Are those grave stones in the yard of a pub?
Bill Phillips: Hahaha no they are across the road. I know we Brits are odd...but not that odd grin

Life and death are close to each other.
Bill Phillips: Not a bad way to go. Have a pint, keel over and be popped across the road.

Well here is an occasional series for you, all of the pubs of Droitwich given a bit of a going-over. This one looks very agreeable, and seems to be two buildings..
Bill Phillips: I think it probably was Chris. I have no idea what it is like but an ex boyfriend of Helen's asked me for this picture so he cold get it printed snd put up in the pub. Perhaps I should go and see if they have put it up...I might get a free drink

Then you must make it your job to visit it. You should go on a pub crawl.
Bill Phillips: No. I will stick to my Tuesday night tipple with my mate Colin in the Old Cock.

Is there a good reason for that? For the first 30 years of living in my home, there was pub around 100yds away. I never went in there. It is now a Co-Op and its useful for when I have a milk crisis at home. The Rifleman's Arms looks quite agreeable form the outside.
Bill Phillips: It is on the other side of town and I drink in the Old Cock

Time to visit it properly then, Billiam. The pub ...not the graveyard.
Bill Phillips: Nah...I like The Old Cock
Time for a quick one, then, Bill.
Bill Phillips: It was a bit early in the day for me..he says with a glass gof wine by his side as he types
You could have been there in a shot.
Bill Phillips: I don't suppose I will ever go in there Martin
Handy for the graveyard....
Bill Phillips: Well why not. We once had a holiday cottage which backed onto a graveyard....it was nice and quiet
I wonder if the graveyard is a turnoff for prospective customers, Bill.
Bill Phillips: No...we are British Beverly. Nothing puts a Brit off his beer grin
Why not give it a try Bill, this is what a review says elswhere 'Comfy 'locals' pub that attracts customers of all ages. A tastefully decorated lounge bar and a fairly utilitarian public bar. Close to the railway station and opposite St Nicholas's Church. Beer garden and large function room. Noisy juke box in lounge. No food on Sundays. Beers from Marston's portfolio. An ale club on Mon eve with reduced prices.'
Bill Phillips: My local is The Old Cock where I know the Landlord and we have our Lions meetings there.

I dare you!
Bill Phillips: Hahaha Maybe sometime!
Don't suppose they get many complaints from the neighbours about noise.
Bill Phillips: hahahahahahaha

somehow the cemetery was quite unexpected
Bill Phillips: You get a nice view of the church from the pub
I have a stained glass design book of English pup signs.
Bill Phillips: That sounds interesting. Pub names are fascinating and recently some pubs that changed their names to something "trendy" have changed them back to their original name
