    I've driven through Long Stratton a few times. Never had the inclination to stop, chips or no chips.

    Yes indeed. When I travel in by bus, I go past the Firs (Tesco), the Falcon (Co-op), The Magpie (boarded up), the Cat & Fiddle (good riddance!) and what used to be Hunter's squash club and Fat Pauly's, both redeveloped and unrecognisable.
    I used to manage the Branford Arms for the best part of a year and the Cygnet (RIP) was just around the corner - and a total dive <yikes>

    That's a shockingly long list of closures. I can't believe how many of those I've been in over the years, and how many I didn't know had closed.

    Now in the Glasshouse having a pint of Edinburgh Castle - much darker than I usually drink, but very nice. ☺

    Just back from E. Runton Fishing Boat, pleasant walk there and back, several turnstones and oystercatchers on Cromer carnival field helped <ok>
    And Woodfordes 'Tundra' (blonde, 4.6%) at £2.50 a pint helped the general ambiance :)

    We went into the White Hart in Hingham the other day. Girlfriend took me there a couple of years ago for a Birthday meal, and was fantastic. We popped in for a lunch the other weekend. Again, food was stunning!! They also have local ales on tap, lovely looking place inside. Looks nothing from the outside, but I highly recommend.
