It's generally acknowledged that the Master of Suspense disliked costume dramas and Jamaica Inn--a rip-roaring melodrama drawn from a Daphne du Maurier pot-boiler, set in 1820s Cornwall--is about as costumed as they come. So what was he doing directing it? Killing time, essentially. In 1939 Hitchcock was due to leave Britain for Hollywood, but delays Stateside left him with time on his hands. Never one to sit idle, he agreed to make one picture for Mayflower Productions, a new outfit formed by actor Charles Laughton and émigré German producer Erich Pommer. An innocent young orphan (the 19-year-old Maureen O'Hara in her first starring role) arrives at her uncle's remote Cornish inn to find it a den of reprobates given to smuggling, wrecking and gross overacting. They're all out-hammed, though, by Laughton at his most corseted and outrageously self-indulgent as the local squire to whom Maureen runs for help. Since his star was also the co-producer, Hitch couldn't do much with the temperamental actor. He contented himself with adding a few characteristic touches--including a spot of bondage (always a Hitchcock favourite), and the chief villain's final spectacular plunge from a high place--and slyly sending up the melodramatic absurdities of the plot. Jamaica Inn hardly stands high in the Master's canon, but it trundles along divertingly enough. Hitchcock fanatics will have fun comparing it with his two subsequent--and far more accomplished--Du Maurier adaptations, Rebecca and The Birds. --Philip Kemp

...About a year ago we were invited to a wedding in Aberdeen. Because it was such a long drive there we broke our journey up into a couple of night stays in various Premier Inns along the way and so that meant we had spent quite a bit of money and couldn't afford to stay in the hotel where the wedding was held so opted for yet another Premier Inn... it did turn into a bit of a tour of the Premier...
Advantages: Close to where I live, sizzling pub, tasty mixed grills Disadvantages: rowdy pub, last resort
The jubilee Inn is Grimsby's second sizzling pub restaurant. Which is central to Great coates, laceby and scartho. With this being so close to these areas it means that it is competing with the other sizzling pub "bradley Inn" I live in Laceby and to me the bradley is closer but more busy so if it looks too full there we will go to the Jubilee Inn. This is a large building...

...The Bushmills Inn
We were on our way to our holiday cottage close to Giants Causeway and being extremely hungry, when we passed through Bushmills and saw this inn, we decided we needed to stop for food and drink.
The original coach house and stables are thought to date back to 1608, the same year that the Bushmills distillery was granted the first licence to distil whiskey...
