FROM MARK WRIGHT:
Further race trip details are as follows (click on pub names to find out more):
Fantastic pub in a quiet village just 4 miles from Ripon. There is a babbling brook running through the village and by the front of the pub and there are small groups of ducks dipping in and out of the water and lounging about on the grassy verges. Inside the olde worlde pub there are low ceilings and real ale on draft. Landlady by the name of Nicki will see to it that the Rugby match New Zealand v France will be on the TV for those that want to watch (9.30am kick off). The comforting smell of bacon sizzling and toast lightly browning will waft in from the kitchen as we make our choice for the first drink of the day. Wooden tables shaded by umbrellas sit outside. Practically no vehicles to disturb the quietness.
Cosy country pub with surprisingly ample and enclosed patio area to the rear. Black sheep ale and guest beers. Landlady Louise will be toiling over the preparation of our 3 course menu whilst we make our way down the country lanes in our luxury coach. The sun will be setting as we regale in the tales of how different it might have been had horse number two not fallen over in the first.( good effort on the flat)
The weather has been ordered – not too warm, 18 degrees, and no rain.
