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.

Now where did I park my Bike..

    Lovely little post Sheila, and an insight into country life in Cornwall, yes it its a shame that things change and your old pub is going, , Love the name Pint and Post sounds like they have a humorous side, go on and have a pint. It could be the January blues you have, is it any wonder, this wet miserable weather is enough to give anyone the miseries. I feel the same. Come back summer a we need you.

    I am so longing for spring and the beautiful flowers, I am so sorry about the Pub across the way from you. It is sad but the small business is on the losing side in today’s world. Hugs!

    An eye catching picture, Sheila. Is this perhaps an ad ?
    I hope you managed to go to THE PINT AND POST for some good food and drink to cheer you up. Keep us posted to what happens to the old little pub across the road.
    Would be good if someone could keep it going, maybe without a licence. I assume without a licence it would become more affordable?
    Big hug, Uta

    Lovely nostalgic story Sheila, pity the old ways of country life are changing.
    Sounds like it was a beautiful village pub in its heyday, great name The Pint and Post.
