    "Great read every day. Makes me smile as Rab muses about music and his irreverent views on the EU. Tune in, you won't be disappointed."

    "Excellent 'Blog' which can be controversial at times, while maintaining it's humour. Keep it up Big Rab!"

    "Updated every day with doses of good humour, political satire, a running commentary on the progress of author's home football team and his life."

    "Pure brilliant, so it is - I never miss it, though God knows, I've tried."

    "An inspiration to start my own blog"

    "For dipping into it's better than pakora sauce"

    "Anyone who doesn't like the EU and has a soft spot for Albion Rovers can't be all bad"

    "Facile and False"

    "Populist,puerile and prosaic"

    "Utter pish! Keep it up, I love it!"

    "People may also find the Ben Lomond Free Press blog illuminating, interesting and/or amusing. It’s not mentalist as such but familiar themes emerge. I particularly like accounts of encounters with strange elementals (of course! ELEmentals!) from elfin safety. And the fact that the blog is run by someone who plays in a blues band called Harmonica Lewinsky."

Whilst in Englandshire yesterday I took this photo:


I was outside what is reputed to be the oldest inn in England dating from 1203 AD.

Without Googling, any idea of the Inn’s name or location?

  1. angel hat?

  2. I bet you it’s not.

  3. Winchester?
    The Crown?

  4. Ye Olde Red Lion, York

  5. nottingham

  6. It’s the Angel and Royal at Grantham Lincolnshire.

  7. > It’s the Angel and Royal at Grantham Lincolnshire.

    Far, far from being the oldest, mon ami. I don’t think it’s even the oldest pub in Lincolnshire which, I believe, is The Adam and Eve in the shire town itself. (Yup, been tipsy in there too.)

    • I have done no investigation other than read the tourist signs. I did say inn not public house – and I did say reputedly because I’m sure there are establishments country wide with similar claims.
