Oh well, while you're in the area, nip over to The Mermaid Inn on St Mary's, The Isles of Scilly.

It's gorgeous. And so close to the sea that it actually smells of it.
Actually I haven't been there in years, so it might not be all that any more. Just noticed on the googlemap pic that there are letters missing from the name on the front, so it might not even be open any more!

Another fave of mine is The Mole and Chicken in Easington, Bucks.
Easy going, relaxed with very good food and the locals don't resent the foodies or vice versa. It's perched on top of a hill and has really great views of the surrounding countryside. Watching the sun go down with a cold pint in your hand is a wonderful experience.

The Mole and Chicken looks nice but the other link just leads to a generic map showing most of Europe.

just by the way.. Mrs. and I have just booked a weekend to Eastbourne.. there is a village fete going on nearby that she wants to visit ( thinking possible retirement place nearby ) .. so'll I'll get to test out a few new pubs.

I never have had much luck with posting images
If you're interested, type in Mermaid Inn, The Bank, St Mary's, Isles of Scilly.
They don't have a website, but at least you'll see the habourside location.

Oh and one of the mods or UT will clean up the other thread, as long as no-one responds to it.
And if they do, I'll make sure it goes down on their permanent record.

An old watering hole of mine when I'm working in Paris: Guinness Tavern

When I'm home in Brest: The Blind Piper. Sorry, no website for this one.

Don't spend much time in watering holes these days. One of my favorite is this quiet little place that was right around the corner from work. Twenty years ago, I courted the woman who would become my bride by meeting her there after work for drinks. It was perfect. They kept bringing free bowls of pretzels, the beer was fairly cheap, and it was one of the few quiet places around. You could actually talk.

Cafe Mozart. It's got a deli in front with specialty food for all the German expats. Restaurant/bar in back.

Well, it's nice to see Google Maps Street View still doesn't work w/FF 3.6 (I ain't gonna like FF 4, so, I wait). Yay Google Maps.
