An Hostelry

When I was in my 20s I used to frequent a little country pub on the Wirral.  It was called The Wheatsheaf at Raby.  When CJ, Jo and I were returning from one of our outings we passed it and stopped for a photo.  What really worried me was that although I recall that ‘the gang’ used to meet there a lot on our regular nights out I didn’t remember it inside at all.  In fact the only thing I could recall is that it was virtually impossible to park the car anywhere near it on a Thursday or Friday night.  One day I shall return.  Hopefully it will either be a cold winter night and the fire will be burning warm and welcoming or it will be a beautiful, warm and sunny summer evening.  The things of which memories are made.

  1. A gorgeous building. I trust as good inside. Looks a bit gastro pub now. Nothing wrong with that if the menu is limited to four dishes or so. I would have gone in but then I've no will power.

  2. I'd want to go inside, too. The folks gathered outside look like they enjoyed it.
