Time for a culinary special.
I lived it up on Sunday night in the Ashford Travelodge. £24. Same price as the new one in Sandwich, but who would choose Sandwich over Ashford. ?
Well, anyone wanting to avoid spending a night in non-GBG pubs. I spent half an hour on What Pub looking for a back street Sheps boozer in Ashford and gave up.
The next morning, I thought I’d find something nice to say about the town, because I’m nice like that.
Here’s the bad bit.
And here’s the surprisingly good bits;
It’s a bit underpubbed, the only GBG entry I’ve done is one of the more “earthy” Spoons, which I wasn’t going in for breakfast.
Not when there was a brand new Cypriot cafe just behind the John Wallis. Really friendly, dead cheap.
While in Ashford, rest awhile amidst its hidden charms. Such as street names as weird as those in Whitwick,
and a tank in the shopping centre. Fortunately, Maidstone has never invaded so it hasn’t been used (yet).
Lots of culture, too, and any George Michael tribute act that trades on his generosity is OK with me.
You’ve missed George though. In every sense.
