Cheaper Petrol and Beer

06 January 2023

Back in the Beano saddle for 2023. The Beer House is only open on the Saturday (10% off for tagging them on Social Media), so it’s more of the Beer In Hand and The Orange Tree. Lots of Daily Tech News Show #CES2023 coverage on the way up.

Nice lot of space in the Carpark

And just across the road, a sign that I shouldn’t have filled up before I left. 2023 is going to be one of those years.

However 149.9 a litre in Pontypridd

Things started to look up when I was given an app voucher for a hot drink in Costa Coffee tomorrow.

I’m the Mayor too

The Town Centre and on the way to The Kings Fee (Wetherspoon)

99p a Pint for Guest Ales. Helps with the Post Christmas spending.

Not Here in Wales

Moving on to The Orange Tree, in need of Cobs.

A lot of history around
A Great Pubby Pub

Might, actually completely over did it with two cobs.

Cheese and Onion & Ham Salad

Opens at 12:00, seven days a week. Classic Pub.

This really is a lot of odds and stuff. Christmas lights, me burbling on, beer, chips and festive lights. The true spirit of Beanoing.

£2.50 for the quality Cob

England and Wales

Starting without my wake up coffee is mainly a sign of my age. However, Pro Plus a half hour before I leave to keep me on my A game. Costa then the Kings Fee for the Wales match. West Midlands craft cans but sadly no Luxury, Festive Mince Pies. Wales were poor and Iran deserved to win. The Orange Tree is a must visit and the £2.50 cobs are excellent. I’m supporting Senegal now.

Mostly about the Wales result

The mb12 Journal – Monmouth November 2022

Various odds from this Autumn mini beano. Thoughts, tech, beer and food. Casual and unrehearsed. And back to Monmouth but just for 24 hours. Despite the fact I said it wasn’t for for, mainly due to the lack of craft ale. It’s a return because it is close, easily accessible and Spoons open at 07:00 (bar opens at 09:00).  

A frosty start. Two hot water bottles on the dash. Coffee and a Luxury Festive Mince Pie to start in The Kings Head. No problems with the egg supply in Spoons. Good quality Full English with extra butter. 6.5/10 and I’m a hard marker. 

Hazy Beers that weren’t and should have sat long in the cellar and a Bottle of Boss that was actually quite good. I watched the Rugby and Wales lost.

Asking questions, yes you can walk into a Premier Inn for breakfast if you aren’t staying there. However, only if they have enough space and it will be more expensive than booked on line. So the overall rating for The Premier Inn All you can eat is 8/10. What would I improve. Bigger plates please.

To sum up. Wetherspoons good. Premier Inn very good. Slightly different products and different accessibility. However Bacon. 

Compaing Full Englishes

Of Apple and Eggs

Mostly Apple kit.  A Beano where you want to start early and review Full English. Yes, The Kings Head have Eggs and extra butter is no problem. I had to defrost the car and it was only just getting light as I arrived. Two Festive Ales on at The Kings Head and at £2.29 a Pint, that’s not too shabby. Two of the regional ales and I didn’t move on. I even saw a bit of the Rugby. Wales lost.

Lots of odds, video of food containers without commentary, tech beer and despite what I said, lighting.

The art of the leaving time, spending my Beanos, to the second at the Regal, so good to be back at the Pelican, wet and windy and fast Premier Inn WiFi

#mb02 2021 Prelude

The end of August and the Bank Holiday weekend and I’m only on #mb02. Cooler morning but Summer is most certainly back. Hereford, Ludlow and Worcester and many Fine Ales. Grey but dry. It was an early morning yesterday.

Learning lessons about making Coffee at Michaelwood Services. Spotting rain that wasn’t forecast. Emergency Bacon and Coffee in The Crown – Worcester. Life is good.
