Recording the slow, sad death of the British pub
You will be happy to learn (if you don't already know) that The Castle has re-opened as has The Albert (the pub on the other side of Albert Road bridge here in Widnes. The Castle was my granddad's local and I've had a few in both pubs myself over the years, sometimes with mates and sometimes with my own dad. Happy days.Good blog on a matter that not many people care about. They will when its too late.
The only pub I know where you could go out the door and put one hand on the wall and walk around and go back into the same door.
