What a shock!
Ambled into the Altrincham branch to find a notice,telling us there's no draught beer.. None... Nothing... Nada!

Ordered 2 manager's special Sirloin steaks @ 4.99.
each... But what to wash it down with?

Then I saw that they offer big mugs of good filter coffee, refillable as often as you want..1.10.
Bought one and asked for a glass of water with 2 straws.

We can now both share the coffee... How romantic!
We're on our 6th cup and plan to take it home with us, for next time.
Is this normal,or just a Yorkshire thing?
Must go... Bladder calling!

Run that by me again Paul! You went into a pub with no beer. And you remained???

Worse still, you drank coffee???

Shame on you!

(Take a flask next time - you could take a couple of large coffees home)

Yes Rob but if you read the small print he says Sirloin steak at 4.99 :scared: . We all know what Paul is like , deep pockets and short arms spring to mind :)

Well I am surprised at you.

A true yorkshireman would have taken sandwiches with them.

I know, I know, I am not made of money.

I had a voucher for the coffee so that could be free as well.

Not your lap dancing again Paul. The sight of your big hairy arse cut in two with a fluorescent thong, wiggling in front of some poor buggers face is enough to make me seek therapy.

Just got back. Well, I have.
Jenny's still dancing in the police cell.
In Yorkshire we used to call sweets, " Spice"
Somebody offered her some spice..she took a handful,thinking they were Smarties....

Goodnight.

If you're a regular in 'spoons and you have a smartphone they have an app that allows to order and pay from your table so you don't need to queue with the unwashed. Turns 'spoons into waited service restaurant and you jump the queue.

We've moved upmarket and are now dining at Altrincham Golf Club.
What a find..
A classy Marston's pub,with a golf course attached.

Very swish, cheap proper food and a free pint of Cumberland,on Friday... But you must order a meal.
Great soup and Beef lasagne..... 6.50.

Jenny's having the soup and Ciabatta..
I'm having the beer.
We'll haggle over sharing the lasagne.

Think we'll take the mug back to. Wetherspoons for coffee,afterwards.

We went in to a Whetherspoons at Tumbridge Wells this weekend , good meal and drinks but what a fabulous building it was in, it was an old Opera house and still has many of the original features such as rows of seats and the private boxes, apparently once a year an Opera is performed here as well , also used Whetherspoons at Brighton too this weekend as we were camping at Worthing, great weather wasn't it.

We have ever only used two Weatherspoons.
One at Stourport on Severn, the food is OK, but the local cliental are to say the least not the sort of people we would want to socialise with, visitors are totally different. The tables are stained and dirty, but the food is OK and cheap.
The other we have used is at Bewdley on Severn and is very clean and has a different cliental, older and more affluent!
We have one in Hanley, Stoke on Trent, and last year we sat in a McDonalds, across the road and watched the smack heads come out and fall on the pavement!
I think some are good, others are not so good, depending on location!

Which one did you use? Was it the Post & Telegraph - the one on the main drag or on one of the roads leading up from the beach? We used to use the Post & Telegraph great for breakfast, in fact we preferred buying theirs rather than getting a free one at the hotel we were working at.

The one at Sale, is clean, cheerful and respectable.
Altrincham, however, is totally different.
When Jenny feels a diabetic crisis due to arrive, any one will do, the food is ready in no time.
A carvery is the ideal option, but they are not as convenient when we're in a strange town.
