Subject: Bashing the Bishop
I'm no expert on Ely's palace I fear, as my knowledge of it stems from
the condensed history of it found above the fireplace in The Mitre
(which one could read while attempting to catch mine host's eye for a
refill) and the view through the Bishop's tree in the corner of the bar.
There is indeed a Cambridge connection now mainly in the realms of
folklore than reality though - as several jewellery robbers have found
to their cost when attempting to seek sanctuary from the Met having
bungled their business in Hatton Garden. Also the ale in Cambridge is
(marginally) better. Strawberries are sold in the Sir Christopher
Hatton just round the corner but the source of these escapes me.
