towards the Rutland Hotel, where my treasured in-laws will be spending TWO (2) weeks this summer. I may be out that fortnight.
I wasn’t keen on stopping, but “That looks good” is code for “I need a wee” and you know better than to get in the way of Mrs RM and a powder room, I can tell you.
So here’s ALL THE PUBS IN SHEFFIELD ON FOOT No.8 – The Early Bar, Crookes
The chatty bloke in the Closed Shop had praised this place, and though there’s only a few tables on the pavement it was cosy and spacious.
I followed the BRAPA rule, and picked a table reserved for a famous TV chef with a view inside.
“Lifted” by The Lighthouse Family was the soundtrack, Dortmunder Union seemed to be the beer of choice, and why not ? But the chap on the high table made our decision for us;
“You got Pale Rider back on ? It’s lovely.”
ALWAYS have what the locals have. And a huge piece of yummy carrot cake and flat white.
“Mmm, that’s the best beer so far“, said Mrs RM, skilfully swapping my beer for her coffee, which was equally high quality. By “so far” I assume she meant since 12/4 rather than that morning.
“Listen to your wife !” she demanded, making it sound like there was a choice.
A high quality place I bet we stop at again soon.
Meanwhile, the wait to re-acquaint myself with the Noah’s Ark goes on…
