Subject: RE: Favorite pubs - tell us about yours
I Feel I must tell you about the "Jug Inn" Chapel Hadlesea North Yorkshire Just off the M62 near Selby The bar and the lounge are smaller than the average room in a normal house. If you are 5 foot 10 you will probably hit your head on one of the hundreds of jugs hanging from the low ceiling, but If you want a giant meal at very reasonable prices this is the place to be, (Try a Desperate Dan Pie) My advice is not to get the large mixed grill, you won't finish it unless there about six others to share it with. The ales sold are of the real ale type with a number of guest ales always on hand ( The Jug won CAMERA real ale pub award last year) But the highlight of the week is on Wednesday nights when a group of music makers get into the lounge and play from about 8-30 till closing time approx. 11-30 ish It is not a folk club more of a musicians session but expect anything from Beatles to O'Carolin The session is very friendly with no prima donas and everyone is made welcome but if you want to sing expect a full orchestra backing from everyone else. So if Big Mick comes over for a trip to the UK we will arrange a session in his honour any night he wants to go there. If any other catters are in the area remember you are most welcome any Wednesday. Cheers Bill
