The Countryman isn't located particularly close to where I live, or even where I frequent, being in a village several miles away, but it is worth the journey (especially when busy on Wednesday lunchtimes when they serve fish dishes at discounts). I usually have the rump or sirloin steak with trimmings and a couple of glasses of wine, and it is absolutely superb. The atmosphere is more akin to a quality restaurant than a pub, and while the staff are perhaps more efficient than friendly, the atmosphere they have cultivated is very peaceful whilst being comfortable, lively and enjoyable, and I happily pay the £20 the above affords me.
Got to agree with others that Grimsby is now one of THE places to go out My fave night is Thursday - down at Chicago Rock. Only a quid to get in then all drinks AND what's on the Thursday menu is all a quid - all night. They've got a good DJ, none of this jungle crap - but he is a bit banana's. They also have a photographer, who puts your picture on the big screen as well. See if you can guess which I am - http://ChicagoRock.Luvs.It is the website where they put the photo's taken on Thursdays. 'Lizzie'
Well it isnt often you hear people talking about grimsby never mind actually knowing it even exists,im from grimsby and ive lived here for about 10 years now so ive seen it really busy and seen it through its slump, and I can guarentee every body and anybody a good night out if your 18 and over youll have a scream.... cleethorpes has got to be the best night out for miles I would even say its better than skegness.....you got all the trendy pubs and you got the quiet ones but wether your 18 or 80 you are made to feel welcome in every single pub, if you want a night club there is 2 for the younger ones the Pier and Flares (Flares is a 70's special, pub and club combined)which has the bar staff dancing on the bar and tables with specialist dancers who know all the moves to car wash and saturday night fever but to name a few and if no-ones dancing they grab you and dance with you on the floor so to save embarrasment you dance anyway.....the Pier is just a night club with plenty of people and plenty of music then for the older people 25+ you have Park Lane which is a little smaller but just as good (the one I go to )the beer is average prices as are most in a night club and the music ranges from 70's to the latest dance music from Meatloaf to Gladys Knight you name it they got it.....I would recommend cleethorpes to any one who asks if you get the chance to go I would deffinetly say your a fool not to.
Grimsby is quite a small town in North East Lincolnshire.The Grimsby night-life is quite a good night out. Weekends are the busiest as in most towns and cities. The pubs are very close to each other so you can stroll out of one into the next. There are a lot of the well known branded pubs such as Edwards, TP Woods and Wetherspoons as well as some not so well known like Lloyds and Swigs. The pubs in Grimsby cater for all ages, there are pubs for the 40 somethings who just want a quiet drink and pubs for the 18 and upwards who are on the pull and want to have a laugh and dance. The downside of Grimsby is that there isn't a very good choice of nightclubs, but if that is what you want, you can hop onto a bus or taxi and go to Cleethorpes which is about 10 minutes away. Overall Grimsby is a good night out and they do lovely fish and chips.
Grimsby is a small town on the end of the M180. It used to be a really big fishing port and where there are sailers there are pubs. These days things are different now, but there are still many places to visit for that relaxing drink, if that is what you are after. There are plenty of pubs to drink at in Grimsby and they all cater for different people. In the town centre there are the 'trendy' pubs, like, Edwards, T.P Woods, with wooden floor, cool music and bottled beers. Plus they are building a new development of pubs and wine bars, next to the shopping centre. That is where Chicargo Rock Cafe is, all my friends go a lot and say it is really good, a bit for everyone, from the young to the older client, I had my leaving do from work there when I went on maternity leave, food lovely, atmosphere good, but the way we were treated terrible. I booked a table for 25 people all having a meal, (bill very expensive) and as soon as we were finished we were kicked off the table, fair enough if others needed it but it was cleared away and not used, bearing in mind I was 8 months pregnant and there was another pregnant lady with us and no where to sit. It says on the menu that tables booked before 9 aren't for the whole night. But the music was good, it ranges from the 50s to the 80s. There is the more traditional pubs that you go to just to have a pint and relax or even watch the football. On the edge of Grimsby there are the family pubs, that have childrens facilities, like The Haven or the Jug and Bottle, they are fantastic places for the family. They offer family entertainment and food in with it. Then in Cleethorpes, there are the 'fun' pubs. Cleethorpes is a coastal town and has many tourists in the summer and they offer everything you need. Brought your family along, there is the Wellow Hotel or The Trawlerman, quiet drink there is Mitchells or fancy a bop with a drink and there is the Baton Rouge and The Dolphine and a new pub called Flairs that has a 70's theme. Each pub has something depending on what you are looking for, to suit your needs. Plus if you are hungry after there are plenty of take aways from pizza to fish and chips, kebabs to indians.
