Thursday 22nd December – visit to Squires Musters, Micro Pub, Annesley Woodhouse.
Meeting at Hucknall bus stop on Torkard Way/Titchfield Street, eleven of us caught the Three’s A bus at 6.55pm to Forest Road Annesley, making full use of our bus passes.
We arrived at Squires Musters to find a quite small micro pub, being fairly well attended by the locals and surprisingly a further trio from Hucknall. After some time standing, we eventually found seating and proceeded to enjoy the various ales on offer, all at a very reasonable price of £3.20p a pint. Having been previously forewarned of our visit the landlady kindly provided us with a variety of cheeses and crackers to sample, which was greatly appreciated by all.
We caught the bus back at 9.45pm (thankful that the bus was still running and on time) and just had time for a last pint at our local Wetherspoons before being picked up by our various modes of transport.
An excellent way to end a very active year, and my own personal thanks to all members of The Real Ale Group for their good and entertaining company and some extremely interesting discussions.
See you all in 2023.
