Photo-a-Day (Sunday, 21st July, 2019)
Its music night
Great photo Ron, long time since I had a pint in there. I can just imagine you on the scrubbing board.
So good to see the pub has been rescued from demolition at such a grand age. Great for the people who live nearby I imagine...
I am very surprised that this pub has not closed like a lot of local pubs have. It must get quite a lot of custom to keep it afloat.
Those tiny windows. It must be very dark inside, the very reason I wouldn't like to live in a cottage regardless of how picturesque it is. Small windows owing to the high cost of glass in those days.
My friend Tom's local.
been three times bad ale
Anne you can what it looks like on the inside on this video
All ale's bad. (alcohol full stop!)
I'm pleased the distinction is made between music and karaoke.
Ah! but then you haven't experienced my haunting rendition of ' Last Train to San Fernando ' have you Poet ?, or better still, my explosive interpretation of ' Mule Train ' , with percussive accompaniment courtesy of a handy McEwans beer tray coming into contact with mI yed ?.............or then again, maybe you have.
Ozy, when is the video coming out? I wouldn’t want miss the Bee-di-bee-di-bom-bom to San Fernando and the sight of you Clippity- clopping along with head banging accompaniment will be well worth sacrificing a few Beer Tokens for!
Astonishing Ozy, though after the fifth encore I thought you got a bit flat.
If you were wearing buckskins and a Davy Crockett hat and doing a shoeshuffle dance it would have been believable Ozy.
Ozy, in the film "Wish You Were Here", one of the actors, (Victoria Wood's ex-husband Geoffrey Durham), actually sings "Mule Train" whilst hitting himself over the head with a tin tray!
Shane Macgowan was a good 'n too. Hardly ever touched a drop either Jimmy. All down to percussion.
