Linton Falls – Fantastic Local Attraction – Linton

After a not very filling meal at Grassington House, we headed to the wonderful Forester's Arms where we enjoyed a single pint, well I did anyway, being ever fearful of the next days' cycling. Once we had drunk enough sugary liquid calories and yeast water (cider and...

Grassington House – Triumphant Feast Grassington

Oh me oh my, this was probably the best meal on the Way of the Roses trip. We arrived to the Craiglands hotel in Grassington, unpacked and cleaned up then headed to dinner. Our fellow guests were shocked that we were eating there, as it seems to have a reputation for...

The New Inn – Clapham – Terrific Mid Ride Meal

Prior to an astonishing hill coming out of Settle, we ate a lovely lunch at the New Inn in Clapham, in the Craven district of North Yorkshire. The lunch itself was high quality and we were very grateful to the staff at the New Inn for letting us faff about with our...

5 Favourites – July 2021

Those in close contact with me will be aware that I am squarely in Africa musically. I have been there for some weeks and am having trouble leaving the Lagos rabbit hole but I shall endeavour to provide a wider ambit of beautiful covers. Some of these will of course...

Tremors – Fun Silly Nonsense Film 1990

Let it be known that I adore Kevin Bacon. This film is perhaps not his best (Footloose might qualify), but it is the only one which he has watched again, according to the man himself. This film follows the story of handymen Val (Bacon) and Earl (Fred Ward) who find...

The Secret Bistrot – Well Kept Secret Morecambe

Having wandered around Morecambe a little, been told to f off by a local, and escaped to Lancaster, we returned to Morecambe for a spot of dinner. The Secret Bistrot is not really that secret. The name is emblazoned across the window above the Palatine pub, where the...

Fela with Ginger Baker, Live! Album of the Month June 2021

Where to even begin with this magnificent album? 1971, collaboration with Cream drummer Ginger Baker, which Fela pronounces most wonderfully. Fela Kuti has a rule that he would never play songs in his albums during live shows, which frustrated fans to no end but is a...

Nibble Hull – Excellent Marina-Adjacent Eatery

Would the reader believe that by the time I got round to writing this review, I was back in Hull. I returned to Hull after a beautiful 400km ride from Morecambe to Bridlington to Hull, with a brief interlude in Knaresborough. Anyway I digress. Nibble was an absolute...

Fargo – Politest Kidnapping Ever Attempted – 1996

The brothers Coen have succeeded in putting together a thrilling kidnap mystery. Set in snowy rural Minnesota, Fargo tells the story of a botched kidnapping plot hatched by an incompetent used car salesman, Jerry Lundegaard (Macy), which is painstakingly and politely...

Never For Ever – Kate Bush – Album In the Month

Have you noticed that I go through phases of music? My most recent phase has been Afro beats and Afro funk but I am rather passionately in support of Kate Bush and feel that I must include this as June's album in the month. Never For Ever was Kate's 1980 superb...
