An Almost Pub Review

I intended to write a pub review today. I really did. However, this day has not gone according to plan. Actually, this whole week hasn’t been much fun. Thank goodness it’s Friday.

When I sat down to write the pub review a thought struck me. Instead of writing a review, why not go to a pub. So folks, that’s my plan. Now I need to decide. Is it a beer or cider night?

What’s that, Barkeep?


Okay, I’ll have both. 


Photos taken on a trip to Windsor Castle Pub in 2012. Not sure what pub or pubs I’ll wander into tonight. Have a great weekend!

      I didn’t over do it. The two blokes at the table next to us did. One asked me where he was and I said the pub’s name. he meant what city was he in. His buddy took him home after that. I hope they got their safely.

    Brings back fond memories of my time in Arundel.

  12. Meanderer says:

    Those two drinks together would make what’s known as a ‘Snakebite’ which I understand some pubs refuse to serve!

    I hope you had a good evening!

    • TBM says:

      I’ve had a snakebite in the States, but haven’t ordered one in a pub. Interesting that some refuse to serve it. I wonder why.

      • Meanderer says:

        I did an internet search and discovered a couple of different reasons. Firstly, landlords don’t like to serve younger customers because of its intoxicating qualities 😉 Secondly, apparently it can be illegal due to the measures involved. There are rules which state how much of each drink can be poured into a glass. It seems quite complicated!

      • TBM says:

        Goodness, am I breaking the law in my own home 😉 Thanks so much for looking into it. You’re the best!

  13. IsobelandCat says:

    Hope it was good, whichever one you went to. 🙂

  14. Sorry you had a lousy week and hope this one’s a LOT better.

    Ha ha … a smoother Lager is fine at this end.

    Going to a pub sounds like the better option!
