The Globe, Swindon   2 comments

We are moving house from Ferndale to a spot more-or-less equidistant from the Beehive, the Castle, and the Globe (which had been shuttered every time I passed it back when I used Eastcott and Prospect hills for speed work).  Exploring the new neighbourhood I found it open and full of builders talking about various contracts they’ve had with infamous prisons–Dartmoor, Shepton Mallet, the recently closed Wellingborough…odd eavesdropping to do here.

The building is one of those rare cases that look promising outside but completely modernised within.  The floors are laminates, the walls are pristine new plasterboard, the bar itself is fairly prefabricated (does Ikea have a speciality shop for the drinks trade?).  But, it seemed a right friendly house and they had football on two tellies and a large pool table.  And, Doom Bar on tap for 3 quid so what’s not to like?

The holiday 'what's on' board is still up, but we'll keep an eye out for interesting announcements
