One more day of Stafford posts from last Thursday, then I can bring you November highlights AND a little series of posts
moaning celebrating the detail in the new GBG.
Bridgewood House used to be college digs, and is attached to what used to be a Hogshead.
Despite those setbacks, it’s got clean, simple rooms and for £34 including breakfast (with bacon butty !) is hard to beat.
As was the stroll through the back streets to the Railway Inn.
Paul talks about this one as much as Life After Football does that Coalville boozer, and I challenge you to keep walking (if you do you’ll end up on the railway line, so not advised).
I walked in to find Paul ordering the Bass.
“There’s no Bass on, can’t get it.“
Now this is war, how come Life After Football finds foaming pints in every social club in the next county ?
Oh, well, Landlord will have to do.
It’s a very good drop of Landlord, too, cool and crisp, but it’s the pub that’s the star.
Particularly if you get the table with the view of the fire.
OK, a bit blokey, reminiscent of the Stile in Wolves, with lots of talk of “giving Carrick his fair due“.
Of course it’s not in the GBG, hasn’t been for years, and some folk expect rather different furnishing to this in 2021.
The Railway will do for me though, particularly when they get the Bass back.
