    The old man Quinn died a few years ago. The family were from Longford hence the paint.

    Sad - I think this must have been the old bloke who served me. The thing about the pub is that it was - I think - a loved business, but terribly lacking in funds. With money spent it could be a lovely place, but even the stonework is starting to crumble.

    The son used to always be there, he could eat you without salt if he was in a humour.

    In "Wails", It will be 10 days before we can visit a pub Outside! No mention yet of the date to go Inside! It will be like the old Welsh Sundays when to get a pint you had to cross into England. Will I do so?? Table service only, name and phone no. to track me, maybe having my temperature taken. Limited visit time. Having to book in advance. Oh, and of course I will have to drive because Public Transport for essential workers only!
    Walking three minutes to The Bridge End in Ruabon to take out two cask beers seems far more attractive, and i am still doing my bit to support the pub trade.

    The top row of the Yorkshire colour chart should give pub designers more interesting ideas than battleship grey.

    There are many diseases,
    that strike people's kneeses,
    Covid19! is one by name
    It comes from the East
    Packed in bladders of yeast
    So the Chinese must take half the blame.

    Apologies to Spike Milligan

    Brains have announced a number of their pubs will not reopen, I don't know if that includes the 40 they intend to flog off or if it's more pubs.
