Angel Hotel, Coleford, Gloucestershire   Leave a comment

Angel Hotel Coleford

In a dry shirt and clean socks and fed and rehydrated after the 36 mile run I had 30 minutes to kill ahead of the bus back to Gloucester.  There could be worse things — or less expected ones — than popping into the Angel Hotel for a beer.

It is a real hotel, too, but the bar area is more like a Wild West saloon straight out of Whiskey Row or Tombstone with the possible exception that the denizens were almost all middle-aged English/Welsh border dwellers.

The music made me laugh since, prior to acquiring the Cornershop earworms, I had inexplicably had the line “I need TV when I got T Rex” repeating in my head for miles with the music to “Brown Eyed Girl” running behind it; the first song after I sat down with my M & B Mild was Mott the Hoople’s version of “All the Young Dudes” which was followed by Van Morrison doing NOT “Brown Eyed Girl” but “And It Stoned Me” (a fine substitute).
