There are 7 of us confirmed now and the more the merrier so do feel free to join up.
Leaving Waterloo on the 09.30 Portsmouth Harbour train, Iíll be boarding at Clapham Junction 09.39, aim to meet up in the front coach, more chance of seats together I imagine. That said I donít think it should be too busy that time on a Sunday am.
On arrival we will hit the Spoons by the station for a quick 15 minute refresher
Then weíll take the train at 12.55 to Shanklin at the far end of the railway line, just a 20 minute run.
15 minute walkf then lunch in the Waterfront Inn, circa 13.30-14.30/15.00
GBG pub not on RB. Theres another GBG pub a few minutes walk away that we may have time to pop to.
Back on the 15.18 train to Sandown where weíll take on another GBG offering, The Castle Inn. Itís 0.35 miles from the station, GBG says it does local beers. Weíll hit the train an hour after we arrived so back into Ryde by 16.40.
This gives us 35 minutes until our return crossing at 17.15.
A bottle shop may yield more IOW ticks ... and the fabled garlic beer???
