Royal Oak, Painswick, Gloucestershire   1 comment

Royal Oak Painswick sign

A stop for a couple of photos outside allowed the landlord of the Royal Oak time to prop open the outside door ahead of our meeting on opposite sides of the bar in the Doris Lounge.  I got one of the rugby themed ales and was going to retire to warm my rain-soaked corpus by the roaring fire but he seemed eager to chat so I stayed by the taps, instead.

He’s an interesting fellow originally from Bristol and working the last 50 odd years as a chef more-or-less all over the place.  Disinterested in the internet (as proven in the run write-up for today), he is unlikely to see this but I hope anyone of you that subsequently visits this fine LOCALS’ pub (to differentiate it from the Falcon across the churchyard which is a fine TOURISTS’ gastropub) will pass along my thanks for the sparkling conversation and warm welcome.
