After all the shopping and present wrapping it was time to do the Christmas Eve ritual of going around the pubs to socialise a bit.
And so we walked northwards in the cold foggy atmosphere to...
The Four Ashes where we start every year. Outside in the smoking area were a few Chav and chavettes awaiting to cause some kind of fight and give the police something to do. Inside was empty. But not any more get the beer flowing.
Next was the Harrows and even Greenie made a n appearance.
Once we had parted the Old Speckled Hen we headed into the Rainbow. Les made an appropiate joke about the quality of the beer here. Personal though I liked the dish water.
Greenie showed Les something exciting and rather rude on his phone. But we want go there for now.
Which made Beardy ask me "what are they looking at?"
Before you knew it the pub had emptied and it was time to consider going home to see santa.
Greenie said he had a great idea and was going to come round mine for some more beer and food and wait to see santa there.
And so we left the Rainbow in search of the food and Beer and has anyone seen Beardy??
