Whenever you feel
You’re punching above your weight:
“You’re meant to be here.”

Name: Hardy & Hanson’s Kimberley Bitter
Type: bitter
Venue: Jude the Obscure for fish and chips lunch

Review/notes: Fairly standard bitter, not a bad meal though.

For years I have referred to Oxford newbies as ‘Judes.’  They (we) all do this thing where the first few days we wander around with an absolute air of pride, trepidation, awe…it is overwhelming even coming here directly after more than a year of the same at Cambridge.  It doesn’t happen to everyone, but those of us that it does happen to are also highly likely to be the ones that are broken on the wheel of Oxford…so lift your glasses to the Judes of the world.

Oh, coming back from Italy at Stansted, the immigration guy hassled a bunch of people ahead of us then, as we approached, said, “you two look like you’re meant to be here,” and stamped our books before a brief chat.
