Hi All,



From a detailed analysis of this forum, there is a dire need for a Black Country Pub at Esentepe



What is meant by a black country pub? Good beer, fair prices, good crack, no cracked glasses bon homie, no backbiting, barmaids that are well blessed, and will speak to you when you have had one too many, wives allowed but only by prior appointment, sawdust on the floor to keep it hygenic,..... good food.....scratchings....black pudding...hot pork sarnies...pork pies.....Generally in accordance with EU regulations.



Now then I for one are prepared to put my hand in my pocket (shallow pocket, small hands)

I dont want to run it (too much like hard work) just be greeted like royalty every time I call.

I am prepared to invest (do they take sovreigns). Parking for the horse and trap.



NOW THEN ALL YOU BLACK COUNTRY MEN.....YOUR COUNTRY NEEDS YOU...........

REGISTER HERE NOW. WE HAVE TO MOVE THIS COUNTRY FORWARD.



Applications in a sealed brown envelope.



John (Muktar in waiting) Esentepe North Cyprus.



The locals are complaining that the area is short of infrastructure LETS SOCK IT TO THEM!

Hi wackyjim and ukturk,



I am not proposing a Black Country pub on every street corner!



Given that Britains favourite meal is supposed to be Chicken Korma, I find your responses somewhat heavy handed. The Black Country in the UK houses a wide variety of ethnic diversity in its restaurants, especially Chinese,Indian and almost every nationality in the world.



What are you guys proposing for the infrastructure of Esentepe ONLY CYPRIOT FOOD. Given that the Esentepe Villa Hotel is renouned for its English breakfast, and the last time I had Fish and Chips was at The Cod Baba, I think you should reconsider your postings.



Perhaps if you indicated how the infrastructure of Esentepe should develop we could all enjoy a rational discussion. No Chinese or Indian?



When staying at The Ship , when we chose to eat out (which wasnt very often) we tried L'ambience and La Figaro and found the diversity an absolute joy.



I would hope Esentepe would develop along similar lines, but allowing a little diversity,

and the opportunity for all of The Black Country investors, in the area a place to eat and drink and meet up and enjoy each others company, and the locals of course.



It might also help if you understood something of their humour!

Sorry wynyardman, I agree with wackyjim & ukturk, Ive invested in TRNC to get away from the over commercialised Spanish type holiday. I want to sample local cultures, learn and understand more about the country, not turn it into the "fox and hound"



Lets vote to leave this stuff in the UK and enjoy TRNC for what it is, a fantastic place to visit, with excellent local hospitality....



I'm sure there is room to bring investment in to the country and a sample of UK living to boot but lets appreciate it as it is and not spoil it. The last thing I want to see is a Karaoke type bar full of lager louts.....

Eh..up lad. I'm thinking your takin this to serious.



Your pub sounds just fine but what about having a casino and a couple of " night clubs" so we all have somewhere to go once you ring the last orders bell .



Joking apart facilities such as pubs are bit thin on the ground in Esentepe therefore maybe there is room for something along your lines as long as it s not the forerunner of more sinister touristic development



Anyway good luck on your plans



Jim.

Sorry Wynyardman but I tend to agree with the others. It may be a case of "not in my back yard" but I certainly don't want an "english" pub in Esentepe. I'll stick to drinking with the locals. To be honest and purely through personal choice I would never enter any establishment that looked remotely like an English pub in Cyprus. Restaurants are a different matter. Trouble is with English pubs they tend to have a cult following (I'm probably going to regret saying this) English Pub = drunken lager louts. Open a bar by all means but don't call it something that resembles an English name.

