    You've broken Gaelic? What, the whole language? Oh well, hopefully no-one will notice, and if they do we'll blame it on Bladnoch Bess.

    I'm in the Norfolk instance of the Inn this week so it'll have to be a Woodforde's Wherry for me please.
    Let me tell you a story 'bout a poor boy....

      Woodforde's Wherry...Last time i drank that i woke up beside Bladnoch Bess' twin sister Dornoch Dora with a huge repair bill for the(now demolished) 'Dodgem Dude' sports bar.

        There's a gag in there somewhere about Dornoch Dora and her amazing door knockers, but I can't think of one that is clean enough for publication.

        Last night was a trip down holiday memory lane with bottles of wine from all the recent holiday destinations at a clan gathering. Splendid bottles of Albariٌo from Galicia, Rioja from...Rioja, Chardonnay from Bourgogne and Picpoul de Pinet from Pezenas.

        I'm now in need of a sausage butty to assuage the hangover. Is Alberto the chef in the kitchen today?

          Ah...is that a new 4D jukebox in the Morphail Suite?
          Cool!
          Time to sit back with a crate of Fowlers "wee heavy's" and ...

              • Ah...a very warm welcome to The Inn Wethewax....we've been expecting you!
                Thats a discerning choice of refreshment.
                May i be so bold as to recommend the newly refurbished 'Second Ether Wing' who cater for the more left-field choice of vices!

                  • Kids allowed to run wild in pubs are killing the fine art of a quiet pint, according to the Good Pub Guide.

                    http://www.theguardian.com/lifeandst...good-pub-guide

                    Couldn't agree more. There's nothing worse than going to enjoy a quick one at the Dog and Duck only to be assaulted by some hooligan toddler on a sugar high. Ban the little gits, that's what I say!

                    We should have a room at the back of the Moorcock Inn where they can be corralled behind a soundproof screen. If one of them misbehaves it gets fed to the Tygers of Pan Tang as an after dinner snack.

                    I quite like children but I couldn't eat a whole one.

                    Talking of a quick one, I'll have two pints of Deuchar's IPA please. I'll finish the first by the time you've poured the second.

                      • And a fine addition it will be to the many boot quakers already there!
                        Personally,when visiting said corner of the multibar,i prefer a snifter of the almost unquaffable 'Mona's old Gusset Well' a popular tincture amongst the Melniboneans and Granbretonians which i suspect is actually for the painters dipping the doors in!
                        I'm sticking with Guinness and Finlandia today though

                          • Cool Pietro.
                            Nothing i like better of a sunday night than to sit down with a keg of Tartan Special to view a good old-fashioned body swap!

                            • There was some gangly young gent with a goatie beard in here earlier on. He was a bit pissed and was rambling on about deep fat friers and Alsatians.

                              In an apparently lucid moment he piped up that he was in charge now and was going to rename the Inn after some joint he knew called the Swan With Two Necks.

                              Not sure how that will go down with the locals.

                              It's Friday afternoon so I'll have a pint of Fuller's lovely Oliver's Island golden ale. And one of those pork pie wedding cakes on the side please.

                              • He better not be thinking of getting rid of that deep fat frier,how else can us sweaty socks get our 5 a day!
                                There will be a stramash!
                                Great choice for a Friday Avo tipple PV.
                                I am on a health kick just now so i think i will stick to the McEwans Indian Pale Ale and just the one deep fried Yorkie!
