Thursday January 14th 2021 – One of the toughest bits of the pandemic for me personally – and I am, of course, aware there are much worse things going on – has been the darkness in roadside pubs and restaurants during lockdown.
Never a great pubgoer, I do like the atmosphere when you pass a busy pub at night. They always seem so warm and welcoming. And this winter that’s been largely absent.
I’m glad to note though up on Chester Road North, the Hussey Arms, although well and truly shut, has kept the lights on.
It’s like a little beacon of hope in the darkness.
