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.

Three Years And A Republic

20/06/2021 Leave a comment

Really three years since my last visit to Barry? Well Fourysquare and Swarm can’t be wrong. The Sir Sam was full of people having their Saturday Breakfast and figuring out how to use The Spoons App. Which in my opinion isn’t difficult but it is rather buggy. Also it’s had the Full FTTC upgrade so the Saturday Wrap wasn’t tethered. The real reason for the visit was to have a look at Craft Republic. Impressions, close to the Barry Railway Station, pleasant ambience, friendly staff and a great selection of beers and other alcoholic drinks. Downside, the WiFi was down and the ThreeUK reception was marginal. However, all in all, a must visit.
