Seven of Nine Money Off

15/09/2019 Leave a comment

Cool mornings, hot daytimes and early sunsets, the joy of September. I hadn’t been to Penarth since May 2019 and this return had The Penarth Picnic. They closed the main street and got a whole load of food vans in. Spoons in the form of the Bears Head where the Picnic messed up their deliveries, however there was no problem with my Bacon Roll. Crafty Devils Penarth Cellar where the ales are still fine but now, they have WiFi. The Golden Lion, my favourite back street boozer. A huge tray of chips from the Plassey Fish bar and a melty finish in the ever excellent Penarth Bottle Shop. I acquired two books of Wetherspoon money off vouchers too and it was legit. A day for the memories.

Autumn (The Fall) hit’s the beautiful Lower Rhymney Valley with only the first day as an Indian Summer. Cardiff where only Wetherspoons have sensible opening times (says me). Ending up in The Head of Steam where the live Untappd feed is only upstairs now. Belgian low alcohol ales and it is as good as the full fat. Power and USB sockets all over. It didn’t rain.

From an Ancient Book I took a clue, well actually it was Retired Martin’s Blog again. Happening to already being in Hereford, home of the wonderful Hereford Beer House It was just a couple of taps on The Transport For Wales Rail app and I was on my way.

Hereford Railway Station. A ten minute walk from Wetherspoons

Yes despite being in England, Hereford Station is run by Transport for Wales. You have to feel sorry for them.

Transport for Wales Class 175 DMU
Still in Arriva Trains Wales Colours

However I got a seat and the aircon was working unlike the journey back.

Ludlow Railway Station

Not the largest of Railway Stations but at least it had a carpark. It’s on the edge of town. Across the road from Tesco and Aldi.

The Ludlow Brewery next to Ludlow Railway Station.
Drinking already in progress at 10:23

I had no idea that there was a Brewery next to the station and that it was open from 10:00. Twattery already in progress, always a good sign.

Nicely cool inside, great welcome, fast non captive portal WiFi and the toilets are clean. Marked down for a return visit. An excellent fine. Plenty of merch too.

Ludlow Brewery Opening Times

Handily it’s open seven days a week. Anyway onward.

The Rose and Crown. Ludlow Town Centre.

The Rose and Crown, an Old School Real Ale Pub in the town centre. A couple pints of cask and some Friday lunch. Ham, Eggs and Chips obvs.

Great Pub, so so WiFi.

The Church Inn just around the corner. More of a Gastropub and it may be The Ludlow Brewery Tap?

Back to The Ludlow Brewery as the station has no waiting room or toilets for that matter.

The start of the journey back to Hereford

A packed two carriage Class 150, no aircon but I did get a seat. The tunnel was the coolest part of the journey back.
