Two pubs from the seaside town of Ballydavid, Ireland. We stayed in the first one and it was absolutely on the beach. Great pub, restaurant, and accommodations. Then a neighboring pub just a few meters from the first also in Nallydavid and then the last is the O'Donoghue's in Killarney, Ireland.

And yes, Ye Olde Kings Head in Chester, has the correct date, built in 1622!

Another pub, just up the road from the one above (and in such a small village too).
B&W version in Dedicated B&W thread (not that there's a lot of colour in this one :rolleyes: ).

Freo.Social
by Andrew Priest, on Flickr

Freo.Social describes itself as “Freo newest oldest venue” as it is located in the now restored Artillery Drill Hall. Freo.Social is both a bar and a brewery. The Otherside Brewery is located behind the bar and is a five-hectolitre brewery.

The Artillery Drill Hall (fmr) was built for the volunteer guard in Fremantle in 1896, who were responsible for civil defence, and was used as a training facility during World War II.

Awesome photo and pub. Really enjoy these you've posted.
I imagine there's some very nice woodwork inside this beauty.
Have you any photos of its interior?
Sadly not.
My wife reminded me that we once went into the Kings Head when we were "courting".
As it's our 45th wedding anniversary today I can't seem to recall that particular occasion (and no, I wasn't too drunk to remember!)

From a few years ago, a couple of bars in the "Uptown" district of Oklahoma City.

This first one is the Pump, a converted gas station. Large patio area, very popular with the hipster crowd. The wife and I think of ourselves as "the cute old couple" hanging out with the young'uns. :)

Next is "The Bunker", a very cool Cold War-themed place. Lots of vintage TVs playing propaganda footage from the '50s. Owned by the same couple who own the Pump. Great people.

Another one from my archives.
This is the Landoger Trow in Bristol.
It opened in 1664 and is named after the local flat-bottomed boats that used to sail up the River Avon into Bristol.
Sadly, it closed for business in 2019 and was still Locked-up when we walked past just before the Lock-down.

This one is a blast from the past (from 2003).
At the time this was the only pub in Shrewsbury (and one of only a few in the whole country) that was smoke free.
It's such a lovely quaint place and served excellent home-cooked meals.
It was a real pleasure to dine there without someone on the next table blowing smoke across and stinking the place (and your clothes) out.
Thankfully all pubs in the UK are now smoke-free and we enjoy using them for the occasional meal out.

We seem to be having a Bristol theme going on at the moment, so here's our favourite pub, alongside the Floating Harbour.
I guess it's one of the original dockside pubs, and while there are plenty of trendy new drinking establishments in the area, this one has kept it's traditional look and feel.
It looks pretty unprepossessing from the outside, but the charm is all on the inside. It's obviously a pub for the locals, but we've been welcomed there each time we've popped in for a meal, when staying at the nearby caravan site. Thankfully two of the regulars didn't chase us out when we disturbed them in the saloon bar.

Interestingly - I was thinking of those dreadful smoke filled places (but in NZ), in the 70s, 80's when everything you wore when out for a meal or a drinks had to go in the washing machine when you arrived home. I wonder how many of us have lung damage from all that passive smoking?

View attachment 761900Last horse salon - Grand Hotel - Kookynie - GQDT 002 by Andrew Priest, on Flickr

When we arrived at the Grand Hotel in Kookynie (Western Australia's oldest hotel apparently, being built in 1902) there was no sign of this horse. We wondered around a bit and upon our return to the hotel and the car, there was our friend, patiently waiting at the front door for the hotel to open. There was nobody in sight and no harness or the like on the horse.

Kookynie today is pretty much a ghost town with the hotel being the only aspect recalling the days of the gold rush era in the early 1900's.

We visited as part of our July 2019 father/son drive of the 1,000 km Golden Quest Discovery Trail in the goldfields of Western Australia.
Love the minimum dress requirements :)

From a couple of years ago. Martinborough Hotel, affectionately known as the "Marty" by locals. It was very run down when we grew up there in the fifties and sixties. Then someone bought it, and spent a couple of million to turn it into quite the place. I have been in the suites/rooms upstairs, and they are luxurious. In NZ.
