I can forgive a lot of things, but a sign spelling fare Fayre is a step too far. Bookers Bourbon Bar, AKA Karawara Tavern. Apparently soon to be demolished and replaced with a wine bar. Or perhaps Olde Worlde Whyne Barre. This is the establishment that asked when the American students were arriving so they could order an extra palette of fruity lexia. My short standup piece below refers to this. Fruity lexia is definitely traditional fayre.

    Was wondering what exactly Tradional Fayre might be and found this on a web site devoted to Henry VIII.

    “On average, a Tudor courtier would eat 4,500 – 5,000 calories a day, over twice today’s norm. Beef, mutton, pork, rabbit and venison were the most frequently served meats. Poultry, including pheasant, pigeon, doves, and, of course, chicken, was also plentiful. For religious reasons, fish was consumed on Wednesdays, Fridays, Sundays and during the 40 days of Lent. For feasts, the kitchens prepared elaborate marzipan confections shaped as exotic animals as well as gold-decorated dishes such as Peacock Royale.”

    WOW!! All that AND SKY channel too!

    Of course Traditional Fayre could be refering to the “bread and dung” diet of all non-courtiers in Tudor times. In Karawara I suppose that is more likely.

    If those columns greeting the punters to Bookers are any guide, I think it’s time LA did a piece on criminal misuse of limestone.


  4. Limestone should ONLY be mouldy.

    International worst (for horrible use of ‘fayre’ AND for lame website front page) at:



  6. skink says:

    what is an ‘Eatery’ ?

    is it lower than a restaurant, cafe, or bistro?

    no service, no enjoyment, just eating, possibly from a trough

    or is it some horrible Americanism for them what gets suspicious of Frenchification


  7. David Cohen says:

    of course bistro is a loanword from Russian, where it means quick.


  8. It’s like a cattery.


  9. skink says:

    …but came into use in Paris after the fall of Napoleon when the occupying Russian troops used to sit in the cafes shouting it.

    I’ll take your pedantry, Cohen, and raise you two nitpicks.

    Hopefully eateries don’t smell quite like catteries LA

    “I’ll take your pedantry, Cohen, and raise you two nitpicks.”

    Nice one skink, real nice.


  12. Rolly says:

    Anyway, you don’t get “fayre” in eateries; you can, however, usually get something to eat at fayres :D


  13. The Bedford Crackpot Fraternity says:

    At least its wasnt Lazzay Fayre!! Ho Ho Ho !!


  14. Rolly says:

    It could have been the local sheepdog show, you know; Lassie Fayre :D


  15. skink says:

    Lezzie Fayre?

    are we back to YWL’s?

    Mornington Crescent!


  16. Mango says:

    Oh no, this is too close to home. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve walked past this place – but I’ve never noticed…I must be immune to the horror of Karawara (oh the bad jokes continue!).
    And now they are charging for the return of shopping trolleys! Where will it end??

    knocked down??…..replaced with a wine bar?……WTF???..what is happening to the Boozers of this city?…….and I’ll have you know LAZY AUSSIE that fruit lexia AKA “fruity leg spreader” is a truth serum, aphrodisiac and engine cleaner all in one. I will not have the drink that all 13 of my illegitimate children were conceived with be degraded by your foul minded misconceptions that Karawarra is a location deviod of culture.

    I come form Bunbury DAMN it!!…..and this place is the PARIS of the south as far as Im concerned.
