    ETA is definitely on a roll. From his latest review of The Slug & Lettuce

    A revisit 10 years later found the terrific interior unchanged but ,after a change of hands,a much better ale selection.Gone are the national brands,all brewers are chosen because of their excellence and the chatty landlady told us they always have two dark ales ,one of which will be pokey (on my trip Roosters Scoundrel).

    The Strugglers Inn

    What is 'pokey' BF??

    To be fair I would describe a 7.4% Stout as having some poke.

    So, not that interesting after all.

    E TA left this review about The Thomas Tallis

    I had been trying to visit this one for some time, having heard great things, and my Spem in Allium was definitely rewarded – it was a brilliant visit.

    Good 'un.

    I had to look this one up, but an allium is '...a bulbous plant of a genus that includes the onion and its relatives (e.g. garlic, leek, and chives)'. I think he meant 'alium'. Thank goodness 'Spem' was spelled correctly though...

    Spem in Alium is a choral work by Thomas Tallis. Apparently the phrase in Latin means "hope in any other", or perhaps "there must be a decent pub *somewhere* in this godforsaken hole". (If you read the review that I posted after my visit in 2019, you'll see that my - slightly different but no less fervent - hope was also fulfilled in the Thomas Tallis in Canterbury. Maybe there's something in this religion lark after all.)
