Pilgrim sells itself as almost entirely made of “recycled or up-cycled” materials. There are lots of quirky touches like their bar, made of old discarded suitcases, original 30s cinema seating and recycled pallets covering the walls. I like their clock a lot (see below).
This was pub 11 of 19 on our random February blowout. We were only aiming for 8 but got very carried away. Quality will suffer, sorry. I’m not proud of the achievement, it was stupid.
It’s far from unique in the beer department, jumping shamelessly onto the “craft beer” bandwagon. Would you consider these to be “craft”: Innis & Gunn Lager and Original, Guinness, Pilgrim Lager, Blue Moon and Sharp’s Orchard cider? I’ve no idea who makes their lager for them.
The bottled beers are closer to the mark: Barney’s, Black Isle, Stewart’s, Williams Brothers. There’s also your typical “Swedish Cider”, but at least one I’ve never heard of, Herrljunga.
I’ve no record of the price of the round.
Just snacks really, but a bit more than just crisps. They apparently only serve stromboli from Breadwinners. How eccentric!
