This week we made last minute plans to get together with friends who are not going to be around for much of the oncoming weeks. With Roland, Vera and Baby Bethany states bound we decided to head to one of their local haunts for a spot of Sunday roast lunch; Gordon Ramsey’s The Narrow in […]
Don’t you hate clip shows? You know the ones, a season summary, where the show’s characters look back on happenings over the year using clips from previous episodes to tell a story? I always felt jipped by that. At Christmas we would sit and watch a show (The blank Christmas Special) and shake our heads […]
Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday dear Claire, Happy Birthday to you! This week to celebrate Claire’s birthday, and with the return of Lindsay from the US, we are once more heading West to Notting Hill and this week’s venue The Clarendon. I actually prompted this as a choice having read the review from […]
I never quite got the Princess Bride thing. I am sorry. I have seen it. I remember it. But I never found the need for a repeat performance, until I can quote it word for word, verbatim. “My name is Inigo Montoya, you killed my father, prepare to die.” Um, okay. I may seem to be […]

This week’s adventure was a bit of an impromptu one. Nick planned it Friday night, after spending the entire night at the venue with Saul, and letting us know the target pub Saturday morning quite late, as he had a hangover. He booked it, and on his head be it. Now, according to the interweb […]
Week two of our COCK and BULL fortnight, and eight of us find ourselves in Fulham at the Cock and Hen. Not the normal for us here, a Youngs pub – a chain, not a freehouse, and not a gastro-effort. There is precious little on the Youngs website about the place too, and the site […]
An issue that anyone looking for a nice Sunday Roast lunch in London will have in the back of their mind is the Premier League and Football League fixture list.
