Whats happening at the Sun???
We had to pass through Beverley yesterday and noticed the Sun Inn open so we popped in for quick refreshment and a chat with landlord.
After a discussion with the said advertisement for a pin cushion I got the feeling that folkies are no longer welcome in the sun and are referred to as "Freakies". he mentioned everyone was welcome but was not happy about session music being played in the sun ?? Although the bar music was very heavy rock it did not fit in with the pub as we know it. We decided not to push our luck and continue with the conversation , have the locals got an alternative situ for us or did we misunderstand the mohican clad gent?
