Shown on the right is a sign recently spotted in the window of the Admiral Boscarn pub in Looe, Cornwall. Despite the absence of Sky Sports, it didn’t look remotely appealing – as Beer in the Evening confirms (http://www.beerintheevening.com/pubs/s/27/27108/Admiral_Boscarn/East_Looe) – and so I didn’t venture over the threshold.
The second photo is another sign encountered on my travels, in this case displayed outside the Dolphin in the back streets of Dartmouth, South Devon. I suspect it may be rather tongue-in-cheek.
Saturday night can get quite lively in the Barbican area of Plymouth. In one pub a group of young women came in, obviously on a girls’ night out, and one of them distributed stick-on false beards and moustaches for them to wear. One of them, in a white mini-dress, decided that the best place for the beard was on the front in the manner of a merkin. Stay classy, ladies!
