  1. cheers all, EVF is handy for me at Union Mills but may have to go nearly a mile (shock horror I'm Manx that's too far) out of my way to get Manx pet fuel instead...
  2. Afternoon all Not after any opinion, unusual for this forum I know, but does anyone have any facts about the quality of petrol that is sold on island? Is Regular unleaded any different to Super? Or is it the same fuel, labelled differently and sold at a higher price?

    Anyone got advice on where to get dried logs for a wood burning stove?
  4. Suppose the answer is to be inconspicuous rather than asking bar staff for glasses for the wine you've brought in board...
  5. Is it right you can't take your own grub and drinks onboard? I've always taken a packed lunch...
  6. Anyone been there yet? Thinking about a pre-Christmas visit... Any good?

    Thanks, but this only leads to threads from years ago or rants about the nature of people who have tattoos or the origins of them...could do with some recommendations about actual current tattooists operating on the rock, thanks anyway...

    Manx Tattoo virgin here...can anyone recommend who to use and who to avoid locally? Cheers
  9. Not especially. It's run on a shoestring with a skeleton staff, and it shows. On the plus side most of the staff have a rudimentary grasp of English and years ago I worked with someone who's sister had a nice meal there, so that's good too. What about The Palace? It's never occured to me to ever say in a hotel in the Isle of Man. We stayed at the new one in Ramsey a few weeks ago. Very comfortable, well appointed room. Extremely decent meal, breakfast was OK too. Free WiFi throughout - I would recommend it. Good value for a low price. Ramsey Park Hotel, agreed, stayed there 2 week
  10. Is it on ths year? Anyone got any info?
  11. "Rapper Tinie Tempah will be the headlining artist, supported by dance act Tinchy Stryder" Who??? Nah, The Who were over a few years ago when it was in Peel.
  12. Being an old fart I prefer this http://www.villagaie...ml&menuid=11570 "Tickets £37.50" - and people complain about FlyBe's fares! well impressed, great line-up, still won't be going though, already doing Elton (not literally) and Sunday afternoon
  13. just tried to sign-up but website keeps kicking me out when I go to pay, are entries full?
  14. I have been recommended to see a bloke who works out of his house in Willaston, called Geoff....is he OK or a cowboy? Don't fancy coming out in more pain than I am now, apparently he's cheap though !
  15. A shout out to anyone in the frozen north plains, whatever happened to the bowling alley in Ramsey that Sure were backing, is it up and running?
  16. not much of a surprise if she reads MF !
  17. see they are selling standing tickets OUTSIDE the tent now...all the forum nah-sayers still have a chance to see a true star perform on Island, albeit in the rain but near the beer tent
  18. try seetickets.com fella or ticketmaster :-)
  19. Did you consider asking a member of staff? Weird concept but give it a go... I see MT have signs in their windows for deals on the new windows phones but when I went in they didn't appear to be on display anywhere. Are they hidden 'under the counter' or something? The posters also didn't seem to have a 'Due on xx/11/2010' or anything like that from what I could see so no idea when they would actually have these phones. Not sure I want one at this stage given what MS have done with this OS, but would be nice to check them out and see.
