So PIA got back to me with mixed results. The Knights Templar opens at 08:00 on a Sunday but the bar opens at that time. Live Bug in the eye and broken contact. Moor Beer Closed. Kveik. A review of the Firebreak and Wales wants more than Plan B. Christmas shaky.

The Art of Timing

03/10/2021 Leave a comment

The M4 between the second Servern Crossing and the M5 between the M4 and Gloucester are both unlit, so I’m aimed to leave just as it was getting light. It worked out really well, so I parked up, had a Bacon Roll and Coffee in Costa and still arrived at The Regal (Wetherspoons) Gloucester for 08:00. The pub and the bar opening time.

The Regal quickly filled up both with professional drinkers and Rugby fans. Despite the high positive test result numbers it looks like the Rhonda is only having a marginal effect. Oh and The Regal has a King Kong model as well.

Still raining but the Pelican opened at the dot at 12:00. Awesome Pub, Awesome Ales and an Awesome welcome. New WiFi password as well. Rained a lot as well.

I’ll Take The Long Way There

The 50A due to Costa not opening until 08:00. Confused Autumnal weather with no Hazy Jane shortage in The Larry. Old School but fast WiFi and Cask Ale in the Pen & Wig. And when a Cask is fresh on and the Ale is Fine, well that’s the Way Forward. A large tray od Chips from nowhere near the Sea and then on to Tiny Rebel. Runners going from the Bar to the Brewery. Cask, Keg and a Can whilst going very old school with Tiki Bar TV. A sunny end to the day.

Bear on the Fence

05/09/2021 Leave a comment

Dingle Road is favourite UK Railway Station if for no other reason than the name. Today there was a Teddy Bear on the fence. I liked it. Pubs are much better when you can go to the bar, but I still like contactless payments. And the Plassey Chop Bar is the best value of all my favourite Chippies. Into Crafty Devil’s Penarth Cellar, which the VOG Council is doing it’s best to make unprofitable. I suppose the £6.35 Pint I had there was to make up for it. Still quality Pint. And by that time, I’s had enough. I must be getting old, luckily it was a direct train home.

The Early Republic

22/08/2021 Leave a comment

Rain all day with a Thunderstorm alert. The Great British Summer at it’s very best. I’d forgotten how fast The Sir Samuel Romilly’s (Barry Spoons) WiFi was. So the Saturday Wrap went up in 1080p. Left The Sir Sam at 10:50 hoping to get in The Craft Republic at 11:00. Turns out it is 12:00 that they open. However they have a Steam Railway next door. Returned to The Sir Sam to drink Cask Ale from Llantrisant.

12:00, still raining, Steam Train gone and an awesome welcome from the Craft Republic staff. The Goodsheds WiFi was working but it is very slow. ThreeUK, some signal but again very slow. In the end I ended up tethering to my Tesco SIM, which was rather good. Lot’s of the finest of Fine Ales, yet another T-shirt and a rather no fun journey back home on the train. Planning a non weekend visit to Craft Republic.
