Climbing up the aerial
Gannin here this week with work. Should I just stay in the Premier inn or is there life there
Bought my first round, (at age 14 - that cloudy fucking cider they had + merrydown + black ), smoked my first weed spliff in the 'garden' and developed an obsession with Hawkwind; all around 1981/82. Strangely, I also met the future Mrs FA there. Though she was the older sister of one of my schoolmates, was already a regular (at 17) and completely blanked us all. In fact, istr that we were under strict instructions not to go anywhere near her or any of her cool biker mates.
The Woolpack used to the hippy/biker pub of choice before the Prince of Orange. It got raided in the early eighties - if I remember correctly, the landlord got sent down as a load of acid was found behind the bar.The Woolpack is still a decent pub , big real ale selection . A bit of “ an old mans pub “ but since I am an old man I fit right in , nice beer garden too

A pub crawl down Moulsham St will take in a few ok pubs and steer you clear of problems .
A micro pub included .
Generally further away from the railway station the better it gets .
So many Curry houses it’s tough to single one out .
Prince of Orange?
Top pub back in the day I got invited to a meet up with people I’d met a gig. Turned into a sunny weekend caper with stuff and camping and stuff
