Three Years And A Republic

20/06/2021 Leave a comment

Really three years since my last visit to Barry? Well Fourysquare and Swarm can’t be wrong. The Sir Sam was full of people having their Saturday Breakfast and figuring out how to use The Spoons App. Which in my opinion isn’t difficult but it is rather buggy. Also it’s had the Full FTTC upgrade so the Saturday Wrap wasn’t tethered. The real reason for the visit was to have a look at Craft Republic. Impressions, close to the Barry Railway Station, pleasant ambience, friendly staff and a great selection of beers and other alcoholic drinks. Downside, the WiFi was down and the ThreeUK reception was marginal. However, all in all, a must visit.

Don’t Sit On The Power Switch

Don’t Sit On The Power Switch, if you are watching Wales in the Euros and it’s still the first half. I did and the projector went off. The staff and punters in Crafty Devil’s Penarth Cellar were not amused. I wasn’t too happy either. However it was a great sunny day. All of my drinks were uniques and Spoons (The Bears Head) had an excellent selection of cask ales. Chips and a Class 769 to take me there. Wales drew.

Garden – June 2021

06/06/2021 Leave a comment

Where April started, May completed and it was a cold wash out as well. June has actually introduced Summer and I find myself hoping for more overnight rain. So due to May, everything planted out is at least two weeks behind. The earlies are just showing the first signs of flowering and it’s out with the watering can every morning to keep things going.  The first of the bush tomatoes were planted out ten minutes before the video was taken and the Cucumbers will be following then spoon. The weeds in the garden are a constant headache and I’m pulling them up every night, not that you can tell.


Cardiff Like Newport

Summer and a pleasant train journey into Cardiff. However The Queen Street Costa Coffee doesn’t open until 08:00 on a Saturday.  Things aren’t back to normal at all. Also, the cask selection in The Gatekeeper is minimal. Thankfully Bubs came to the rescue. The Finest of Ales, The Finest of Staff and some kick arse WiFi. No if I could only get them to open at 07:00 and do Bacon Rolls. You can dream, can’t you?

Belgian Practise Needed

31/05/2021 Leave a comment

Well this video is all over the place. A mixture of poor memory and overdoing it on the finest of Belgian Ales. That and spending way too much time in The Tripel B Belgian Cafe. However very good times and The Bacon Baguette was first class. Finishing off in The Plough was awesome put I was far too intoxicated and sleepy.


The Barman Calls His Mother Dude

The first Mini Beano after the 2021 lockdown. Worcester after a M40 stop at Michaelwood North. Lots of Coffee and Bacon and AM drizzle.  Everyone and their mother gets called Dude in the Hop Lords. A new craft bar and warm afternoon sun. Life is looking much better.
