Sending this from the bar of the Llandoger Trow in Bristol. Chilly night but everyone is outside so that they can have a smoke. This building dates from 1664 and features in 'Treasure Island'.
Famous feet have trodden these worn old boards; Alexander Selkirk met Daniel Defoe here and pirates sailed from the quay outside and Gowing and Rivers wrote in green ink.
Halcyon days and 5oz rumps.

But for POS, MOS, Marketing (Milk Bottles), Surf & Turf, Chef & Brewer,Pasta etc we could still be enjoying a small amontillado, Prawn Cocktail, 8oz Sirloin, Black Forest Gateau, an Irish Coffee & a whiff of Phil's Hamlet (or pipe) ...
