For exactly the same reasons as the beer of the month for March 2015 (my dad passed away), the pub of the month is an emotional choice, because beer and trips to the pub were one of the furthest things from my mind.
March also saw a happy event, Mrs MOFAD’s 40th birthday, which involved a meal out with friends – family and friends were the key to March. After a lovely meal at the Thai Grand, we popped next door to The Swan in the Rushes, a long time MOFAD favourite which appears on the MOFAD map for a quiet pint and some quiet contemplation.
This pint just happened to be the possibly aptly named Salvation, by the recently opened Charnwood Brewery (our new local brewery). A nice, hoppy golden ale, and just the thing to raise a quiet toast to my departed Dad.
A proper review of the Swan will follow later in the year, because we will definitely be back.
