    Strolling down to first tow at Craigieburn. Weather cleared over night to reveal a bluebird day with untracked fresh up top.

    On our recent Clubby road trip, my wife and I also went to the Sheffield pub (first time in there). We sit down and the barmaid calls out to ask if we want a bar menu. Instead of grabbing them from just behind her she tells us that we need to walk around into the public bar to get them from the wall. When we come back, there is a "reserved" sign on our table that we are 90% sure wasn't there from 15 seconds ago. We are told it is reserved for the staff. We left, drove another 10 minutes to Darfield to eat.

    We also heard about Springfield Pub being a bit strange and were not overly impressed on one visit.

    At Darfield Pub we had a nice meal.
