The Scottish GBG entries along the Firth of Forth (of Fife) were very good, pubs for the connoisseur (not the one who likes St Helen brewery taps), but they were a bit quiet.
Not the Crown, which I reached at the Golden Hour of 17:30 after admiring the “beach”,
You’re not far from the town of Raith, famous for its association soccer team Kirkcaldy Rovers FC. Dave will have heard of them.
I reckon you can tell a good pub even before you enter by examining the font in the windows.
And the porcelain in the Gents where I dashed first confirmed my positive impression.
And, OH LOOK, red bench seating ! You could be in Stockport. Everyone seemed to be laughing at something. Probably me.
Another “old mens’ boozer” if you’re Mrs RM, of course, but what’s wrong with that ? Go back to your Cortado Lounge or Brunning & Pricey.
To be honest, with the entire pub seated at the bar it was an effort to get a beer from the lone tall font (Outlaw says my notes, but who cares ?).
Another NBSS 3 I won’t be able to add to What Pub because they expect you to remember what beer you had when you can’t even see the bar, let alone read the pump clip.
