Tea @ Three: The Pit and The Pendulum?

Good afternoon Ladies and Gentlemen, and welcome, once again, to Max and Collin’s, splendidly spiffin and utterly unique parlour located in the splendidly scenic city of Lancaster, Mor Ire.  

True, perhaps, some have called it a cryptic place where carrion feast on the minds and souls of those foolish enough to enter … but we consider that such people are merely embittered that they have not yet received an invitation.

You find us, on this murky and macabre afternoon, all Punked Up With No Place To Go … or should we say ‘no place to Poe?’ …. What’s that? Oh, Max says that has a completely different connotation and should be uttered Nevermore

Well, whatever the case we are still celebrating Poevember here in the parlour and consequently we are just about to kick our tentacles up on the table with a steaming cup of Coconut rush yerba mate from ujjay boutique (Yes we know it has Assam in it but we’re feeling extremely daring and adventurous this afternoon) and peruse the society papers to find somewhere gloriously gothic to spend the weekend…

Ah, now here is a blast from the past! If you are anywhere near the midlands (and even if you are not) and have a penchant for Poe then you absolutely MUST visit this little pocket of perfection…

The pit And The Pendulum Public House is every Gothic fiction fan’s dream come true with gothic furniture and decor throughout, gruesome gargoyles, live music and even secret passage ways and hidden doors!

Or, looking ahead intot he distant future that is February, Witby is going to have its very own Steampunk Weekend!

  1. Alas, I am on a different continent as I would love to go to both the Pit and the Pendulum Public House, as well as the Steampunk Weekend. I’ll just have to read some Poe with a cup of tea instead. Happy Poevember to you!

      Happy Poevember to you too dear Lady! Alas what a shame, the Pit is a fabulous haunt, still perhaps next week Max and Collin should cast their social net a little wider and try to catch something further afield – feel free to let me know if you have any events or venues that could do with a feature 🙂
