It's GloucesterSHIRE, darling.

Think I've just died and gone to service station heaven. @glouc_services is amazing!

4. That time there was no crema.

5. When you can't find a seat in this glorious establishment.

6. And let's not even get started on how busy the Water Poet's beer garden gets in the summer.

7. When Sainsbury's didn't really understand the meaning of "exotic".

Sainsbury's Gloucester blazing a trail. Ladies & gents from the new world I give you the rare & exotic..... cabbage.

8. When you can't find fresh mussels for love nor money.


9. When Kingsholm sells out of seating tickets so you have to stand in the Shed.

20. When your favourite Friday farmer's market stall is all out of olive bread.
