750 Volt DC and a 07:00 Start – #mb10

20/06/2019 Leave a comment

June or the end of June 2019 see me return to Wessex. More correctly Dorchester and Weymouth. The 20th June was chosen as I could have most of my journey in the light.

Sedgemoor South Services in the middle of the night.

However when you stop off at Sedgemoor South, M5 West Country and it’s just after 03:00, it is still dark. However the toilets are clean and the McD’s coffee cheap and good. Free O2 WiFi but tethering to ThreeUK LTE is a better bet.

Brewer Square with Costa Coffee opening at 05:45 weekdays

Dorchester South Railway Station

Happy to be back in the land of 750 Volt 3rd rail trains. A guards strike on South Western Railways had little effect. Watch out for the Black Cat on the Weymouth bound platform.

The Swan - Weymouth

Where the bar opens at 07:00 weekdays

Winning! I wonder if I’ll get a shout out from Retired Martin for finding a Pub with a 07:00 start?

Handpulls at The Swan, Weymouth

50% local cask, which is good. LOCALE.

A bit of a Mod Pub

And it’s in the Good Beer Guide too. I little like stepping back in time but it had a very friendly welcome.

Moving on to The Doghouse. Weymouth’s finest and as far as I know micro pub. Next to the Library if you are a reader?

And the Dog of The Doghouse, Ruddles. He had a ball and he was very friendly too.

It really is worth a visit. The best beer in Weymouth, easily. I’m back there on Saturday, Guard strike or no
