I must admit I have been unfaithful lately.
You see, I love my music, especially folk music live.
I have started a new folk singaround club at the Tap & Spile in York.
I was in there today, thinking how much more friendly that pub is than most SS pubs. It is dog friendly throughout.
They have a juke box, but it isn't overpowering, and plays random songs now and again. They have Sky Sports, but it isn't overwhelming. The screens are subtly placed and the sound is never too high.
They always have five good guest real ales. OK, they are not cheap, but you get what you pay for. Also they run a loyalty scheme which brings the price down to a reasonable ?2.79pp.
They get a lot of custom.
The management are relaxed and friendly. They are not worried about being suddenly sacked by the owners.
They do good food. I booked a really nice buffet for the folk club, for cost.
But, to cap it all, you get a full pint every time!
I won't desert SS pubs entirely, but so far, over the last three months, the T&S has had about ?300 of my pension that Humphrey could have had.
Is there a point to be made?https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-New-Acoustic-Singaround/612323005475834
