The Great Western
Station Road, Didcot, Oxfordshire OX11 7NN. Tel Abingdon (01235) 511091.

It's down in the Electronic Yellow Pages as the Great Western Bar and 
Grill, but this has been downplayed recently. The notice outside only says 
The Great Western. Relatively plush place that was thrown up with the 
railway. Brass, patterned carpet, so on. The main things that stick in my 
mind are the Morland Original on offer, and the throng of football 
supporters round the bar and their incoherent football chants. This was 
immediately before chucking out time (and the last train), which might 
have had something to do with it, though. (13.i.2000)
