MORE ORNATE LOO STOPS ON THE ORMEAU ROAD

Eurovision night, Belfast.

We walked the length of Ormeau Road, wondering why no-one makes graffiti about Plum Porter rather than politics.

A mere 20 minutes after leaving the Oak Lounge, one of our number needed another comfort break.

Luckily, the Quinno Guide to Belfast told me that the Hatfield House was a large, rambling pub where Mrs RM would be able to nip into the Ladies without being conspicuous,

while I admired the decor.

Always assuming she could find the Ladies of course.

The Hatfield House reminded me of that Whitbread Tut & Shive chain from the mid-90s. all cycles dangling from the ceiling, seven (7) TVs showing different sports no-one was watching (bar a few plastic Scousers),

and a glorious collection of keg, including a rare sighting of Punk. I resisted.

Ormeau Road leaves behind its collection of wine bars and noodle shops and turns a bit grim as you head towards the centre. Except for fans of highly detailed political murals.

At the City Hall, we realised we’d improbably walked 5 miles, and somehow avoided the Cup Final but still with 2 hours before Eurovision.

What to do, hey ?

A tour of the cranes ?

Or another pub ?
