Knight out at the Meadery





In a world of fast-food outlets and expensive restaurants it took some time (well, up until now actually) to realise that the chain of 'Meaderies' in my part of world are a little unusual.


They are no-frills eateries, mostly set in old church buildings, with a basic menu of chicken-in-the-rough plonked on a wooden platter and brought to your long wooden table by wenches. The menu does stretch a little further to fish and a standard veg platter but a night at a meadery is not really about the food!




A Meadery = mead, and most local people will give you a hundred stories (none of them clean) after drinking the local honey based brew. It comes in different flavours, blackberry (me fav), elderberry, strawberry and original, err, mead.




Half a flagon (a half litre) will cost you your legs and after that it is advisable not to expect to be coherent, or manage to reach your bed without the help of a close friend.
So if you are down in Cornwall with a bunch of friends, a bus and a teetotal driver, please give me a shout as by next month I may just have got over last weekend!!

This almost makes me wish I was still drinking ;-)

There are plenty of non-alcoholic beverages, Mac, or did you mean you have given up drinking anything and only take water by intravenous drip?

Do you have MtDew on that side of the pond?

I still don't drink water. It's too, flavorless.

The Meadery in Newlyn really is one of my favourite places to eat (and drink). Everything is great there, we always venture in when staying at my cottage in Mousehole.
