Our Southern Saunter ends in glamorous Totton.
Hey ! I said glamorous !
Phew. A cat pic to take your mind off the grime.
Is this really Totton. I stayed here in 2017, even enjoyed a Bass (and excellent Chinese takeaway).
But the first Guide pub is, inevitable, a craft based micropub.
“Not another one !”. Yes Brenda, another one. We need places to sell those identikit products of all those thousands of tiny breweries, CAMRA’s crowning achievement.
More font styles than beer styles there, I think.
and left me to pick a beer at random.
I had the Stoke. It’s not from that Stoke. It was OK, just lacked a bit of crispness (2.5). “Why didn’t you get me the Natural Blonde ?” said Mrs RM.
The barman was a NBmanSS 4.5 though. Chatty, charming, chilled. SO chilled he put a fleece on. In April ! Mrs RM sympathised with him, I was shocked.
I knocked him down to a NBmanSS 4 when I realised that “Rock Star” was but the first of a slew of Nickelback tracks played for our delight, but added that 0.5 back when he showed us how to play the beer drinking game on the table. Press “PLAY” now, dear reader.
Sorry about the Nickelback. And the video probably needs a PG-13 rating too.
Anyhow, another one with tricky opening hours in the bag, which leaves this lot in the “South-East”.
With all roads apparently closed forever due to BREXIT, I have NO IDEA how I’m going to get to the Elephant & Hind in Dover.
