For When You Need Comfort

DSC_4054

I Ieave for work, pondering gif they will deliver or if this is going to be a right pain.

DSC_4055

Sometime later when I return and having heard nothing

DSC_4061

I am relieved to see building blocks

DSC_4060

and side pavers

DSC_4059

Yep, lots of them.

DSC_4062

I haven't got time to admire them for long though.

DSC_4064

In, get changed and out of the door to make the 17:50 train north. I get to the station just in the nip of time.

DSC_4066

And when the train does come it is the gold one.

DSC_4067

Inside nothing has changed other than the code of conduct sign.

DSC_4068

At Hednesford the train pulls up briefly. And I notice something.

DSC_4068

Wow from the 8th October they are going live! Will they have found any trains though of the electric kind spare to use?

DSC_4070

We whizz through Cannock Chase

DSC_4076

and onto some lovely scenery.

DSC_4084

At the station I climb the stairs.

DSC_4081

Over to the other side where I can get a ticket.

DSC_4080

Once brought I head on back to the bridge.

DSC_4083

This is such a lovely place to be.

DSC_4088

As I head over the top I look around.

DSC_4087

Either a train spotters paradise or a suiciders retreat.

DSC_4090

Train two comes and I nip on board.

DSC_4093

10 minutes later I arrive in Stafford.

DSC_4095

A short time later I arrive at the Sun. And look who has just arrived too.

DSC_4097

One minute I’m in the Sun, the next minute I’m not. I text the people I’m meeting, now in the Beer Garden. The reply I get is where is the Beer Garden. Know who it is who has asked the question, I know they are not asking where the beer garden is, but where the beer garden is as a pub. I make it clearer. The beer garden is at the back of the pub.

DSC_4101

A while later I look up and see the sky.

DSC_4102

Which is lucky as if I look down I see my trainers.

DSC_4106

A lot of people may see this glass is half full,

DSC_4107

but it is not and another round is brought. We move to a warmer spot, which isn’t much warmer.

DSC_4103

And thus move into the shed.

DSC_4109

When I go in for another round, there is now a table free so I tex the others to come in.

DSC_4110

although Rog said he had to decipher that.

DSC_4114

Interestingly in the toilet it has been arrange “for when you need some comfort”.

DSC_4117

The pack splits and me and my brother head for the Island, which is located on the island and used to be called the Island Pub, But is no longer, called pub.

DSC_4122

I’ve never been, it is a first for me.

DSC_4126

Inside it is quiet but nice.

DSC_4128

It should be noted though, that if you are coming here, it is a bring your own. And that means bring your own. They do not sell any alcohol. And so we had water.

DSC_4119

Luckily they do serve food, which is what this place is all about. Taste and experience.

DSC_4131

I order a Tawa, and my brother orders a Jalfrezi.

DSC_4130

And a couple of nans. I have the usual plain one and my brother a cheesy garlic one.

DSC_4132

i can confirm the plain ones were top notch, so I ordered another which was very quickly prepared.

DSC_4133

And the cheese and garlic one was also hand made. And lovely, unlike some other places where the plain ones are hand made but the other choice ones are obviously brought in.

DSC_4136

How was the food.

DSC_4137

Well this says it all.

DSC_4138

And at the end of the night I was not about to get wet feet. Here they have extra wide piss pots.
