It is sad state of affairs that supermarket shoppers are palmed off with immature bottom rung Bordeaux red wines that do little to seduce the wine drinker away from the easy drinking, fruit-driven Cabernet, Merlot & Malbec wines from the New World. Surely this is the wrong way to introduce the drinker to the delights of Bordeaux.

The amount sugar is not on the label of Children’s Vitamins & Food Supplements.

Where is it? 15 Spittal Street, Marlow, Bucks
What is it? A traditional Butcher’s Shop that is also a sports’ pub, serving local beer & bar snacks.
What is it like? There is no getting away from that this is a real Butcher’s! Large meat counter by day, and somewhere to put your pint by night, Damien Hirst-like cuts of meat encased in glass units around the pub, even the toilet roll holder has a butcher’s twist. Check them out! There are Tellies showing world sport, but they are not intrusive, and they are a harmonious addition to the pub’s banter.
I’ve tasted Mamba Energy.
Want a pick-me-up drink? Then like most drinkers, you’ll grab can or two of Red Bull. You may not like the taste, but it hits the spot for going that extra mile, especially, if you’re partying or driving! And if you want it turbo charged, add shot or two of vodka. Sorted!

They may have an equal somewhere in the world – but you won’t find better in a UK supermarket. Check them out! Read more
