SAVING SHEFFIELD SPOONS

Onto Tuesday morning, I think. At least it was THIS Tuesday.

Anyway, it’s a day with a “y” in it and the house looks like THIS,

and I need to get somewhere uncluttered and clean and loveable.

Like a Spoons.

The Francis Newton was heaving on the Glorious 12th, the largest Spoons garden in town overwhelmed with students and medics from Sheffield General.

But at 10.30 on a drizzly Tuesday, it’s just the hardcore folk who love Spoons, and/or want a £3.79 cooked breakfast. Which is the same thing.

I’m here to save cask, like this cute Stancil Ginger winningly served in a Thatchers glass which was superbly crisp and tasty (3.5).

A chap who resembled a vegan Peter Hook told his mate, who resembled a vegetarian Pete Doherty, that “people are a landscape” and how he’d had his Shredded Wheat “Just the one!”.

It’s OK, but as BRAPA tells us it’s not the same, and as I nip in for the loo visit that confirmed my entry in ALL THE PUBS IN SHEFFIELD ON FOOT No. 12 – The Francis Newton,

I realised how much I’m looking forward to the 17th.

The beer inside will taste even better inside.

      1. Been to most of them. The Craven Arms in Appletreewick (App’trick to those in the know) will always be a favourite after many merry afternoons in the days before austerity when there was a bus service from Ilkley to App’trick.

    Holy guacamole!

    “Like a Spoons.”

    I was going to suggest your son’s house but that would probably only tick off two of the three criteria. 😉

    “But at 10.30 on a drizzly Tuesday, it’s just the hardcore folk who love Spoons,”

    Not everyone is either retired and/or keeping to a student schedule. 😉

    “It’s OK, but as BRAPA tells us it’s not the same, ”

    Pfft. For BRAPA, every time he goes out it kinda should be the same, for him. 🙂

    “I realised how much I’m looking forward to the 17th.”

    What happened to the yellow paint in the photo above? Is that a crime scene?

    “The beer inside will taste even better inside.”

    A bit too deep for me this early in the day.

    Cheers

    PS – Wish me luck! Off to get my first jab in about 2 hours.
