Mine is the Castle Hotel on Oldham Street in manchester. it is amazing and i wanna live there
Have you seen THAT flag in the Castle, there is an excellent history to it.
i'm gonna make sure I spend loadsa time there when I'm back in Mancland. Write essays in there and stuff.
in the Friendship.....
to be a bit dissapointing.
Which can be nice to have sometimes. There are some right roughends in there though.
i quite often work on friday nights. GAAAH!
did you say hi to her? i forgot to ask my friend what her name was. do you remember
i had forgotten about her!
You decided that you loved 'Muse' anyway, so she's mine damnit!! We'll hit some horrible fun nights soon, I'm sure.
She touched my bum once doncha know
or the dog and partridge in Didsbury.
It's cosy as fuck and has small rooms with comfy chairs and fires. I've had nothing but good times in there!
in Greenwich Village, NYC.
stoke newington high street, london.
1) The Queen's Head, Maldon. I spent about a year in there after finishing university working out how to leave home again.
2) The Old Coffee House, Soho. I have spent a LOT of time laughing and watching football in there.
3) The Blue Posts, Soho. We go to the pub quiz every fortnight and now the landlord knows our names and gives us champagne when it's one of our birthdays. Winner!
i fully intend to start writing esssays in the castle hotel
i wish more people would just hang out in the pub with me. i love the pub.
I'd take the paper down there on a Sunday and do the crossword and stuff. But I quickly got to know the regulars so there was always banter. And after a few months I bumped into an old school friend there and he became my hardcore pub buddy for the rest of the time.
I love the pub as well. They're great places to be.
i wanna go SOOOO much right now
in an establishment is recognised.
I don't have to order in the Town hall tavern most of the time now. Most of the bar staff know what I want.
pubs are amazing!
come visit manc land and i'll take you to the old men pubs! no corona there lassy!
it depends what sex and age the bartender is.
i find male and 18-22 is the best.
is it just bitter? i dont like bitter.
double G&T? yes? good. im there.
i'm gonna make you drink mild tho!
Like a meal in a pint glass.
how many hours a week do you spend in the pub?
what sort of time of day do you go?
who do you go with?
do you enjoy going to pubs on your own?
when i feel like a pint.
whoever will come with me.
yes i do.
Early afternnon for papers and book, 9ish for socialising
Lonesome for first sitting, people I was at school with for socials
My local, yes, I can read and as there are so few other customers on a day I don't get looks.
haha aw :(
I just really like the wallpaper in the toilets
Charming little place.
inexplicably staffed by loadsa emos
also, you living in leeds at the moment? wanna go for a drink sometime?
I once offended Napoleon IIIrd by pointing out I had ordered lemonade instead of lager. He looked radgey.
this. brilliant, cheap pub. great location too.
staff are all nice, they have millers gin(the finest gin, ever)
it's not too expensive + its stumbling distance to dominos.
they once played papa roach in there.
Or 'The Paddle Feet'' in Stoke.
Even though we walked past it. Twice. I fair near wept.
if it's the one on oldham street your talking about. it is pretty great - i got talking to three drunken builders about the controlling nature of time and how we shouldn't teach youngsters to know the clock.
my favourite pub is the coachmakers arms, in hanley. it's a great old terraced house with four different rooms off a cenntral drinking corridor, eccentric drunks playing the grand piano, loads of original tiling, eight guest beers, parsley sauce packets used as ornaments on the mantelpiece .... non-local favourite pub is definitely the three stags heads in wardlow mires, derbyshire. there isn't anywhere like it on the planet, it can't have changed much in the last 200 years. roaring fires in huge imposing iron grates, dusty flagstone floors, the most basic furniture ever, fines for using a mobile phone, dogs (and portraits of dogs) everywhere, mummified cats to ward off evil spirits (not the whiskey) behind the bar, eerie fox heads on the wall, a well full of sheep skulls next to the entrance door ....
i played a gig in the back room once. it was one fuck of a lot of fun!
Who are the they?
the vine in manchester city centre near the tiger lounge
the ale is right good and they sell bacon fries behind the bar...
it even has a rubbish jukebox
a more than acceptable pub.
in brighton. for the above reason but also all the little messages in the tins that adorn the walls.
they used to do a well good burger.
is also my favourite pub, despite the toilets. The tap room is kind of how I hope the afterlife will be. Getting a half Old Tom afer a few Unicorns is so great.
Its strange in there since Cath died, she was brilliant and it makes me feel sad to go back in there now. Thought that mural of her is incredible.
Its good for gigs too, and its also home to the greatest peice of graffiti I've ever read in my life!
And its quite funny that you can't get to the ladies toilet if a band is playing.
Written on the cistern in the mens: "I fucked your mum", and underneath it someone had written "Go home dad, you're drunk" :'D :'D :'D :'D
i love that the urinals are flushed by a gutter leading outside.
i wanna go there right now actually.
about living in Manchester.
I once read about it in a book at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park, apparently the pub was built in 1897. And its mentioned in a Fall song. Yorkshire Sculpture Park is probably the last place I'd ever expect to be reading abou The Castle.
Away: The Montague Arms, New Cross
.....a frankly unhinged yet utterly brilliant clash between skinny jeans indie kid hipster hangout and genuine old man pub with the most bizarre interior decor I have ever witnessed (Stuffed zebra in a carriage? Check). Genuinely lovely OAP staff and a good little venue for bands too complete with geriatric organist. Also, giant roast with dessert for 6.50. ULTRA WIN.
i kept hearing rumours that it'd been properly closed down, which would be a crying shame. great pub!
the montague is still open, and it's brilliant!
Roast lamb with a lovely strudel.
not really a pub though
The King Street Run in Cambridge was a favourite haunt of mine when I was at Uni. It had a great jukebox (9 songs for a quid or something daft like that), beano comics on the ceiling, arcade machines in the back and 3 pool tables upstairs near where part of the ceiling had caved in. Ace.
great wasn't it! I also remember the toilet had the bit you push on the side where the hinge was, so you had to press on the other side. I saw someone walk straight into it once. Classic. I seem to remember the barmaids being rather nice as well. *sigh*
except for the jukebox cost. that's gone up.
Belfast - was the Somerton until it got knocked down. Only bar that will actually ever be my local.
Now in Belfast - Duke of York and the JOhn Hewitt, and Auntie Annies when I forget I'm too old for it now.
Melbourne - George Public Bar. Actually if I was limited to a single pub for one last drink, this would be it.
It's my cheers
It's the only one I don't get chucked out of. It's quite nice as well though. One more month...
The Glen - Babbacombe bay
The White Horse - Rickmansworth
The Cock Inn - Local
