Shall We Go For One?

Good pubs are sacred spaces

To gather people in

Log fire in ingle nook

Tonic for your gin

Proper pint to welcome you

Sit and have your fill

Solve the problems of the world

Remedy for ill


Back room at the Oxford Arms

Pint of Guinness then

Real ale in the Greyfriar

Chawton’s blessed den

Punch Bowl with my father

Lovely Lancashire

The Chetham Arms in Chapeltown

Where old Nat liked a beer


Many a happy evening

I sat inside a pub

Just the joy of being there

And of course the sup

A blessed institution

Where conversations thrive

And good ale keeps on coming

And then go home alive

+ The Air Balloon pub in Gloucestershire is being demolished to make a new road. Ah well.
