Stourbridge Arm, September 16th - 18th, camping on the towpath somewhere, bookings now open for NB Cobbett. I shall feed you with hopefully Sue's help and you boys can just sit and enjoy the beer.

Have a walk into town for the real ale pub "Duke William". They also brew their own beer out the back.
Nice pork pies as well!

When's the Stourbridge arm rally this year? Is that the same time? I thought it was later. Black Beauty normally heads out for that one anyway. Count us in.

Nope, just looked at calendar. Count ME in. Probably. John's off gadding elsewhere that week and I may be too. :( The following weekend would have been just perfect...

Well, we expect to be there, and might even let Richard and Sue come with us on Tawny Owl :P subject to the one thing that caveats everything at the moment, house move. I'm hoping we'll have moved well before then but if completion date ends up anywhere near then we may have to back out...

As one who has been drinking proper beer in stourbridge for the last 35 years I find it rather hard to believe the description that the Duke William is Stourbridge's first real ale pub!


For a real black country experience, and Bathams Beer try the Royal Exchange in Enville Street

The Moorings (formerly Barrel Inn) and Heroes remain closed. I think The Mitre, & The Talbot in the High St would be the nearest.

Val has said I should have checked her diary more carefully, she has agreed to dance at Priston Festival on Sunday 18th. Given I'm one of the promoters of this, I'm going to have sheepishly ask if it could go back a week.

Now, how do I get this flea out of my ear? :blink:

Back meaning later, or back meaning earlier? As I have been told off in the Lapworth banter thread for being unsure of my timings, we need to be clear on this one... Later would be most perfect.

To my mind "back" always means later so I'm asking for weekend of 24th/25th, otherwise I'll have to offer a huge chocolate bribe...

Don't talk to me about arses because I am not friends with mine. Trying to deal with a sick and grumpy mother at the moment. Not happy. Looking forward to Friday though. Will deal with banter date when I am reunited with Cobbett and the rest of my life.

Stourbridge rally is normally mid oct. Could we combine with that, or at least do it a week earlier so's not to spoil the fun. Otherwise Val can dance alone and Patrick can pick fleas out of his ear till Xmas.
