Storm Hannah Haircut

28/04/2019 Leave a comment

Storm Hannah rolled in overnight into Saturday 27 April 2019. We had had a severe wind warning from The Met Office, so I though it would be best to get an emergency haircut else we hair would blow around. Anyway it was rather damp and blowy at the bus stop.



It may look nice but I think that’s just the camera on the iPhone. It was rather chilly I can tell you.


Standard Bacon Roll and medium Cappuccino at Costa Coffee soon sorted that out.  And on Saturdays Just Men (ladies accepted also) opens about 07:45. First in first out.


Missed the 50 to Newport by two minutes but as they are every fifteen minutes it wasn’t too bad. Strangely I was the only one on the bus all the way to Newport.


First stop was the Queens Hotel but as the only real guest ale was Son of a Bitch by Bull Mastiff, I walked in and straight back out. Plan B was The John Wallace Linton around the corner.  A pint of JHB by Oakham Ales with 50p off from a CAMRA voucher.


Moving on to the Pen and Wig on Stow Hill opposite a Church and it’s packed at 10:10 despite opening at 10:00


My first tasting from Team Toxic, Gazza and Sue and it’s a good ‘un. Same it was in a Brains glass.



Another pint, this time from Cold Black Label aka Brecon Brewing and it’s on to The Harbour Fish Bar for a tray of Chips. By the way it’s nowhere a Harbour and if it’s close to anything it’s Newport Railway Station. Best Chips in Newport by the way.




By the way the way in Newport is better now. Post Chips visit to The Tiny Rebel Bar Newport.  In to the corner next to the power sockets. It was rather full in there.





And that was me done for another Saturday.
