Double Take Curry Thursday

Overdoing it on the chip front on Curry Thursday in The Tumble Inn, Pontypridd.

Hello Again Curry Thursday

20/05/2021 Leave a comment

If there is one thing this post COVID world has brought, it is condiment sachets. Which for someone like me who likes to drown their food in Vinegar, it’s a massive step backwards. It’s not easy asking for 15 sachets of Vinegar and still getting a little respect. So off to Aldi and purchase a small bottle of Bramwells Malt Vinegar. No Non Brewed Condiment for me.

And the weather is all day rain, so maybe a little longer in Spoons and also to test out the any drink as an addition. Hazy Jane even, maybe?

I have a Spoons Gift card, so it’s flag down a server and ask them to order via their Android tablet. I just hope that I won’t go viral. And don’t start me on that. I would have just put my hand up as a server passed, if I didn’t have a smart phone. #YMMV

Tip of the day: Don’t try to check in on the Wetherspoons App until you are on WiFi.

The rain has kept most of the punters away and despite not ordering on the app, it doesn’t support gift cards. I was off straight way.

And in case you are wondering the 660ml bottles of Hazy Jane are not included in the meal deal. Pints of Doombar, are of course in.

Quick inquiry about Mango Chutney and out it came in one of those little waxed paper containers. Happy days are certainly back again.

And now I want a snooze. Nothing has really changed…

Back Indoors

Back Indoors

Monday May 17 2021 and it’s back indoors and not straight through and out into the Carpark in The Tumble Inn. Although as it is called

Not very secret and more like the carpark. Although when the wind dropped and it didn’t rain it really was rather pleasant and the staff were real troopers. I wonder it the secret garden will still be open as I’m not sure where the 314 will all go?

Time to go in. Still there is Covid security in place. Me, I’m more of an app punter. Got there early and it was already full with pushchairs and babies already awaiting entry.

The World shortage of beers is already showing up. Had to exchange a Camden Hells for a BrewDog Elvis Juice.

And before you ask the Secret Garden is still open should you wish to sit out side. Also while we were all siting outside Hard Seltzer became a thing. Strange times indeed.

And to end on a positive note, Steak Tuesday and Curry Thursday are back. Getting there.

So how to do a Wrap without getting my ugly mug in it. This is Fusioncast but I have a Web App option too. Quicker upload times as well. Audio file and a covering image file.
