I had to quietly wait to take this photo as there was a lady in front of the chair talking to someone on her mobile phone. When she finished and realised I was there I was regarded with grave suspicion and tersely asked ‘What do you want?’
My reassurance that I wanted to take this photo hardly helped. Her suspicious, bad tempered look changed into incredulity as her thoughts considered the possibility she had a loony in the ladies loo with her! 😉
The view out the window is into Liverpool Street station.
Found in the garden of the Old Road Tavern on New Road last week. There’s an enormous apple tree there absolutely laden with fruit 😮
The scene is set for our pub lunch…
The view from the pub’s garden after we’d completed our walk The hens made a significant contribution to our lunch, having donated the eggs 🙂
Irish pubs are amazing. Go into one and it’s more than likely that the place is jumping and everyone’s singing Nowhere more so than the Oliver St John Gogarty in Temple Bar.
The corner buildings of the railway village are taller and a little more ornate than the rest of the street. Some look like they may have housed people higher up in the railway’s hierarchy. Many have a pub serving local ales.
Judging by the graffiti, the food might be cheap, but the conversation’s priceless.
This pub regularly plays host to the local Morris Dancing troop. I showed you the benches outside this hostelry for my second Friday Bench post a while ago.
