This Saturday we tried two new pubs that had been recommended to us. The first one was a micro pub called The Ginger Giraffe. It has been opened in an old bus garage not too far from where we live. Outside they have a large model Giraffe. Inside is set out really well, quite rustic. They sell lots of different gins as well as real ale. They also have a small games room with a pool table. You can’t say that about many micro pubs. And live music on some weekends.
The second pub we tried was the Boat Inn at Pinxton Wharf in Derbyshire. Also a very nice pub. And sitting close to the fire on a cold winter’s day was very nice. The meal above was not my meal. I had a vegan burger with the works. This was my partner’s meal. Liver and Onions. He said it was very nice and home cooked as well. The pub has just had a lot of money spent on it doing it up. Well worth a visit.
