The Distance Project 31
I went to my regular pub on Monday, the Fox and Hounds in Stony Stratford. I haven’t been in this pub for over a year. It’s been closed; I think you know why.
Not sure what to expect, I turned up, ordered a pint and the barman brought it to my table, along with the card payment machine.
I didn’t have to wear a mask while drinking, but the barman and landlord both wore masks.
It’s been so long since I’ve been in the Fox that I couldn’t remember what I used to drink, but the off duty barmaid sitting at a table in one of these photos recognised me instantly, remembered what I drank (pint of Tribute) and which night I usually came in (Friday).
I was impressed.
It’s been a while since I sat and had conversations in a pub with people I don’t know; I didn’t realise how much I missed it; I had a great evening.
Friday night was, and will soon be again, live rock music night.
Before lockdown scuppered live gigs, I’d be watching a band at the Fox and Hounds nearly every Friday so I’m looking forward to the first live gig on Friday 2nd July, if all goes to plan. The band will be Remedy, and I’ll be taking photos.
It will not be the first time I’ve photographed gigs at this pub. Right back in the first weeks of the North Bucks Wanderer I published photos of live gigs, taken at the Fox and Hounds.
