HOW DID I END UP IN SWINDON SPOONS ?

The truth is out there (not THERE) and the truth MUST be told.

With all of Swindon’s options, I somehow ended up in the Spoons.

Not in the grotty but loveable GBG occasional Savoy, either, but the shiny Sir Daniel, whoever he was.

Quite what attracted me away from the lure of Swindon Kebabs, who can say,

but there is something alluring about a busy town Spoons (see also: the Dragon, Weston).

Before you sneer, look at this crystal clear Salopian (a rich, cool 3.5) and consider how often beer in Spoons is unexpectedly good.

The food is rarely that good, and I promised myself years ago I’d never have one of their ping curries.

Oh dear.

Still, at least I resisted the salted caramel pudding.

Oh dear, oh dear.

Truly, it was terrific.

    Sometimes good beer is not enough, the venue has to be agreeable as well?

  2. Sir Daniel is is almost certainly (quoting wiki):
    “Sir Daniel Gooch, 1st Baronet (24 August 1816 – 15 October 1889) was an English railway locomotive and transatlantic cable engineer. He was the first Superintendent of Locomotive Engines on the Great Western Railway from 1837 to 1864 and its chairman from 1865 until his death in 1889. Between 1865 and 1885 Gooch was Conservative MP for Cricklade.”
