Did you know our National Anthem takes its tune from an old drinking song? You would if you were hanging out at Merlin’s Rest one recent night, as a packed house passed out lyric sheets and tried their merry best on pub standards of yore. (Note: Not all tunes are suitable for kids. In fact, all the best ones aren’t.) Gather strength from a menu filled with flaky meat pies and pasties, Stilton cheese, and gravy, plus... several other kinds of cheeses and gravies. You shush your mouth about counting calories. This next song’s about to start.
