A whopping 6 Good Beer Guide Entries in Bridgnorth, Shropshire. Nearly as many good pubs as there are blokiebloke Geocaches.
There was much deliberation about whether to do the town properly. Booking.com and Tripadvisor were consulted but alas, even with grown up kids, we still had family responsibilities limiting our ability to stop over.
We'll just tick off the one pub today and see how much we like it.
Walk database consulted for somewhere new. We've rambled upstream west, upstream east, downstream east so that left something obvious to aim at. And Country Walking Magazine provided.
We start at the Low Town Bridge, with a couple of micro caches to find.

I must have promised her a meal out in my sleep.
A grade II listed, C16th coaching house was never going to be any hardship anyway.

The Cask Marque App suggests the Stable Bar is accredited. An investigation is launched and it transpires that this is a separate concern running a long outside bar in the courtyard out the back. A long menu of cocktails shows they do Mojitos.
Bridgnorth, we will most certainly be coming back for the other 5 ticks. And a cocktail for Mrs M.
Finally, I don't often blog about individual Geocaches but there's one in the main street that shows what this game is all about. I have seen the market place many times, but I never realised that above it is the town hall. There's a cache in it, which prompted my exploration and a jokey telling off by an Octogenarian to leave his cat alone.
|Indoor Caching - Yes, it lives in that box|
