Yes, have visited most of these. Maybe one in the group we haven't been to. The in-laws met at "The Horns" after WWII.
C-H-A-R-M-I-N-G post. Quite the epitome of the jolly Old England depicted in novels and movies. Did you meet your Englishman in the local too? I am, as always, falling for the Black Horse.
Fishy: Now that you mention it, yes I did meet him in a local. But it was here in OKC. The Black Horse is the pub where, as we were wandering down the street, a man staggered out of the Black Horse, flat cap on head, obviously toasted, and said to us:Lovely day, and why not?Now, how do you explain a line like that? But we use it all the time now.
Great pics. Some of the names kill me. Methinks they open them, get really drunk and THEN come up with the names.happy Mute Monday!
Oooh yes, the names are:The GreyhoundThe Valiant TrooperThe BoatThe Tippling PhilosopherThe Robin HoodYe Olde Fighting CocksThe Falkland ArmsThe Plume of FeathersThe HornsThe Black HorseThe Blue Boar
Excellent local tappies. This one is near and dear to my heart. If I were ever to go to England, this would be the reason. Although I may steer clear of Ye Old Fighting Cocks. BwhahahaHappy MM!
Fabulous--very true too: "local pub" is a great twist on theme, Pamokc!!Very picturesque, very Brit. And who doesn't love all those wonderful pub signs--wouldn"t be fun to collect pub signs as yard art??Happy MM!
Buzzy: Ye Olde Fighting Cocks is reputed to be the oldest pub in England. Very ancient. Very low ceilings. Definitely worth the visit!Aunty: Yes, I would love pub signs as yard art! I am always taking pics of pub signs, but none of these pics are mine.
ive never been to england but i would like to go someday. before the big brother there becomes an angry dad with a belt. but enough about my past regression therapy - happy MM!
was it his accent that made you swoon? I lived in Enland for a year (in my teens) but even I knew the local pub was very important.Happy MM!
K9 - Big Brother is definitely there but I try not to think about him.Boxie: Interestingly, I was probably the only girl who didn't swoon over the accent. THere's a long story involved. May have to post about it one day. If Kymmie doesn't mind.
Good afternoon Pam,I used to frequent a place called the Cricketear. They had several fine brews that they produced on site. The food was very good too. Most importantly it was in walking distance to my flat.Nice take. Happy Mute Monday!
How utterly cool. I would love a pub in my 'hood! The "bars" around here don't quite cut it.
Lovely. I want a pub in my neighborhood.
What a great feel to this. Love it. :)
