A-Z Challenge 2017
If someone says they are going fishin’, they actually mean they are off to the pub! It started when Baker Ben's wife barred him from the Fish Inn for a month because he was drinking too much. So, he’d gather up his rod and tackle, say he was going fishin’ and make his way here!
The Fish Inn dates back to 1640 and was used by smugglers. They dug a tunnel from the cellar to Bustleton. Every Halloween we have a candlelit party down there. It's home to a ghost, Jeremiah who's very nice but a bit vague . One year Sid ‘Potty’ Potter dressed as a ghost for the party. He was so realistic, Jerimiah ran off in fright!
They have some great craft beers here. Amber Ale; golden and malty. Leaping Frog; dark and bitter. Flighty Flora; blond and seductive. No, that's not a beer, that's her over there! Hi Flora.
This garden is Dapper Dan’s pride and joy. Let’s grab a bench. Oh look, here comes Arthur. Hello, Arthur, you’ve met my new friends I believe.
I said, you’ve met my new friends’
I’ll pop inside and gets some drinks. What would you like Arthur? He heard that all right!
Tomorrow I'm hoping for a sunny day because we are off to the Village Green
