Not sure whether I really want reminding of that day!  Well, alright, it was great but could have done without the running for a train, oh, and nearly falling down, etc., etc.

Off topic: Mark, I went to Conwy on Wednesday for usual visit to Albion.  When we got there, it was closed!  But, don't despair, only for one day for 'essential maintenance', whatever that may be.  Their sister pub, The Bridge, was also closed and, looking thorugh the window, it seems to have been totally gutted (believe it's going to re-open as a sort of burger bar/pub!).  So, we spent the afternoon in The Bank of Conwy.  Plenty of money has been spent on this job and it is quite nice but not especially pubby.  Four real ales from local breweries, the Heavy Industries Diawl Bach (Little Devil) was nice at 3.8%. Typical modern US-type, with Amarillo, Cascade, Citrus and Columbus hops but well drinkable. I ignored the keg/craft pumps.

For a taste of a real pub, last night, I went to the Red Lion in Old Colwyn - put a note 'in your north Wales visit diary Thursday night, Red Lion' . Super proper pub, nice crowd but not crowded, eight real ales, mixed between old, established and micro's, all at £2.50/pint on Thursday.  Perfect!  Even better, as the landlord of the Cross Keys was playing pool and bought me a pint!
