Still trying to decide where to live so, with the ideal ideal excuse of a friend’s birthday, I did some important research on one possible location: the local pub! Now my current local is a disaster, so it’s a pretty low bar to beat, but the Bunch of Grapes was a bit of a revelation- if only I hadn’t been driving!
So on the plus side: same distance to work, a very nice meal there on Tuesday, and a great local. On the minus side: it’s a little out of the way (I would definitely miss my station) and I’m not from round there :)
It’s on the (not so)short list.
