    Default Who's off to the pub tomorrow?

    So the time has come and pubs can open tomorrow - albeit under the "new normal" rules.

    Who can't wait and will be going tomorrow?

    I will keep my powder dry for a bit yet. I don't want my pub visit to be more like a military exercise so I will hang on and see how the dust settles.

    Was thinking i would be in at 9am but queuing for toilets, etc etc - saving it for midweek instead.

    Just ranted my thoughts here


    I might have a wander round the town tomorrow afternoon just to see what's occurring, might have a pint or three if it looks OK.
    Drink drink, whoever you may be,
    we are the drunk and disorderly,
    and we’ll drink more beer wherever we may be,
    and we’ll meet you all in a pub said he.

    Opening time here, which is given praise by CAMRA with inclusion in their "prestigious guide". Although described as "a pleasant Victorian local", the pub itself is 16th century, It's just the front half and frontage that's Victorian.

    Default In the pub again

    Just got back from the Gardeners Rest. Only three cask ales on, and two of them "blonde" or "gold", which is code for bland in my book, but the third was Empire West Coast Pale 4.3%, which could have been awful, but turned out to have a nice bitter finish and I had three pints. It's good to be back.

    On checking times, it appears I drank three pints in a little short of three hours, but that must be quite a bit quicker than I've been drinking at home, as I'm not used to feeling quite this pissed (and that includes what I consumed yesterday - for anaesthetic purposes - during & after Luton Town's shocking performance against Reading, if performance is the right word).

    Devon & Cornwall Police said they (and Dorset) would be limiting pub visits to 2 hours, when told "er that's not in the guidelines" they swiftly retracted the tweet and issued some weasel words denying they'd said it.

    Likely to be a damp squib anyway:

    "However, there are signs that some people will be reluctant to return. Pollsters Ipsos-Mori said 60% of the 1,000 people they spoke to said they would be uncomfortable going to a bar or restaurant". (BBC)
    I've copied the above from the other thread for ease of reference.

    I won't be going to the pub on Saturday, but I'm going to try the Gardeners Rest on Sunday. They're opening this weekend for shareholders only (plus family and close friends), then using the lessons learned to make any necessary adjustments before re-opening on Wednesday to the general public. Luckily I'm a shareholder, so I reckon it needs to be done.
