MORE MILTON MAGIC AT THE QUEEN EDITH

With Dad comfortable back home in his armchair watching “Pointless” (Google it, Americans), I popped back to Addenbrookes to pick up some new pills. The hospital occupies a giant treatment and medical research site (now incorporating Papworth) on the southern edge of Cambridge, in what is pretty much a pub desert.

  Perhaps my longest blog title so far.  Russ will know. And perhaps Simon will do a response to my response to his blog about Cambridge pubs. Of course, it’s custom and practice for pub bloggers to slag off the local pubs of each other’s home towns, unless they’re visiting Stockport, of course. But, as… Continue reading WELL I HOPE BRAPA-MAN WILL REMEMBER, A SOUTHERN CAMRA MAN DON’T NEED HIM AROUND ANYHOW
