but what caught my eye a few months back , was the decline of MFP. My Favorite Pub , as directly across the road from the Bungalow where I live, is a lovely little country pub. To see it going down hill and looking very neglected , was a sad sight to see. The hanging baskets which hung were so full of color and assorted flowers. No longer alive by the first glance , looking very shabby. The paint on the wall on the facing road side looking dirty and flaky. No cars parked there on a Sunday lunch time. I often watched folk escorting the older generation , and children at times, for a hearty Sunday traditional lunch.
Quite a few years now perhaps 6-7 years, they held a wonderful BBQ for a charity , gazebos erected and sizzling steak could be smelt from across the road. I invited my girlfriends from town to come along. We needed tickets for live music , so advised them park in my large drive. The place was buzzing , it was a fantastic night . It was summer the evening for warm and pleasant I remember.
Well the owners are trying to de- licence the old place , after failing to sell this lovely little pub.
Times have changed sad to say ..the nearest pub is only two miles away rather small . It has changed hands many times , but has proved to be very popular with the Village and passing trade. It used to be a post office , until a lot of country post office were closed. It did have a small bar with light snacks . They extended the restaurant after the shut down of the Post . It was called the Pint and Post , nice one don’t you think. Good to say they are doing very well, and serve a good old traditional Sunday Lunch. Now called THE PINT AND POST , still . a post box sits across the road..
As the weather gets more and more unsettled , I am unable to get myself going at times. Must be the January blues, I’ll just have to pop down the Pint and Post Ha! Apparently they are very friendly and the food is wonderful.
Love this picture thought I would share it with you.
Enjoy your week , and thanks for reading.
