    It is next door to the Registry office, so I will let you guess how long it took me to get there.

    I am sure there are some in-law jokes to be made here, but I shall refrain.

    No of course he didn't - some things are just more important than pubs. Bristol City were at home to Wolves that evening.

    Good, those are probably best left to your wife.

    No oddly, only my mother turned up late for the wedding , no surprise to anyone who knows her.

    We then strolled to a local'ish venue for the reception, but stopped for a few pints on the way and needed somewhere small person friendly (another reason to hate Wetherspoons).

    Hey Conrad..

    I was using Google street view to have a look at The Commerical Rooms in Bristol and I came across smallish pub called The John Cabot. Looks closed to me.

    Whatever happened to it?

    Ah yes, it was the John Cabot for about a year, then closed for ages. I only went there once, during an England v West Indies Test Match - I asked if they could put it on one of the numerous screen - they refused - I went over the road to Walkabout. I wonder why they didn't last!!

    I have a feeling the venue has now reopened and is called bsb, which is really unhelpful because there is another totally unrelated bsb less than a quarter of a mile away. I shall have to go and check that on my way to the office tomorrow.

    Well got that one sorted now, renamed it to BSB and added a new photo. Probably should've dealt with that before given I pass it fairly often!


    Thanks for the nudge on that one!!
