If you’re getting bored of Sussex, spare a thought for me; I’ve spent 27% of my life in B&Bs there this year, which sounds like a BRAPA stat. Nearly done, and Worthing never disappoints. One way or the other. More great street art for you near the station, anyway. Unless you’re a member of the… Continue reading WET WET WORTHING
As you’ll know by now, I never miss a chance of squeezing a Skids song title in , even in an area as tranquil as Salisbury Plain. This is more “Out of Town” than “Sweet Suburbia“. As I must have said before, I have a cousin in Pewsey, but as I’d already had my tea… Continue reading INTO THE (PEWSEY MICRO PUB) VALLEY
You may find this hard to believe but I was nearly 10 before I saw the seaside, a combination of fear of a flat earth, and horse and traps on a go slow on the A10 making journeys from Waterbeach to Hunstanton or Cromer impractical. Nowadays, nearly all the new entries seem to pepper the… Continue reading OH, THOSE WACKY MICRO PUB NAMES !

Never mind the pubs, it’s a great town for the walker. Just look at those contours above. Good… Continue reading DOVER CHILDREN INTRODUCED TO JOYS OF PICKLED EGGS
The best thing about Kent pubs is they’re dotted along the coast at regular intervals. So 5 minutes from Deal and I was in Walmer, and a short hop from another new micro. Is it possible that Walmer is more than The Berry ? SPOILER: YES Looking at that map I do wonder if I’d… Continue reading ANOTHER SMASHING WALMER PUB
Where am I up to ? Oh yes, micro pubs in Kent. Mrs RM is there already, clearing out my in-laws loft. If she finds any Fremlin mirrors up there I’ll let you know. “You know retiredmartin, I really miss your reports on micros” Oddly, I don’t recall Dick and Dave saying that last week. … Continue reading ANOTHER TWIRL, ANOTHER THANET (MICRO PUB)
A journey of 937 miles starts with a single 45 minute hold-up on the A14, and a mammoth series of posts on the North-East* starts at unheralded Morpeth. I’m not suggesting Mrs RM is only useful in supporting my pub going, but her six month stint at Scottish Borders Council has been instrumental in… Continue reading MURKY & MAGNIFICENT IN MORPETH
