Last night Mr. Watkins and I went to The Globe pub for dinner, that same place we went last week. I didn’t go for the chicken pie this time, instead I ordered what The Globe does best, Hunters Chicken.

For those out there who have not had the privilege of tasting this dish, you are missing out. Hunters Chicken is a succulent chicken breast wrapped in bacon and served in a bowl of rich & creamy barbecue cheese. This is accompanied by smooth, cheesy mashed potato and vegetables.

The last time I tried Hunters Chicken was last year. It was disappointing. The bacon and chicken were both overcooked and the sauce way below standard. I am pleased to say that last nights offering was far superior and back to its original and delicious standard. The chef from last year had obviously been sacked for devastating a previously superb delicacy.

After dinner it was back to my flat for a brief stint of 2 player GoldenEye before driving into Bristol to watch a film at The Showcase. This week I chose the film. We decided to watch Jack Black’s new movie, Nacho Libre.

The film did not disappoint. It was one of the funniest movies I have seen in a long, long time. The whole plot, scenes and acting were stupid, but stupid in a good way.

Like The South Park or Austin Powers movies, Nacho Libre knew it was daft and that the storyline could have been written by a dyslexic 10 year old, but it was produced in such a way that the bizarre scenes worked to its advantage.

Another great thing about last nights visit to the cinema was the Ice Blasts. Normally a hefty £2.70 each, there is a promotion being run at The Showcase where if you buy one large Ice Blast, you get another for £1. As Watkins and I ALWAYS have Ice Blasts, this means buying two. The reduced costs of the frosty treats meant that we could have another at the films half way period. Mmmm… they taste so good, just don’t think about what all those E numbers and colourings are doing to my insides.

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
