Book Reviewer
Sol. you constantly disappoint me when the content doesn't live up to the headline.............I'm sat on the naughty step .. again!
Honky Tonk, Beir Keller, Nero's ...

Can remeber leaving the Bier Keller one evening on the way to the Fun Fair to look for big eats ... had been drinking steins of Lowenbru ... got outside and although I could think clearly ... walk in a straight line ... every time I spoke it just didn't come out in any sensible order ...

Some memories on there SGP, the Albion and the Criterion two staple run ashore pubs back in the 60's, the Criterion was run by two women, maybe sister both in their 30's, one night one of them tells me to come round to the back door after closing time, celebrated my good luck too much and by the time I got to the back door I could hardly stand, got told my luck was out in no uncertain terms,
