Ticking in singles now, with an ultra-rare canalside pub in the Vale of Belvoir, whose main claim to fame is its pronunciation.
That’s always the way; you visit a place and the least expected pub gets in the Guide 6 months later.
Because I’ve brought the sunshine with me, this looks gorgeous on the approach.
Look how tall I am !
But let’s be honest, it’s an unashamed family diner.
Search in vain for the bench seating.
On the other hand, it’s unfussy; no “Have you a reservation ?” or “Will you be dining with us ?”.
Just a cheerful welcome and a well-served XB. Cool, foamy and dry, one of the best pints of Bateman’s for some time.
You can tell a good pint by 3 things;
the lacings, the scummy head,
and whether there’s CAMRA discount. I can’t confirm the latter.
Latin birds too, shame about the Ed Sheeran covers.
