Once in a while it has to be Piddle!   2 comments

A place to drink Piddle Beer Dorset

Ok I should explain. There is a river in Dorset called the River Piddle, sadly it isn’t that much of a River actually, more of a piddling little stream in most places that it dribbles its way through. From this river, so they say, whoever ‘they’ are, water is drawn for a rather fine beer. Piddle Beer which always has them rolling in the aisles, for a number of reasons tee hee.

And so it’s only logical that one of the hostelries along the occasionally meandering course of The River Piddle should be ‘The Piddle Inn,’ no sorry it’s not an instruction or indeed an invitation, it’s a Pub where they serve Piddle Beer.

If you want a bit of local history then do read on, personally I like bits of information like the following.

The river Piddle is old enough to have several names among them are Pidelen and Pydel, and as they were prone to do the rather prudish Victorians changed the spelling of the River Piddle to the River Puddle, because, and you have to titter here, ‘piddle’ is the same as the word for peeing or taking a piss and the Victorians didn’t like to pee obviously!


As you can see it is a rather pretty little river in places and definitely not a ‘puddle’ as those idiotic Victorians claimed! It may even still contain fish with only one head, instead of the sort of mutant more common in rivers from the developed, and awfully messy, world.
