The New Inn

Despite the first snow in 2010 forecast for this evening, we actually turned up hoping by the end we'd be snowed in and have to resort to surviving on beer and crisps for a few days. Just as well that didn't happen really, this is one of the few pubs I've been to where they didn't have any Amaretto, no pork scratchings and ignore numerous requests for 'no ice'. To their advantage though they did have some tasty Pickled Onion Monster Munch.
The only other people in the pub were the four locals sitting behind us. As a special treat (probably for life service to the pub), a birthday cake was produced from behind the bar and presented with the usual song. That was about as electrifying at the atmosphere got.

A standard out of town type pub, level of trade was quite low but then by the time we left there was enough snowfall to have a bit of a snowball fight as well as slide about in the car before getting onto a gritted road (which was actually quite fun, in a non dangerous sort of way....honest). a pretty uneventful evening once again however this may be because we were wondering if there was enough snow to get a day off work the next day.
