We were in the smaller saloon bar which suited me fine. The usuals were there for a Friday evening, who my friends sort of knew from their previous visits. Not too noisy and I felt quite at home. It had a sort of olde worlde charm, so I made myself comfortable with a diet coke. I noticed the customary photo of the queen on the wall, otherwise the decorations were mainly photos of old aircraft.
It was a pleasant evening and I had an interesting conversation with one of the locals whose son also lived and worked in Switzerland. He had often been to Switzerland on visits. It's a small world sometimes.
