Easton Cowboys and Cowgirls


I'm sitting in The Plough in Easton, Bristol, a pub that was my local for many years, many years ago. By some chance I am again living in the house I left 12 years back.  The Plough might be the only pub in the country with a banner over the bar - REFUGEES WELCOME - , and it's busy this evening, mainly with people watching football. The Easton Cowboys and Cowgirls bought the place around the time I moved away, when the previous owners retired to the West Indies, having kept a wonderful open house for ages.   They ran 'club' lock-in s and asked a £1 donation to Cancer Research,, in return for which you might hear a DJ - Derek perhaps - or play pool till dawn. Or just chill. 

The Easton Cowboys and Cowgirls are a sports and social club with a wonderful ethos, check them out and drop in The Plough when you're in town.
