Manchester looks gorgeous on3D Google Maps, doesn’t it ?
with added art on the wall,
but you know by now I never stick to a plan, and wandered aimlessly down to what seems to be ANgel Meadow, the newest and least convincing of Manchester’s quarters.
But it has a GBG pub I only seem to visit every 5 years, and why not ?
On Boxing Day 2013 I enjoyed piano and French onion soup (not in the same bowl) post City v Palace (1-0, Dzeko); back in 2019 our Old Codgers were divided on its merits. I like division.
And I like a beer range that’s not too big, not too small, not too obscure.
I had the Twisted Wheel; so did several other folk the half hour I was there. Par for the Angel, it was NBSS 3.5 or better, with this one having the benefit of murk.
And music, from an unnamed pianist whose work you can enjoy be pressing “PLAY” now. NOW !
Pretty much all cask or Krombacher, which is good. Certainly the busiest cask pub (bar cask) I’d seen in a month.
Peculiar, hard to define, but warm and cosy. Up there with the H & H and City Arms as my favourite Manc pub. The piano really softens a pub. Mrs RM loved that on her visit.
They don’t like Londoners here though;
Sorry, Brentford is Middlesex, not London, isn’t it ?