Next it'll be sticks of rock and kiss me quick hats

hi john

firstly maybe you should understand about other peoples humour other than black country humour!!!!

i was only joking around with you obvisouly you cant take a joke, but since you got all serious i really dont care what you guys do and i did not say not to have one did i? but too many expats try and recreate what they left behind in the u.k to where they have emigratted to france,spain,portugal,turkey,cyprus etc etc and theres me thinking the reason why brits leave blighty is to get away from everything that is british otherwise whats the point of leaving in the first place



your comments about infrastructure about essentepe to serve only cypriot food well you are living in cyprus my friend and you are right about there are loads of resturants catering for brits which is probabley going to get out of hand got the same problem in turkey there are irish pubs, southern pubs, northern pubs resturants that only serve english breakfasts and english dinners im all for diversty but the problem that happens is that some of the expats segregate themselves away from the locals and trust me this has a adverse effect and this is coming from a local

you mentioned about resturants like the ship, L ambience, esentepe villa hotel la figaro i agree they all serve nice food but have you actually gone and eaten at typical turkish cypriot lokanta or ocackbaşi that serve only turkish food because the above mentioned resturants dont exactly strike me as typical turkish cypriot resturants

and my last thoughts on this mate is do as what the romans do!!!!

and please lighten up!!!!!

regards

I could not agree more with what you say regarding the colonisation habits we Brits have when we move to another country. I have been to the Irish bar ( can't remember its name) in Girne and yes its very busy but it has a Bouncer outside and that is something I did not expect to see here and to be honest although the banter inside was quite good I have never been back. When its open I prefer going to the Cyprian further along the road which is very very basic but much more what I am looking for.



I also agree that the Costa English all day breakfast culture is rapidly growing in NC and unfortunately for locals to earn a living even some of the more traditional TC restaruants now appear to be offering this delicacy. I suppose one could argue that without the Brits NC would struggle to survive as an economy and therefore it should pander to the wants and needs of people prepared to spend money within that enviroment but that sorely misses the point.



In defence of John he is a Black Country boy through and through and is very rightly proud of that fact in the same way that I'm a proud Jock but its amazing how this pride in your roots increases the further you are from it and you defend it to the last. Once you go back to it you don't give a damn!!! Strange



Personally I bought in NC to get away from all that but do admit that I intend getting myself a HUGE 4 meter satellite dish just to keep in touch with the football.

How sad is that!!!!!!!!!!!

hi jim

you are right mate about your comments proudness of your roots, once a person leaves their place of birth or living their pride increases and people from the same area tend to stick together just for the plain fact they share something in common where they came from but what bewilders me is that if you saw that same person back where you come from you would not even give them the time of day now thats starnge!!!! and just because you are from the same area does not mean you should all stick together integration is the key!!!!

you are not sad mate by trying to keep in touch with the football on a saturday no work gets done in the office cos i have got my eyes glued to the t.v, you also you dont need to have a giant flying saucer in your back garden to get the football if you are talking about sky then all you need is min a 1.8mt dish to get sky sports but that another discussion

warm regards to all and my black country friends i actually like the midlands i have family who live in solihull they call themselves silhillians not sure what that means thou and why!!!! lol

Hi up wynyardman



It looks as though we have touched a nerve with our banter, but then for others to understand our type of humour is probably asking to much.

Putting the record straight.



Hi All,



Wow! Whats going on here? What started out as some light banter between ex Black Country lads, who had identified themselves, then turned to Esentepe having no infrastructure, then turned into a "tongue in cheek" remark, that we could have a whip round, and buy ourselves a place where we could all meet up, and have a natter about old times.



We chose to buy in Esentepe because of its wild beauty, and the promise of a strictly controlled infrastructure.



I do not like Aiya Napa type developments, lager louts, kiss me quick hats or over commercialisation of any type. Benidorm is certainly not my scene!



I enjoy local coulture , and wherever possible support local enterprises.I adore the wild beauty of the TRNC, hence our investment here. As for lightening up, if I was any more relaxed, I wouldnt wake up in the morning.



No I am unconcerned about any misunderstanding, just happy to make my posiition crystal

clear (just like the sea off Esentepe.)

