Edible Reindeer? What next?!..

Enjoyed a lovely seasonal biscuit from Bakehouse at 124. An edible reindeer. Get your teeth stuck into one!

Merry Christmas to one and all in Tonbridge and beyond...

See if you can spot TBlog during BBC This Week's TWelfie sequence. If you don't know it this is the Andrew Neil hosted late night political show which I'm a regular viewer of. Don't blink or you'll miss me!

If the link to the video doesn't work then don't blame me. What do you think I am an IT technician or something! Anyway have a great Christmas everyone. I promise way more posts (and pictures) in the New Year...

More from T Blog....

Okay, quite a bit going on in Tonbridge at the moment. You can read all about the opening of the new M&S Food Hall on the front page of the Courier today. Really! Is that really front page news? It's only the same as Lidl but in expensive looking packaging you know! Then there's the new pubs about to open: Mojo's is being rebadged as a tapas bar apparently, Fuggles will open sometime in 2017, I'm told that this will be once Mr. Bonner has sold all his furniture from the existing shop! Meanwhile The Gatehouse has pipped them both to the post by opening up well in time for Christmas as a craft beer pub. Well, sort of anyway. In truth it's more like a rebranded Slug and Lettuce, complete with sports screen, fruit machines etc. with craft beer knobs on. They obviously ran out of money when it came to the signage outside the pub as it's faded and shabby looking after only a couple of weeks! I haven't been in there yet preferring to occasionally frequent Ye Olde Chequers Inn for my post work pint. I'm afraid that the new owners, despite their best efforts I'm sure, don't appear to have lifted the place all that much. The d├ęcor is still pretty drab inside, you still get stared at by the regulars propping up the bar as you walk in and there's still no food, except if you count the very tasty kettle crisps. Cheese n onion being my personal fave. Thankfully though the Tribute Ale is every bit as well kept and beautiful.
My new years resolution will be to blog at least once a week btw. So we'll see how that goes along with the street photos to be taken on my new camera....
