It’s not all pubs on this site, you know. Sometimes you get weird street art, or Sam Smiths windows or industrial architecture. And today it’s breakfast recommendations. Actually brunch, as I’d already had excellent coffee and banana cake from Albies on Snig Hill. We arranged to meet James at the Depot Bakery, the top brunch… Continue reading BREAKFAST IN SHEFFIELD
Especially for Paul Mudge of Stafford, here’s the evidence that Sam Smith’s Sheffield star is back with a bang. Mrs RM and I tipped up at 10.42pm, the latest I’ve been in a pub for a while. No sense of “You’re a bit close to last orders” like I get in some pubs at 10.30.… Continue reading THE BROWN BEAR IS BACK

The one above was a bit coy, obviously waiting for Pub Curmudgeon as I discussed opening time fails with Pubmeister in Levenshulme’s Blue Bell. A second trip to Levy in quick… Continue reading 2018 PUB CAT CONVENTION IN LEVENSHULME
That’s supposed to rhyme, by the way. Finally in Altrincham, and just to prove we do visit pubs that aren’t in the Beer Guide, we visited Sam Smiths’ Malt Shovels. Mainly because it gave us an excuse to admire the Alty treasure that is the “Informed Solutions of Manchester” HQ. And the equally wonderful duo… Continue reading SUCCUMBING TO SAM IN ALTRINCHAM
Not a shallow attempt to get a view from the Paisley Pub Prince, but a report on a cheap pint of keg in one of my long-term bucket list pubs*. Obviously you’ll want to know the important details of tonight’s trip to Leeds, like what Simon was wearing under his BRAPA mac, and how… Continue reading THE DUNCAN !!!
