A Night out at the Pub

I am not really a pub person. In my younger days I quite enjoyed an evening with my friends, but somehow I have lost the taste. I do not like pubs that play loud music and I try to avoid large crowds of people. On top of this I don't drink, so a visit to a pub for me is something completely different. My friend and her boyfriend like to go now and again to a local pub in Romford, the Wheatsheaf, and asked if I would join them. I thought why not, something completely different, so on a Friday evening I joined the local yokels in the pub.

Wheatsheaf Pub, Romford

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.


  1. Looks like a really nice place! I love going out with friends and family. It's nice to relax with good food, drinks and most important..good conversation and laughs! Have a great week!

  2. Looks like a nice pub. I rarely go to pubs myself these days, unless it's an evening out with the team from work, but that's not often.

  3. A fantastic post Pat,loved all of the photos too.

    Can't remember the last time I went to a pub. Must be about thirty years ago I think.

  4. Looks quite nice, Pat. Most pubs are restaurants these days or, as you say, noisy music/TV bars. Glad you enjoyed this one anyway.
