Try going to bed a bit earlier.
I was going to have a bit of a praise and grumble about the place so am curious to know what the story is!
Town centres are dying ? Or full of people dying?
Charles Dickens was right?
The Dodo in the dull High Street?
Almost had to after that lol
the silence is deafening
'The Dodo in the dull High Street'
Yachts take quite a bit of choosing you know
When a sentence is constructed upon the lines of "the x has never been y since z" one should automatically have one's guard up.
The Order of the Garter was instituted by Edward III, and had more to do with the confidence of a Monarch who had proved himself in battle. I'd be interested to see what source you might cite that could possibly link it to being a 'Vatican knighthood' - at its institution it was very much an 'internal' affair.
There's the Vatican again. I'd be even more interested to see the source for this one. King Billy?
No Surrender Billy Boy,no feckin' surrender!
"War is not meant to be won, it is meant to be continuous. Hierarchical society is only possible on the basis of poverty and ignorance. This new version is the past and no different past can ever have existed. In principle the war effort is always planned to keep society on the brink of starvation. The war is waged by the ruling group against its own subjects and its object is not the victory over either Eurasia or East Asia, but to keep the very structure of society intact."
I hear the Post House is being reopened
Apparently you'll be able to buy stamps in one bit and look at postcards of career opportunities in another bit
This is just what the town needs
All we need now is a match seller outside the Picture House and a man on a bicycle selling newspapers in the Market Square
Bring it on I say
Indeed, it is quite important to understand the difference:
The Monarch is the ruling head of state chosen by a process of heredity. The Crown is the top bit of a turkey.
Monarch is a failed airline.
The Crown is what the currently-closed Spittal Brook used to be.
After it was the Spital Brook
No more lewis partnership
, have eaten here many times over the past few years and it's always been a good standard, was in for a drink last week to be told by staff that it has been sold to a new company!! Such a Shame to see the Lewis partnership leave the town no bear? No swan? What next?
To be honest The Swan`s standards have slipped for a good while. Inside looks tatty.
The dog and doublet seem rudderless / clueless and the food served as part of a work day time function a couple of months ago at the moat house was below par.
Loads of staff turnover and internal wrangles over the last couple of years (at the d&d at least).
Either loosing their touch or eye taken off the ball
Has @ChrisLewis been on lately?
Sunday at 9.59pm
Thanks Gareth for the feedback all duly noted!
Just to balance the negativity a bit - four family members stayed there recently and all liked their rooms (my mum would like to know what mattresses you use @ChrisLewis ?!) and we joined them for breakfast two days which was excellent and Amberle (I think it was?) who has on serving duty both mornings was a sweetheart. We had a meal there also and the food was very good - excellent veggie and vegan options - but service very poor (no wine order arrived until almost finished main course - in fairness the manager gave us a second bottle free as an apology - and staff very thin on the ground). Bar service painfully slow but think new staff were being trained and the cocktails took a bit of prep.
