King’s Arms, Wantage, Oxfordshire   1 comment

There’s not much better than dashing into a pub like the King’s Arms on a wet day.  Unfinished and ancient wood flooring, leaded glass windows, and a good choice of beverages at the bar.  I only wish it had been cold as well as wet out so the fireplace would have been ablaze.  No internet and on my visit no other electronic distractions, it is idyllic.

I had been lucky in that the heaviest of the rain just missed me throughout the run (first on the way to the Bay Tree, then again at the Lord Nelson, now — almost — here).  The time it took for my Guinness to settle allowed the rain to abate and I braved the garden just long enough to change into my dry shirts and notice the drizzle had once again become sheets.  Retreating back into the pub, the bartender remarked on how strange the weather has been.  If that isn’t the English cherry on top of this quintessentially British dessert, I don’t know what is.  Find it here.
