Reminiscing
« on: February 22, 2020, 07:37:15 PM »
I was in Bristol for lunch today and headed back to get a train in the howling wind and stopped at The Knights Templar pub for light refreshment on route. It's a weatherspoons plastic barn, and normally I would have just past it by except this unremarkable pub has a fond memory for me and hopefully a couple of others still on here.

The last time is was there was early March 2015 after the Grim Gathering event we had a super chilled out breakfast here and socialised after the event. At Marcs instigation Waterstones hosted Joe Abercrombie, Mark Lawrence, Peter Brett and Peter Newman (who was new and shiny and had a table full of pre-release books) for a Q&A and signing and beers afterward. A great event and introduction to many on the forum at the time.

Oh my gawd, was that the breakfast place? It was when I first met you, since I'd been too busy and star-struck the evening before ;D
