Eagle and the Child

Oxford today. Went to the Eagle and the Child for a pint, which Tolkien and C.S. Lewis used to refer to as the bird and the baby when they’d read drafts aloud to one another.
Brian also bought a french edition of The Hobbit for me so if you know me, you know how pleased I am (travel, Tolkien, Lewis, beer, French, Brian).
