Druids, Rickmansworth, Hertfordshire   Leave a comment



Although dismissed by a former manager as just another fizzy beer bar, Druids had a fairly impressive line of cask pumps.  I was knackered from the week, the cloying illness, and the lack of sustenance (save for a cup of coffee in the morning and pints at the Sportsman and the Halfway House earlier on the run) so I went for the sweet nourishment of Old Rosie cider and soon felt revived.  My bartender had to keep asking for more seasoned help.  “First day?” I asked as he handed me my change.  “First hour,” he replied, nodding my way and adding, “you should count that until I get my feet under me.”  I already had, but I am a suspicious/paranoid bastard.



There seemed to be a Two Tone set playing on the radio but it might just have been an 80’s station.  A dog wandered through seeking — and getting — attention at every stool but, upon sniffing my shoes, she moved on abruptly.  The cheek.  I left on this insult to the strains of “Too Much Too Young.”
