That’s the problem with station bars. They’re the first thing you see when you get off the train after a session.
And can you really walk past a pub that has a spare table at the moment if #YouLovePubs ?
ALL THE PUBS IN SHEFFIELD ON FOOT No. 9 – The Sheffield Tap
Why is it that every UK pub garden is kitted out with German brewing livery ? Does it come from the same Wrexham factory that makes Bass mirrors ?
The famous Tap has been packed every time I’ve walked past the station since the 12th, with plenty of those irritating lone drinkers (like me) that occupy a table for four. Pubs much prefer the group of six that makes multiple bookings and then stays at home as it gets a bit nippy.
The service here, again, was exemplary.
“Hello, what are you looking for today ? We have a pale, a bitter, a Plum Por…“
“Plum Porter please”
It was the usual well-kept tap pint, but I regretted it almost immediately. Always drink 3 litres of water between every half pint, folks.
I’ve had enough of gardens; I want to go inside where it’s warm and cosy and I can hear conversations about “watching Modern Family again” without straining.
I want to see people in suits queueing at a bar to buy their own pint, and spill it on the way back to their table.
And I want it NOW.
