A third and hopefully final ticking trip to “saucy St. Andrews“. No, the TIC doesn’t actually call it that put “frightfully upmarket” wouldn’t work well as a slogan. We arrived just before the 150th Golf Open, thereby annoying those annoying Americans who shout “In the hole !” before every shot (instead getting a Yank who… Continue reading A SAUNTER IN ST.

Keep right on to the end of the road (just don’t expect cask)
I opted for the Royal George as a nightcap to my evening of Brummie GBG ticking. Some attractive housing estates on the way to St Andrews, and a mystery pub for Life After Football to identify. A mere sliced clearance behind the Railway Stand, not that our next pub celebrates any such cloggers; Was I… Continue reading Keep right on to the end of the road (just don’t expect cask)
SWITCHING TO KEG IN ST ANDREWS
You left me in Anstruther with a tummy full of chips and GBG-pub coke and 20 minutes till the bus back to St Andrews. Could I find any real ale in the Boathouse “Beer & Wine Bar”. Yes, three of them. They could surely have lent one of those barrels to the Ship. This is… Continue reading SWITCHING TO KEG IN ST ANDREWS
THE REDEMPTION OF ST ANDREWS

It was a joy to be alive, a joy to not be in Maidenhead, a joy to be visiting my third GBG pub in St Andrews at 11:54am. Yes folks, three before noon. Paul… Continue reading THE REDEMPTION OF ST ANDREWS
ALL THAT GLITTERS….
Might as well keep going; I want Russ to have something to correct read when he gets home. If I ever get to the end of the Scottish trip, there’s eight Black Country pubs and nine in the Peak District to write up. One of them a new classic. No classics at St Andrews,… Continue reading ALL THAT GLITTERS….
ST ANDREWS – BRIDGE OVER TROUBLED CASK
Another big day dawned on the Sunday, as I finally made an emotional return to St Andrews for the first time since 1998. No ticks then as I was driving Mrs RM on a flying visit from Aberdour, but three (yes, 3) new pubs today. Beeching has a lot to answer for, but you… Continue reading ST ANDREWS – BRIDGE OVER TROUBLED CASK
