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.

The lazy Mini Beano

Of Apple and Eggs

20/11/2022 Leave a comment

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.

It used to a Full English was an essential part of a Mini Beano. Lately I have flip flopped over them. There’s nothing wrong with them but sometimes I just don’t fancy them. By the way, Premier Inn seem to have got rid of their conveyor belt toasters. Standard toasters are now in.  My Taxi Driver is saying £2.00 a litre for Diesel at Christmas. I fear he is correct.  Mornings in Spoons, Oldies getting together and discussing the World.  The Price Freeze on Fine Ales is reversed. Mayorships gained at both The Foley Hotel and Weavers Real Ale House. Taxi back.

£2.00 For Christmas

A Full English, then a 360 video outside the Malvern Premier in. I got a Taxi and it was so much easier. My driver is saying £2.00 a litre for Diesel at Christmas. I think he may be correct. The Alcohol Duty freeze has been scrapped but the mainstream media are not saying when it will be implemented. Two new Mayorships in a day. And Untappd stats.

It’s good driving at dawn when the roads are quiet, the odd spot of mist too.  The M50 and DH Unplugged.  Then cross country and the roads became narrower and narrower. The Premier Inn looks nice but it is a 45 minute walk away from Spoons. Thinking taxi. Spoons, The Foley Arms is a Hotel and has blisteringly fast FTTC. Maybe stay there next time?  The Beer Fest continues. The Weavers Real Ale House, cask, keg, fridge and fast FTTC.

A later but light start, park up and find the Foley Arms.  I did that but it was a 45 minute walk from the Premier Inn and it was mostly uphill. The Foley Arms is a Spoons Hotel, note for Future. Really busy, awesome staff. Festival Ales still in excellent condition.  Moving on to The Weavers Real Ale House, just around the corner from the Foley Arms. Cask, Keg, Cans and very fast FTTC WiFi.

A new place, Great Malvern and a relaxed Sunday journey up. A 90 minute journey up and a Premier Inn just on the edge of town. Late start, mostly travelling in the light. Aiming for a Gentle Beano. Update, 45 minute work from the Premier Inn to Spoons. Getting a taxi tomorrow.
