A flying visit to Wrexham/Wrecsam, whose latest attempt to join the Hollywood elite in League 2 (Barrow, Sutton, Rochdale) came to a stuttering halt at the weekend, leaving Stockport favourites for automatic promotion. I’m sure Mudgie will be delighted.
I was almost as delighted to finally get the Magic Dragon Tap ticked, though leaving one straggler in the North East Wales section of the GBG (Derby Arms in Llandrillo) took some of the gloss off.
Not quite a case of Mrs RM keeping the engine running, but parking near the centre needed to be a bit “adventurous” on a Friday night.
Still time to take the tourist shots of Wonderful Wrexham (last used by the TIC in 1978, that one).
A few old favourites in the compact town centre, including this joule,
and a Wetherspoons that must be experienced by Ryan Reynolds, whoever he is. Here’s your annual reminder of the North & South Wales Bank.
Perhaps the Magic Dragon lacks the frontage of the Royal Oak,
but it’s more boisterous pub than craft bar, and the staff were as lovely as the Dolphin IPA (NBSS 3.5+).
“Are you a CAMRA member ?” asked the barman, before knocking a few pence off the bill.
Well I was, but haven’t us life members been excommunicated for being a drain on the campaign or something ?
