    Hopefully we'll get the Oxford/AstraZeneca batch soon which doesn't need defrosting, brewed by our scientists who drink at the Turf Tavern and the Bear - what's not to like?

    Indeed. Maison Bozzer's end of terrace ahead, towpath entrance at right. With his Labour MP up the road. Perhaps that's the real reason why he sold up.
