Unfortunately they have that mouth breathing moron of a MD, I used to quite like a spoons breakfast every now and then and did occasionally eat there at other times but I absolutely refuse to give him a penny more, his moronic views on brexit and his insistence on promoting it in every pub have royally pissed me off
You mean the founder, Tim Martin, worth several hundred million. That mouth breathing moron?
That's what I thought too.
You might have made a good point if you hadn't so comprehensively bksed up the quoting smile

Yeah yeah, split infinitive. Sue me.

edit: Fixed bksed up quoting. That'll teach me.

If I'm not working from home then you can find me for an hour every lunchtime in The Matthew Broderick 'spoons in Leeds, having my lunch and pint of Kronenbourg. Bloody excellent place - I couldn't get a sandwich meal deal sort of thing for that sort of money. Relatively scrote free too.
Much as I admire the work of Cuthbert Brodrick your post now means I will no longer refer to the 'spoons with his name correctly, from now on it's The Matthew Broderick beer

Not tempted to pop over the road for 1/3 of a pint for £6 in Assembly Underground then?

Nicely updated with respect to the original or previous use of the building and its history.
That’s because I believe he gets a tax break if he repurposes old bank / institution type buildings as restaurants. It’s an obscure, if not successful taxation massaging technique.

I met a Fillipino mail order bride. She'd been sold this promise of great wealth in the West but it turned out that an impotent, alchoholic electrician off on the sick with a baddy back and living in some sthole Welsh town was not quite the dream. Anyway, I did notice that if you were out and about with her (admittedly almost all going from bar to hotel) I did notice a lot of judgemental and/or smirking looks that you simply don't get otherwise. From my experience they do appear to be rather council.

Question is, is shagging someone elses mail order bride also council?!

End of life, isn’t out of date. If it’s ‘hoppy’ no one notices.

Jesus. That’s a “no” from me.

I’m in Whitby for a long weekend. Lest night Mrs DS fell on some dark, wet steps and smashed her face on a grate - proper bad mess, looked like someone had stuck an axe in her face (right through). So she’s been in Middlesbrough having some plastic surgeon put it back together again.

Anyway - standing outside in the “no smoking” area





Poor quality - he’s actually smoking a fag

Wetherspoons.....

I want to dislike it but I just can't. That means it's really rather good.

A great choice of beers. What gets me excited though are the gourmet burger meals which are really very good. As mentioned previously, a meal and a pint for under £10 and the meals are usually good. It's a 'safe bet' place, where you are unlikely to come away disappointed.

The problem is when to go to Wetherspoons. If you go at the wrong time, you are likely to get annoyed. I live 1 minute from a Wetherspoon in York and I make sure I try to avoid a chav or uni student type environment, which normally means going at non-typical meal times! Doesn't bother me though.

The Wetherspoons app is brilliant and I love using it.

Also a huge fallacy - it maybe how they started but with the number of pubs in the chain now it is impossible for there to be such a huge supply of “end of life” beer.
