The Rose and Crown, Nottage

After carefully towelling the sand from between the toes of my beloved at Rest Bay beach, I suggested that we stopped off for the odd one in lovely little Nottage village. We'd used the Farmers Arms at the end of July, when we sat under the shade of a horse chestnut, to enjoy a Wye Valley HPA and Cabernet Sauvignon by charming table service back then, and fancied doing the same, this glorious Indian summer's day.

Unfortunately the Farmer's was shut, but we stumbled upon the Rose and Crown on our way out and thought that we'd give it a try.

Two bemasked and slightly portly lads met us at the door, flushed with frustration as they left. "It's the same as all Brain's pubs - you need an app and the rest of the crap" they warned.

We could have missed a treat - the garden looked fine - but felt reliably enough cautioned to head for home.

So oi'll geev eet foive, which is what Brain's pubs usually get. I mean, fair's fair, y'know?

Sorry to be unable to help further today.

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.