hi gerry

welcome to the forum aswell, you have made a good choice in joining this forum all the people are very helpfull and friendly and even when we dont agree with each other we all normally kiss and make up and move on!!!!! LOL



also hi to araba like what john said the ship, L ambience, esentepe villa hotel la figaro are all nice resturants but if you want specialist turkish resturants the best for me is located in upper girne its name is ezic they have not so long ago moved to this new location the place is massive and the food is second to none every single kind of kebab and meze can be found their, another top class resturant is efendi which is located in girne centre also mangal close to the big fountain roundabout, and niazi which probabley one of the oldest resturants in the whole of north cyprus, another one which i have not personally visted but friends say is very nice is acmenya located in alsancak this is another resturant which have been around for years and was one of the first in the villiage i hope this helps

warm regards

Hi Watty

obviously you know of the Pie factory actually I,m chairman and still a player at our local cricket team we decided to have a team bonding night the Saturday before the season started so hired a bus 50 of us,players and wives descended on Tipton for a black country night out.The pie factory was our first port of call with Desperate Dan cow pie swilled down with numerous pints of Lumphammer we also visited the Crooked House ,the Lamp and other places but I can,t remember their names by that time as various exotic brews Banks, ect. had taken there toll anyway a real good night was had by all and the bonding must have worked cos both teams got promoted anyone else who reads this must understand that this is a wonderful night out and not just booze cruise you are in the heart of the midlands although I,m a Warwickshire

(Gods country) lad it don,t matter we do get on with everyone and as we do in NC and the one thing that attracted us to NC is that we are welcomed by the locals for what we are sorry I,m rambling a bit now but I do get a little dismayed sometimes by people who do not understand other peoples sense of humour hey it wouldn,t do for us to be all the same but lets have some fun and leave the serious stuff on the other threads where they are helping and informing people of what they need to know and information they require

Hi ya, There is seriously no problem! Never was, never will be!



There was a misunderstanding, that needed to be put right.



Now if you guys fancy a challenge on your terms, Efes drinking competition at The Ship.



(I know I am going to regret this, especially if the wife finds out) Next time in the TRNC.



I hope my Black Country mates will join me (if not to hell) Loosers pay 50 to SOS.



(Special note for Karen.....You are thinking....Why dont they grow up...You are right!.....

hi john

i knew there was no problem just a few cross wires, my comments were at people who posted after we all kissed and made up!!!! lol

that pub crawl sounds like a good idea, you might laugh thou me being turkish i cant stand efes 3 cans and im out for the count i know im a cheap date!!!!

now if you are talking whiskey espeacially jack d then you are on we can all get tanked up and then roll down and have a ruby murry or even better a doner ke-bab (saying that in my broad cockney accent) and sing royal britania

LOL

warm regards

could be good. we'd probably only get as far as the first drinking hole though because there's a long walk between each one, especially if we start in Esentepe

Hi Bloggy,



What wrong note? Fondest memories of The Crooked House at Himley.

Enjoy your trip to TRNC. Get some practice for our booze night!

Hi Bloggy



Wynyardman is right you said nothing wrong only what you thought and you are perfectly entitled to do that. Perhaps it was me having the PMT.



Anyway its history, like you I'm heading for some "therapy"in the sun, in fact the 16th to be precise and like you cannot wait.



Cheers



Jim

Sorry I missed this one because I was in TRNC overdosing on meze and kleftico, washed down with pints of Buzbag.

If the number of Cypriots with London accents increases any more , UKturk, we will be seeing jellied eel stalls appearing soon in Girne. How can you eat that stuff?

Cor blimey,why can't you stick to good old British Vindaloo or Sweet & Sour, huh.

love a party and a drinky night at the pub but cant we leave NC as it is...go south for a night if its what we want - we bought in the north for what it is now...

the harbour and bars outside of the harbour are around if one looks, further afield I guess it needs some watering holes but keep em in character with the scenic north and not over do it. why do people buy here if they so want to change it is beyond us! x

hi pollytat

the reason why there are not any pie and mash shops in cyprus, because after all them years of living in london all the cockney london turks have had enuf of pie and mash, aswell as jeelied eels and cockels cant really blame them to tell you the truth but i must say i do love a good mince beef and onion pie with creamy mash and baked beans!!!!! come over to turkey nearly every other shop is a pie and mash shop!!!! lol

warm regards

I have bought in Cyprus as I lived/worked abroad & especially in Istanbul/Cyprus and do NOT want it to become like other European holiday

places - i.e. fatty, unhealthy food, over-drinking. The local cuisine is fabulous & there are enough of other ethnic foods to satisfy. (can cook my own Indian as married 18 years to one!)
