    I found it bit tedious and long-winded I'm afraid. It's a bit too like H G Wells for me. I also like the edit facility, facility as as long as you'd spot your mistakes early on and can correct them in good time. But I see there is scope for abuse though.

    Thank you Roger for 'the usual Jeremy Kyle Show regulars that often blight ‘Spoons' in The Coronation Hall (JD Wetherspoon) I will probably use that line some time.

    You're welcome. I probably subliminally stole it from somewhere else myself!

    PSM has a line in his review of The Wheatsheaf which I like:

    "A trip to the toilets saw the Gents signposted as ‘Barrow Boys’ and the Ladies as ‘Milk Maids’, which is almost worth taking a point off for"

    I remember a Spoons review on the other site comparing it to the Green Room of said show. A review of the Opera House stated that as it was Tunbridge Wells you get a better class of deadbeat.

    Just came across this gem from Soupy about the Organ Grinder, reviewed post PuG meet-up:

    There are lots of old photos on the walls, along with some posters and a large 'Blue Monkey' ape, which confused a couple of the PG crowd, who thought it was a mirror

    Definitely not me, as Mrs a&h constantly compares me to a silverback gorilla.

    Soupy can bask in the glory - as I'm going through Nottingham en route to adding my own t'uppence worth 18 months too late, I came across this gem from the Olde Trip to Jerusalem:

    with the fondness we have incorrectly using ‘Ye’ for ‘the’ and adding the extra ‘e’ in words to give some sort of pedigree, the old became olde – funny, why didn’t they didn’t stick an ‘e’ on the end of Trip?
