Chelle Y.

I have not seen you around for awhile. Now, I know why!

Great pictures!

susiej

Wow... you make me want to go on vacation. I think... I think I've been to the Silver Cross.

Robin

Welcome back! Sounds like you've done a pub crawl extraordinaire. I love the really old ones, so much history has seeped into the walls with the fumes of the drink...

Michelle

Wow, sounds like you had a great trip. Some of those pubs look like homes. Great pictures. Happy TT!!

SJ Reidhead

No wonder you've not been around! I think I hate you. Nah. We don't have these wonderful inns and things here. I've discovered a wonderful system of old "Wild West" hotels, but nothing like those wonderful inns of the UK. I stayed in on in Romsey that was about 500 years old. For some reason I think I stayed at the Red Lion, or at least stopped there.

Glad to see you're back.

On a Limb with Claudia

I wondered what happened to you. I thought you might have gotten lost on holiday! Sounds like you did have a wonderful time! yea!

Of course, while you were gone, I had to resort to my second in line for the "what does this mean?" english person. (Half past six) You haven't been usurped though! :)

SandyCarlson

You've made me thirsty for a pint of beer. Or six. Great photos!

Wylie Kinson

I love the names of the pubs and places. They sound right out of armchair mysteries...
"A Grisly Death in Chipping Snibble"
"The Suspicious Preacher of Fenny Compton"
"Murder in the Drabbet Smock"

:)

Lilibeth

It so much makes me wish I were strolling around over there...just to look at the buildings if nothing else. I particularly liked the looks of the Blue Boar. It sounds so British.

Lori

Beautiful pics...the houses all have so much character. Id love to go there some day. Happy TT my friend...glad to have you back:)

Mary Emken


Hi!!
Welcome back. Sounds like you had quite a time. The pictures are great. If you and your wife ever make it to my part of the woods,I'll take you to colonial Williamsburg. I'm sure you will enjoy it. The whole town is done up like the early 16 houndreds. It's quite interesting to see how people lived back then. Glad to see your back.

Lisa

I love those pictures! If I ever venture across the pond, I will definitely go find those! I love the look of Bure Farm, it doesn't even look like a pub!

Happy TT

pussreboots

It's nice to see you posting again! Happy TT.

Janet

Oh, I love the shot of The Dun Cow! Such a pretty place. "Chipping Snibble"??? LMAO!

Ann Bruce

Been wondering where you were!

Shaunesay

Welcome back!

They all have such character! Sadly when we were in England we were only there for about 3 days (and it was, it pains me to say over 20 years ago now, ouch!) when I was 12, so I don't think we made it to too many places. We saw Stonehenge, and made it to Windsor Castle, and we just missed the changing of the guard at Buckingham, but then managed to walk out of an alleyway just as the Queen's motorcade was driving by! We thought that was pretty funny, all our lives here in the US and none of us has ever seen one of our presidents in person, and then go to England for 2 days and see the Queen by accident!

I love this post! I'm sending the link to my father-in-law who is originally from England. He is taking two of his grandaughters there for two weeks later this month. I bet he knows some of these places. Great TT today!

Winter

Welcome back, Nicholas! Very, very cool TT. I LOVE that last pub. I just wanna go there! Happy TT!

Wacky Mommy

Hey -- fun! Happy Thursday.

Nicole Austin

Welcome back, Nicholas. Great pictures! I hope to go and see the pubs for myself one day.

Sue

Now I'm thirsty! And its 7am!!!! Great pics and thanks for sharing them :)

Karen

What a great post! *sigh* Makes me feel even more homesick! Thanks for stopping by mine and welcome back!

Shannon H.

Great photos! I enjoyed reading this post!

cajunvegan

Beer me! I just came back from another interview. This could really be The One! I am thrilled!

This sounds like a fantastic holiday! We missed you in Thursday Thirteen land.

The Gal Herself

While I realize that if the 3 Wishes is good enough for George Michael, it should be good enough for me, my favorite photo is still The Drabbet Smock. The name alone won me over! Best wishes to your daughter and her young man, and thanks for visiting my TT.

Great post and great pix. Happy TT!

Briggie

My daughter received a college scholarship that included a semester at Wroxton College (years ago). She loved England and hopes to go back again someday. I'll ask if she ever visited any of these spots!

marcia @ joyismygoalm

ooooohhh I am sooo wanting to go there--- what lovely shots, what lovely homes, and shops and lush plantings --I am so happy for you

mitchypoo

It's like deja vu! ;) I'd love to go to Europe some time soon. I'd love to visit pubs and taste the local fare. Really enjoyyour blog.

Celticlibrarian

Welcome home! It sounds like you had a nice trip. I'm quite intrigued by the bigger-on-the-inside pub. What a random way to employ Time Lord technology. ;)

Great pictures, by the way.

Di

You are my kind of traveler! My husband and I love to spend time in bars and pubs when we travel...local ones, not tourist traps. As a matter of fact, one of our favorite places in Paris was an English pub near our hotel!!!

Denise

OK, I'm officially jealous. I've traveled all over Continental Europe, but never made it to England. *sigh* I really wanna go, but my dh is still in love with Germany. Not that I don't love Germany, too, but occasionally I want to go someplace new.

Thanks for the wonderful pics.

Happy TT!

Darla

Welcome back! It looks as though you had a wonderful trip!

Bella Mocha

Welcome back! You've been missed!
I'm very impressed by your amount of pub visits...there's really nothing like an English pub and it's one thing we really miss here, but on our recent trip back we only got to 2 different pubs, albeit a number of times each! They were lovely though..old-fashioned with low ceilings, low beams and huge fireplaces...sigh.
I love the name...Chipping Snibble! You didn't make it up, did you?!!

Glad to see you're back. Bella:)

Matthew James Didier

FANTASTIC PUBS! Sue and I SO NEED to get there... so many pubs, so little time...

Lisa Andel

We've got a restaurant named the Unicorn a couple of blocks from where I live.

Not the same place though. ;-)

Alice Audrey

So that's where you've been. I missed you.

I love all these pictures. It gives me the feeling of actually being there.

misty w

Great list and pictures. Wonderful TT. Have a great weekend.

DB

I don't think I recognize any but I'm still jealous!! Which did you think I'd know?

Haley-O

Ohhh, cute pubs! REALLY cute pubs. How I loved London....!

Tina

Oh how fun! I would love to spend time going to Pubs in England! Looks like a fantastic group of places you went to. Great that you didn't regret one. I can't say the same for many of the bar/pubs I've been to!

Happy belated TT!

PJ

Glad you've enjoyed your break. Blimey, I think you've visited more pubs in a fortnight than I have during my lifetime!
