Where I live....

In a little town called Winton. It has five pubs, two of which are rough as fuck and you wouldn't send your worst enemy in there for a piss. So of course I have been in both of them.

It has more charity clothes shops than actually clothes shops, not that you would buy clothes from any of these stores. It used to have a Woolworths until they went tits up. There seems to be an endless amount of little cafe's that can only actually hold about 8 people and you can never get a table.

Of course Winton has its own Aldi, haven't set foot in it yet. Apparently its cheap for fruit and veg. We also have a pizza hut but its take away only, we don't have a restaurant. We have a shitty Italian restaurant that I went to nearly a year ago and it was fucking revolting. A Dominoes and some other Pizza joint, a shitty chipper and about twenty chicken balls and curry sauce joints.

Winton also has its very own Bingo Hall and youth club. Go to the bingo hall to grab a granny and go to the youth club to get mugged by some 12 year old Reggie Kray.

Wintons proudest moment of late was the opening of a Weatherspoons on the main street, local chavs estimate its saving them £200 a year on their beer for benefits scheme.

All in all, a wonderful place.

Aldi? Weatherspoons? Caf├ęs? But it's a bustling metropolis! We've got a combined pub/undertaker, several hundred sheep and a shop that sells fags and out-of-date mars bars.

@Toners- I do, but Winton is my village I suppose you would call it

Dominos in Winton rocks!! Always on time, HOT and exactly what I ordered (unlike the crap I had to put up with where I used to live).

I live 10/15 minutes from Winton.... The pubs sound delightful, I have a longing desire to want to check them out!! Kind of reminds me of the old days and the "Happy Landing" in Stanwell, Middlesex. That place brings a whole new meaning to the expression "rough as fuck". The sort of pub that you are likely to be knifed within 30 seconds of walking through the door unless you can prove you live less than 100 yards from said classy drinking establishment!!...
