Grapes (Beefeater), Hayes, London   1 comment

The sign for the Grapes is gone, but it is still the Beefeater.  My auto-fill on the Google search engine kept trying to give me The Grapes of Wrath; Google is spooky sometimes.

 

This is what I expected to find, although the interior and clientele have probably been the same for decades

They have real ale (London Pride) but they really don’t know what they are doing with it.  I sat near three tables of lads out together for steak dinner but I think during brain development they were deprived rich sources of protein.  And, what do you expect to find in a dimwit pub other than a dimwit paper with a dimwit cover story:

Tom Joad would have had a speech:

“Wherever there’s a poorly kept ale pumped sloppily through dirty cellar lines, I’ll be there. Wherever there’s a nipple shot in a red top tabloid newspaper, I’ll be there. I’ll be in the way guys yell with their mouths full of potatoes. And when the people are eatin’ the stuff brought out in portions larger than needed to sustain their already-too-large frames, Ma, I’ll be there, too.”
