The Bear, Crickhowell

On a sunny winter's afternoon the light, if anything, emphasised the atmospherically dim interior of this historic inn.

The blazing log fire and comfortable seating made for a cosy visit. The ales and food seemed decent enough, but be aware that there is only skeleton menu and service at off-peak meal times.

But taking in the ancient surroundings, you can't help but wonder, if only walls could speak, then what tales they might tell? There again, you might get the Michael Caine of the Talking Walls World. "Did you know, that that Oscar Wilde always walked beneath an opened umbrella, even when it was not raining? Not a lot of people know that"

Rest, drink, and be thankful.

The Navigation Inn, Nottingham

The Navigation now has live blues music on Wednesday evenings, sustained by Nottingham's living legend Colin Staples and his friends.

Their crowd seem to get joined by students about halfway through, and for midweek the place becomes quite conspicuously lively.

What, with its fine beer, it's jolly good, I'd say.

Ye Olde Trip to Jerusalem, Nottingham

Blue Scrumpy nails it pretty well still.

I'd just add, that over the years, more rooms have been brought into service, and the wood chip wallpaper etc., along with other then-contemporary pub trappings from the 1970s are long gone.

So, perhaps ironically, the pub has more of an other worldly, bygone age feel to now than it did back then.

Time Immemorial, by legal definition, ended in 1189, incidentally.

Make what you might of that.
