Re: The Death of the Railway

Walked down Brook Street last eve - the erstwhile Railway is now called " Funerals from the Heart " - if it was April, I would be mighty suspicious but no, must view it with a modicum of decorum...........

(deathly hush all round)

Re: Pubs open on Christmas Day

Think that The Cellar is open over lunchtime - also heard that there is new landlady at a Boughton pub, who is opening lunch AND evening time !

(The latter is unverified - think pub might be The Cross Keys, said to be sporting a new range of real ales too! Must investigate further!!)

Where to get a proper pub sandwich or baguette in Chester??

Such a selection of indifferent bread on offer in Chester city - 'baguette' seems to be a licence to provide soggy, un-crusty crap rolls (yes, you at Harkers, Bear& Billet and other crims...). FFS, if you have to, just go buy from Tesco or Waitrose each day - no, guess it's too much of an effort.......

Re: Christmas @ the cellar

That Scneider Aventinus Eisbock is an EPIC beer - everyone should try a half, just to say "been there" - 12%!!!
