The Pub!

Accommodating and fuelling the Strawbs machine since 1967.

“As they toured the country, the Strawbs became not only known for their music, but for their astonishing consumption of alcohol. The group’s recollections of those days are more than tinged with an alcoholic haze. Dave Cousins claims they were the biggest drinking group in the country.”

From Rick Wakeman, The Caped Crusader by Dan Wooding, p60

THOU HAST RAISED WITH THINE OWN HAND AND DRUNK WITH THINE OWN MOUTH. Millons of pints have gone over the bar; I cannot tell the number of them, which thou have then passed. Thy habits have decreed a day of happiness in my name. Thou dost pass water and staggerest back untold times to millions and hundreds of thousands of beers; thou settest out in song, and thou steerest thy way across the watery piss to the ale which thou lovest; this thou drinkest in a very little moment of time, and thou dost sink quarts and makest an end of the keg.

Extract from: ‘A hymn of praise to Dave when he walketh in the open door of the tavern.’

’Ere, Landlord, can you put the TV on?

’Ello, ’ello! Looks like some dodgy geezers ’ave started something in the car park!
