Crowning Glory

I have spent a terrific afternoon in the company of old friends from Harrow. We met at Belfast's celebrated Crown Bar in Great Victoria Street, a property of the National Trust, though splendidly run by Nicholson's Pubs.

I had a few Tanquerays; the others supped pear cider.

For lunch, John and self enjoyed a fine plate of cod and chips with mushy peas and tartare sauce.

My pudding was apple crumble with custard.

Everything was very good indeed, as was the service. We were fortunate enough to have a snug to ourselves.

We stayed at the bar until ten past three, when the others had a train to catch.

THE BEER GARDEN at the rear of the National Grand Café, High Street, Belfast, is almost ready. It will be accessible from Skipper Street.
