    What time do they open on Sundays? Drove past yesterday afternoon and it looked closed, nipped in to Tesco for a few bits and pieces, drove past again shortly afterwards and it seemed pretty full

    It's got a lovely atmosphere on Sunday. I've not been to floodgate for a number of weeks. I'm getting withdrawal symptoms.

    I understand that -"Well-behaved dogs are welcome and provided for. The pub operates an adult-only policy." - whether that excludes puppies or not is not clear..

    May have the opportunity to mosey on down there this Sunday, just wondering whether a contribution would be in order. Was thinking decent black pudding.

    Looks like I've been thwarted, the plan was to get a lift into Stafford and pop in whilst Mrs T and Gurly were at the flicks watching Cats but they can't get seats.

    Not until 17:20 but I'll put it out there to them, think they were looking at an afternoon showing and then out for tea.
