Anyone like to comment on Edgeley Park as a venue - I cant decide !!
On the one hand it is fantastic to get your beer and sit out in the
stand and gaze at the pitch, the Stocky landmarks and the Peninnes and
listen to the barber shop sextet !
On the other the service area is long and narrow and it's difficult to
get to the middle of the serving area so ended up drinking mostly beers
from the end of the alphabet !. Didnt get a chance to sample the food.
The beers for £1 a pint until 8pm was a nice innovation - squeezed two in !
Also as a traditional northener I was "disappointed" by the lack of any
beers on the handpumps (that I could see) giving the option of a tight
sparkler and creamy head.
Also there seemed to be more than the usual number of beers "not" on
offer - preventing last session run-out I presume.
Actually the best pint of the night was afterwards in the Olde Vic -
Moorhouses Blonde Witch (with a creamy head of course! :-)
