Propping up The Chip bar...

I once heard someone say that the parents go to the big pub at The Chip while the youngsters head off to the other lively bars round about!
How rude! ;-)
But maybe there's some truth there. I mean, The Chip is a firm local favourite - right? There's no music, so you can actually have a good old blether without having to shout. The wines of the month are worth a visit, just for that!
Then there's the Furstenburg - draught... Oh Lordy! I wish I could forget the 1st time I tried (and fell victim) to Fursty in The Chip!
But it's stuck in my memory, and will NEVER leave...
I'll share the basics with you... There was a big group night out planned, and we were to meet at The Chip. By chance, I bumped into fellow party-goer Roddy - 2 hours before kick-off.
We decided that we'd just go to The Chip "for one". Let's just say that by the time the others turned up, the bar was propping US up, and we were sent staggering home - in shame!
I know I'm not alone in this 'adventure', and it was fun at the time!
We love The Big Pub at The Chip. For oldies? I don't know and I don't really care, 'cos its my favourite, whatever!
