Our local Sainsbury has been getting a revamp. It has made shopping a mixture of adventure and confusion. Every time you go there the car park has a different layout and so has the shop. Everything is in a different place each visit – even the ATMs and the front door. As a consequence, when […]

I don’t really do new year resolutions, but the closest I have got is that I decided I shall watch more TV and drink more alcohol this year.Â So far I am not doing too well: it is now Jan 5th and I still haven’t found an excuse to have a drink.Â In fact I […]

I would not normally go to three pubs in a month, but today I managed three pubs in the same day!Â First was the one over the road from work for a leaving do – there were a lot of them today as a result of our restructuring.Â Then in the evening it was across […]

I rarely bother to drink alcohol, but when I was up in London on Wednesday I had a couple of pints at the Foundry Arms for old times’ sake – I used to go there before the Tate Modern opened next door when it was a quiet local pub and not a tourist magnet.Â Its […]
It was with some dismay that I came across a story in my newspaper today about pub closures. Not that I am much of a pub-goer these days but, the story was illustrated by a photo of one of the pubs I particularly enjoyed when I did visit them more often – the Intrepid Fox […]

Thanks to Danivon for pointing this out. Last month Tesco’s case before the council’s licensing committee was deferred to give them more time to prepare their case, and I had a sneaking suspicion that it was going to end up with a slap on the wrist – token fine or something.

The media seemed to be terribly disappointed to not find examples of full-scale, booze-fuelled rioting Friday night. They were out there with camera crews waiting for the trouble, but the police said that it was quieter than normal. Of course it was. Everyone was still in the pub! I was half-expecting to see crowds of […]
