You can call the landlord love but don’t call him Cherie. He oversees a large pub which retains a separate drinking area well away from the restaurant. Six real ales, mainly from the Greene King stable, are available. It was difficult to understand why the ‘Wine of the Week’ was called Senior Citizens Lunch.

This interior of this pub is stripped bare to the floorboards in anticipation of larger numbers over the weekend - or perhaps the odd fight. But why was it so dark? The barmaid was fully attributed.

With the England/Hungary game on show in the smokers marquee, there was plenty of room in the pub. For a change we started talking about politics but the conversation soon turned to barley bollocks. The barmaids on duty, despite being very efficient, did not have all the attributes required by Mengo.

Despite Lauren’s statement that ‘FN looked so pretty at Tom’s wedding’, ROC and KOC were unimpressed and continued to look for shooting stars. Others were captivated by a different sort of heavenly body. The rare guest beer, Timothy Taylor Golden Best, went down well.
