Far Corfe is a mythical village in Dorset and location of the the most idyllic pub in England – “”The Frog & Quantity Surveyor’s Arms & Head”. Similar to Brigadoon except it’s there all the time but, in the same way as the rainbow’s end, it’s impossible to get to. I know, because I’ve tried… Time and again I entered some cosy little pub and approached a camouflage clad, baseball cap wearing local as he leant jauntily on his Land Rover (why it was in the bar they wouldn’t say). Time and again I showed them the dog eared card with the pub’s name (which you must never say aloud). Time and again they would point and say “Far Corfe”… I would drive like the wind, but never, ever find that which I seek.
