Going to stay in Bridlington for a few days soon. Any good gastropub type places to visit nearby?
Never been, but this looks worth a try.
Went to a Bridlington in 1989 for an army mates stag do and was chatting up some bird when a web fingered local walked over and punched me in the face because he heard my southern accent.
Shit hole that makes Scarborough look good.
I’m a southerner not a fucking strayan.
Regardless of origins, I can’t imagine a bunch of drunken squaddies dive bombing the locals would have gone down well.
More likely it was his mum and if I took her back with me he wasn’t getting laid that night.
Appeared in court there once when I was a student - breach of the peace - got off. But I didn’t think it would be a place I’d ever revisit or recommend to friends and family. From memory I can’t believe they’d entertain such a thing as a “gastropub” but then again Hull is City of Culture so what do I know?
Hull - long story as to why I ended up in Brid…
It’s a strange old place - we went down for the start of the Tour of Yorkshire cycling. Every Day Is Like Sunday kept going through my head
Didn’t find any decent Gastropub type places in the centre but our Landlady said there was a very good pub - The Ship Inn if I remember correctly which is a bit out of town towards Sewerby.
Did you get some greased tea to share?
Dare I ask what that is ?
Is it mandatory that you go there?
If so, just be careful. The women can be stranger than the Funzie molls
As for food, I would recommend a suitcase full of your favourite tinned treats
I don’t know Bridlington specifically, but it is hard to believe it impossible, to at least find good fish 'n chips, in a part of the world generally famed for such delights?
Your right Chris - there was an abundance of chippies to be fair
Well, you mentioned Everyday Is Like Sunday…
‘Everyday is like Sunday
"Win yourself a cheap tray"
Share some greased tea with me,
Everyday is silent and grey’
