Waiting for a train to Keynsham (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mbZpNYx3Vms) at Bristol Temple Meads station this weekend, we found ourselves wishing that someone would roll the Sheffield Tap concept (http://boakandbailey.com/2010/02/06/i-should-be-on-that-train/) out across the country.

As it is, we went without a pint, not much fancying a light lager or keg bitter in a in plasticky pub/cafe/newsagent, with an atmosphere of oppressive gloom.

Opening a decent pub on the platform at Bristol would be easier said than done, though. Unlike Sheffield, where you can wander onto platform one without a ticket, Temple Meads is locked down tighter than Checkpoint Charlie. They’d have to redesign the whole station around the pub, which, we suspect, is not going to happen.
