The Ufford White LionUfford White Lion  des' dinners 16

The curse of the evil Pubmaster fell upon many of our usual attendees and obviously all you other buggers.  Nevertheless Billy Nomates NaTCH and Spadge enjoyed well-kept pints of Adnams and Charles Wells Bombardier, and partook of chicken & mushroom pies best described as "unremarkable".  Andy, who had been stood up by the current Mrs Andy on their annual lunch date, arrived later for a sandwich.  Conversation ranged from gravestones available on the internet through to Hugh's party and was blissfully free of any mention of Malcolm's watch.

Once Andy had left, the older Billy reminded the younger, shorter Billy how rubbish his web site was.  But the older Billy was then kind enough to chauffeur the younger Billy back to the safe haven of Framlingham where the younger Billy's son was waiting, all alone at the school gate, for his drunken and staggering father to take him (the youngest and shortest Billy of them all) to his after-school chimney sweeping job.  Apologies received from John B & Malcolm (pressure of work and lack of brains). - Spadge  (last visit ↓  subsequent lunch  previous lunch)

Ufford White Lion  des' dinners 5

Despite NaTCH's crap instructions on how to find the White Lion John FH and Spadge, in a silver GT Ginetta thingy, turned up.  OK food, excellent Charles Wells Bombardier and reportedly good Adnams.  NaTCH was served a crap pint of Greene King IPA but it was changed without argument.  Yes, much more pleasant than remembered and worth visiting again.  (first visit  subsequent lunch  previous lunch)
