Now that is quirky!

I posted this one on another thread but it's relevant to this thread too. Its a pub/club in Bangkok near the Imperial Queens Park hotel where the flight crew stay.

I gather from the male members of the crew that the occasional game of "ping pong" is played within it's walls!!  


Good idea for a thread Fastnet and a good start with the examples

If i could workout how to upload my pics i would have a few in here.

You need all the text in the highlighted box (right click select all) Right Click Copy and to make sure you have chacked BBcode then just paste the text into the chosen thread .... Choose the right size though 800xXXX or 1024 being the preferred size for images to the board.


Great photo. of the tiled pub and it will not need painting anytime soon. However, I noticed vegetation by the front door?

The barn and outhouses also in Manchester.

The Lass 'O' Gowrie, Manchester -

I called in yesterday after a meeting in Manchester - fancied a few refreshments before catching the train up the road from Oxford Road Station.

The name has a Scottish origin -

"Legend has it that the original landlord of the pub was not an Irishman, but a proud, homesick Scotsman who named the pub in honour of his favourite poem - 'the Lass O'Gowrie' written by the celebrated Scottish poet Lady Carolina Nairne."

It has a fantastic tiled exterior. Although there were at least ten hand pumps only three were in action - the 'house special' Betty's Best (although the pump displays a picture of Violet Carson a.k.a. Ena Sharples for some reason!) is recommended. The toilets are definitely 'period'   !

Three fine photo's of pubs even the one from bog country.

Pub in Cong from the film The Quiet Man..
