21st February 2020 Our maiden trip in the new campervan, provisionally called Simon, and a 3 hour slog round the M25 to Hook. It’s my mother in law and her twin sister’s 80th, so why not pick a Home Counties gastropub to celebrate. If I reach 80 and haven’t completed the GBG I’m in big… Continue reading HOOKED IN
Oh grief, I’ve just read that cartoon. Too late to stop now. I was hoping Mrs RM would blog about the Winning Post in Winkfield, but she said she “can’t be bothered“. It’s a shame, as she overhears more than I do. She’s let me use her photo, though. Apparently the one on the left… Continue reading “IS TARA COMING TO THE HUNT ?”

It’s a dump that exists only to make Slough look good, which it… Continue reading ESCAPING MAIDENHEAD INTACT
If you don’t blow your own trumpet (so to speak) don’t assume someone else will do it for you. Duncan IS pub ticking royalty. It was obvious the Royal Borough of Windsor was expecting the Pubmeister and had taken precautions to prevent him being mobbed in the Corner House. Learning our lessons from St Albans, I… Continue reading PUB ROYALTY IN WINDSOR
As I often say, one of the objectives of this site is to guide our foreign tourists to places they wouldn’t normally dream of visiting. Like Stockport. Or Windsor. A second-rate Slough I hear you cry. And indeed, the UK’s top place to work is a hard act for Windsor to compete with. But Windsor… Continue reading CORNER HOUSE GIVES WINDSOR’S YANKS WHAT THEY WANT
