A little trade secret. If I can’t find anything that rhymes, I’ll just call it a Top 100 pub. Sorry to shatter your illusions and all that.
Cilgerran rhymes with nothing, except Bobby McFerrin. And he wasn’t in the Masons Arms.
But the rest of the village was.
“Cash only”. Good start.
Really friendly too. I bent down to pick up a 5p and the landlady said “Where’s he gone ?”. Made me feel part of the pub as the only solo drinker in the corner.
Loads of banter about the lack of effort for the Jubilee (“I remember the Coronation”) said one, and relentless personal assaults received I’m good grace.
Oh, and a lovely Mantle. Definitely a Top 100 pub. Honest.
