It was a weekend of train trips to small market towns! Saturday was a journey into West Yorkshire to Todmorden and Sunday was another short train ride this time into Derbyshire to Glossop to visit the fabulous Globe pub.
I can't praise the Globe highly enough. It's friendly, a live music venue, has an all vegan menu, brews it's own beer and is very inexpensive. Above is my veggie steak cooked in red wine gravy with handcut chips. In fact the Globe specialises in chips - you can also get curly fries and parsnip chips too. Since my last visit which was far too long ago I was pleased to see that they've expanded to selling chocolate cake and a variety of homemade icecreams too!
Once back in Manchester we had to pop into the Thirsty Scholar for a bit of Ska Sunday as it was the last night the pub was going to be open for a while. It is situated below a railway bridge and there needs to be some major structural repairs.
We've all been gutted about this news especially since the pub is the home of Martin the Mod's (seen below on his decks) Veggie Vegan Cafe and the meeting place for Manchester Vegan Society. However, we are all delighted to find out that Mod is moving the cafe over to the Seven Oaks pub in China Town by Manchester Art Gallery and that he will move his Djing nights to the Lass O'Gowrie pub. Wishing him lots of luck with both new locations.
