The Countryman - Bolam
« on: Nov 23, 2004, 23:32 »
Tonight, Cruella and I ventured out into the fog to find the quiet hamlet of Bolam, near Heighington, and more specifically, the Countryman. Apparently this pub used to be known as the Shoulder of Mutton in days gone by.

We picked up purplelmet and his good woman along the way and must say that the pub was nice and welcoming when we got there, but with very few customers on such a murky night.

The mistake was ordering a starter. They were huge. So huge that none of the four of us could eat our main courses, which were also huge.  The food was excellent however and reasonably priced too.

They had 3 real ales on and we tried the Black Sheep Bitter to start followed by a Pale Ale called Deuchars. Very tasty. For a bar meal it is a good place to visit, but may be difficult to find on a night like tonight.

I'm still unable to eat anything larger than a small rhino following the huge feast with Bossman.
Even the famous Mr Creosote ( sorry, due to Environmental Issues he's now known as Mr Pissy Rubbish Wood Wash )  would have struggled.

Excellent food, excellent beer, passable company !!!!!!!
