Jolie maison qui a l'air d'être ancienne.
Picturit: This is a very old pub, Martine. We did not go inside though.
Astrid.
What a lovely shot! Isn't Flemish Dutch?
Picturit: Thank you, Elizabeth. We had a great walk around the city with Lisl as our guide. This link explains about the Flemish part. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flemish

Bunting makes it better... smile
Picturit: Indeed, Ray, you are right. It looked so cozy in the street as well.

More English cannot be, Ginnie would say, including the bunting in the colours of the Union Jack! I love this merry old England - and your Astrid- sign!
Picturit: Thank you, Philine, yes this is the real deal and we so love the pubs and the good food that they have.

I wonder how this pub got such an unusual name Astrid?

The man is texting his wife to say he's working late..
Picturit: Maybe because there is "Flemish Weaver Guild" closeby and they wanted "a place of their own"?.
After we visited the church and cemetery, the man was gone.... maybe his wife picked him up "from work"...
Astrid.
I'll never forget this, Astrid, and how Lisl told us about the weavers who escaped to here from Belgium during a time of persecution. I wish we had taken the time to pop in for a cider! smile
Picturit: This was such a beautiful town and church and cemetery. Too bad indeed, I saw pictures on the internet how a wonderful inside this pub has.

It looks very welcoming. I am pleased to see the street decorated in honour of our guests from Dutchtland smile
Picturit: It sure looks inviting and too bad we did not take the invitation... Indeed I love the bunting, looks very festive.
Astrid.
Très belle architecture !
J'aime ces pierres apparentes !
Bonne journée
Picturit: Claudine, we love places like this and most pubs look so wonderful inside too. Too bad we did not have time to have a look inside this one. But I sure love the outside. Have a wonderful day.
Astrid.
Kijk.....zo stel ik mij Engeland voor ;-0
Picturit: Dit is echt Engels, Marjolein. Er gaat niets boven eten in een pub met een goede pot cider (er zijn vaak locale brouwers met een uitstekende cider) het eten is voortreffelijk en voor een goede prijs. En gewoon gezellig!!! Soms lijkt het wel of de tijd stilgestaan heeft. Het is zo anders, maar dat zeggen zij van ons ook.

A fine looking pub Lady P. They even reserved a parking space for you
Picturit: Thank you, Bill. Yes indeed they knew we were coming wink.

Aha, that is close to the Dutch sounding street name I posted some time back Astrid. I wonder what the connection could be. We once lived in Corsham when I worked on Sonar for the MOD in a disused underground quarry near here. I have fond memories of my time in Corsham.
Picturit: Yes indeed we saw the Dutch name too... the Flemish language is close to Dutch and considered "pure Dutch" they almost have a Dutch word for every English word we Dutch like to put in.... And Flemish Weavers came into this town, this is what Philine found on the internet: " Flemish weavers, already discontented with conditions in Flanders, were encouraged to bring their skills to England. Inevitably such competition was resented by English weavers. The Weavers were prevented by the King from forcing the foreign workers to join their Guild and pay dues. Instead Flemish workers were allowed to set up their own Guild and measures were introduced to protect them. Disputes continued for over a hundred years during which time many attempts were made to reach agreement. Eventually in 1497 a pact was made protecting the interests of both sides and absorbing the “aliens” into the Weavers’ Guild." (WIKI history)
I can imagine that you like Corsham.

Looks like a proper pub, Astrid.
Picturit: Indeed so, Frank. Too bad that we did not go in for a good cider....
Astrid.
Not a part of our country I know at all, but no mistaking it's England with a fine looking pub like that.
Picturit: This is in our eyes so English and we love it, Brian. It is a very nice town too.
Astrid.
An interesting name for a pub, with quite a bit of history behind it.
Picturit: Indeed Tom, this town has a very rich history.

Great corner on the right for a pub lunch and a beer.
Picturit: These places are the best, Louis. The food is outstanding and also the cider is mostly local and so good wink.

the red white blue flags could be in the Netherlands too, Astrid.
Picturit: Yes indeed, Ayush, however this pub is so English and we regret that we did not have a peek inside..

" the flemisch weaver" dan nog...

had ik daar wel niet verwacht Astrid..

greetings
Picturit: Al in 1450 waren er wevers uit Vlaanderen en die kregen zeker een eigen Gilde. Er is zelfs een hele straat waar ze woonden.
Nog een fijne dag.
Astrid.
Maybe if a mealtime is near or just a coffee, this place looks inviting.
Picturit: It sure looks inviting, Mary and most of the time the food is outstanding as for the local cider wink..

Now that is certainly an inviting place! Love the name placement!!
Picturit: Those English pubs looks very inviting, they often have those wonderful signs hanging outside. And the food is outstanding as the cider wink
