Pubs!

#1
Well ,what with the recent introduction of 24 hr drinking in god ol blighty i thought it appropriate to appeal to my fellow arrsers and find out where those 24hr establishments are, that is in relation to where we are based. i heard that the railway in blandford is now 24hr, can this be verified??

I just drove past what used to be a smashing traditional old pub. I have in the past enjoyed many an evening in its pleasant and comfortable atmosphere. It has however been refurbished and is now a thing of sharp lines and minimalist taste. It's called Barcelona Bar. What was wrong with The Fleece?

The landlord of one of the Balndford pubs (Railway?) was on Radio 4 this morning. He had stayed open until 4am, although he had to stop serving between 2300 and 0001 because the new law didn't kick in 'til midnight.

What, The Fleece in Richmond ? FFS Whats that all about then? Is the chippy still next door?? Best chip butty ever. WRT THe Railway, it won't be open 24 hrs, it'll just seem like it... Although a civvy mate of mine drinks in there because he can't stand the rest of town. The Kings has gone down the sh*tter since I left. There only used to be 3 of us squaddies went in there and it was mint.

No. Fleece in a village called Lindley.

Thank Fcuk for that. Some things should remain sacred, and turning Squaddie Pubs into Poncey Winebars is a no no

I heard it too and it was indeed the Railway. Apparently they served coffee and soft drinks between 2320 (end of drinking up time) and midnight and still had 30 people in there to buy drinks again at 0001.

Dam right!! I went away on tour and the perfectly good squaddie pub i left behind was turned into a sh*t winebar when i returned!!

yes i can verify that the railway is indeed open 24 hours.

right oh , thats blandford covered. what about york?bath?nuneaton?catterick?aldershot? salisbury? calling all arrsers in the uk , we need to "locate and name " those establishments that are now open 24hrs , there must be at least one pub in each garrison which is open! .
 
#15
Oh i can also vouch for the fact that the Choughs is now open till 0130 and tiffs is open till whenever they get told to shut by the manager who's worried nobody will go to the spot if they have somewhere else to drink (officially i think it's 0400).

cheers bull , it would be good to have an "arrsers pubs handbook" so when filling out posting prefs we can take into consideration which pubs are open 24hrs and if they are any good! what do you reckon ?

I had this thought a few months ago sort of producing a posting guide that told people actually what they want to know about a unit. Not ooooh it's shit the co's a throbber etc etc but where's good on the lash, best place to pull etc etc.
 
#18
well what do you think about getting it started? its a bit difficult what with us being in germany but we could do the "european edition" thoughts??
 
#19
dont think it would be to difficult to create the 'posting handbook' simply request info on all postings on a thread, set up an exclusive e-mail and let others do the work. everyone remains Anonymous as to who they are and what unit except the person makeing the guide.
