The Hallowed Turf.

We have had a little work done !
 Last week saw the refurbishment of our beer garden, with no expense spared, we have had an irrigation system installed and brand new turf laid, as you can see is was a big job. It should  be ready to use in about six weeks. We are proud of the fact that we have one of the best beer gardens in London, and are keen to keep it that way.
It would have been easier to deck the whole lot, in fact somebody even suggested AstroTurf ! - can't remember who that was -perish the thought.

So it took five days of hard labour and are we extremely happy with the results. All we have to do now is ... nothing, something I am very good at, or so I am reliably informed.

Where's my grass gone dad ?

Half way there !

Snowfall, December 2010

Red Lion from Elm Grove Road corner.
 Just in case the weather is not getting you down enough and you are not longing for lazy summer days, hog roasts & BBQs in our garden, as depicted on earlier posts in our blog. Here are some snaps of the pub during last year's snow, oh what short memories we have ! As one of my locals told me, he likened it to a visit form the "in laws", great to see them, but can't wait to see them go - or words to that effect !

Snow covered decking
