HI, As usual we will be visiting family & friends in the west midlands between Christmas & New year so we may well call in for an overnight on the return down south.

Are the feathers frills & tassels de rigueur ? Not totally sure I still have any that fit.

You lot don't hang about do you - 3 likes in 3 minutes. I take it that means you will be up for a New Year meet then. :)

I've already contacted Kate and Jim to see how many vans they can accommodate and will start a new thread if peeps are interested.

According to their website it's John Smiths and Guest beers. perhaps it could be arranged!

I used to drive past your place every day when I worked in Daventry and can confirm it would be a brilliant place for a meet! :dance:

Right on the canal side, so you'll need to be careful which way you turn to go back to your van after a couple of snifta's!!! :cheers: :scared:

Hey Ted, you're not wrong there. I spent this afternoon next to Will in a London pub playing in a great tune session. If it is Will Pound at the Bridge Inn he's well worth a listen.

This sounds a great pub for a future music meet!

Nicky and Will played a concert in our house recently, 30 very happy people in out front room. Incredible. A barrel of Roosters Yankee, far superior to Doombar, helped the gig along!

We have never been to a pub and felt like locals after only 2 days but we did here

The car park was not full of m/h but what a great time we have had this weekend, our hosts Kate and Jim made us feel welcome as soon as we arrived. On friday night there was cabaret on so you could eat and be entertained, the food was good and a good choice, alternatively you could just sit and chater in the lounge. The pub is right by the canal so a good walk along the towpath, this we did up to the marina and saw a good selection of barges. The car park is of a good size and has a field attached to it so for the summer months there is a lot of possibilities. The highlight of our weekend was saturday night a group of 7 folk musicians had a jam session in one of the bars, it was impossible it keep your feet still. you could join in if you felt like it, just a great evening. So keep an eye out10336103351033410337 on their web site for future events, as its well worth going, we intend to return very soon.

We have done a few of the suggested pubs on this site and can say we have yet to be disappointed but most have been a good trek away so this would be fab for a quick break, we will definitely be making a visit very soon
