    Default xmas working hours ..

    tomorrow i wil be driving a bus load of already drunken squaddies to the Altisidora pub in Bishop Burton East Yorkshire for their xmas meal and further drinking ,, its a Marstons real ale pub as i remember .. popular with students from the college next door .. its named after a famous racehorse or something .. anyway they'll be in there for about 5 hours before i return to collect them .. meanwhile i'll be sitting in me bus in a layby with the engine running .. destroying the planet and dressed as Santa Clause .. if i dont get a decent tip i'll be well pissed off .. will be getting more stocks of Owd Roger on me credit card if all else fails .. anyway .. happy xmas ..

    Guess what? Iam drinking it right now. Superb and dangerously drinkable!

    I worked in pub on Xmas day from 12pm to 3pm many years ago. No complaints as I was allowed to drink alcohol while working (usually punters paying me drinks!)

    I'll be open from 12.30 on the big day - til 3pm, when M-I-Laws turkey needs my attention. Great fun - spot the christmas pressie is my game of choice, last years winner was a pair of socks that looked like 2 pints of Guinness. The bloke pulled up his trouser leg to show us, and the locals made sure it didn't come back down again until he left the building!

    it is named after a very famous racehorse, its picture is on the pub sign , I remember going on a brewery trip with some sailors, unfortunately some were so drunk they couldn't get off the bus.

    I used to drink the stuff on draught many years ago, brilliant but dangerous. Even the pub I drank it in has been demolished now.

    I am working over Christmas and will have to remain dry until the 28th

    Roll on Hogmanay

    Tell us, now, how and when
    We may find the bravest men?
