Following a recent promise to the viewers of my posts I find myself having to visit more pubs to test the ale ( real ale whenever possible). – What a commitment. Here is one I stumbled into ( not literally) a few months ago. At that time I could not stay for any refreshments and had no camera but vowed to return with camera and test one of the “guest ales” that they have alongside the usual rubbish lagers etc that they always sell. Here are a few shots of the pub – yes it really is a pub.
The pub is on several tiers
Lets look at the ceiling
It is of course an old theatre converted into a pub – got to say I have been in worse pubs ( and theatres – but thats another story) and drunk worse ale. The barman said that they do up to fifty guest ales ( not all at the same time of course) and usually have a choice of about four or five at any one time. I went for ” Ringwood 49er” from the New Forest area
Had to try more than one to check its consistency of course – very palatable. Mrs Wessyman was on coffee – named driver ( by Mr Wessyman). But where in the world is this pub ???
Answer – The Palladium ( wetherspoons) Llandudno
