Monday 29th October

Hi everyone, I thought I’d better let you know what’s happening and why there’s been no info from us for a couple of weeks.

We decided on a pub for our next visit and contacted them with a view to going on the 28th October but the pub was in a bit of a transition. The manager had left and the place was being run by agency staff with a new manager starting on 27th October, the day before our planned visit. In view of this we decided to postpone this pub for a while to let the new  guvnor settle in etc..

So we picked another pub to visit. I called but could not speak to the manager, so left a message. I also e-mailed but, up to now, have received no reply. Tonight I spoke to the secretary of the local Historical society and now we seem to be getting somewhere. Nothing has been firmly decided as to when we go, as yet, but as soon as we have plans in place you can be sure we will let you all know.

Thanks for your patience and speak to you soon,



  1. First heard about your blog on facebook camra page (the unofficial one) but stopped using that because it was becoming very boring and then forgot about your blog. Just read part1 of the first pub and will be reading the rest later. Keep it up, when you reach The Bear at Esher, which I think is on the set of cards you are using, I hope to be able to buy you both a pint, it's only a few miles down the road from me. (If it's not one of the pubs it looks like I've lost another excuse to nip out for a quick beer)

    1. Hi Richard, Thanks for your interest and your comment. Yes the Bear is on our list and we look forward to meeting you although I'm not sure how long it's going to be before we get there. Things have slowed up a bit, partly because of illness but mainly because the pubs that we've contacted so far don't seem too interested, but we hope to be paying a visit to a pub in the Midlands within the next two weeks. We'll keep you informed, Cheers for now
