The Beckwood, Scunthorpe
I’ve never had a ‘local’ pub other than The Beckwood (apart from a B&B in Telford, but that’s another story)! However, OMG I don’t change my boxer shorts as frequently as the brewery change their manager’s!
To be honest, it’s not up to much, but it’s our ‘local’ and therefore it’s our Friday night, end of the work week, haven. Well, haven may be a little over the top, but I hope you get my gist. I’ve lived in Scunny (Scunthorpe for the uninitiated) for 7 and a bit years, but for every one of those 93 months The Beckwood is our second home. It’s less than a mile from where we live and it’s where the extended family congregate on a Friday as a minimum.
It is a basic pub to say the least and in dire need of refurbishment. The lounge is not so bad, but the bar is rough… Not in an aggressive way, just in terms of the decor, the furniture and the general feel of the place… But it’s ours!
Tonight is a prime example, we came out for two pints to be sociable with Amanda’s brothers, but we are still here 5 hours later! Don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining, it’s just how we role on a typical Friday in Scunny lol.
