Yeah. Been a couple of years since I went in there. Went downhill a bit when I was there in the 90s. Used to be a lot more "dram" in the dram shop. I remember looking up at the high (unreachable) shelves at 1960s Glenlivets wondering how on Earth anyone could ever want to spend more than £100 on a bottle of whisky...(I have since done this three times) They used to have a brilliant selection of dusty old vintage ports as well.
The shop is much more wine orientated now and, as you say, more Lambrini than Dom Perignon.

This is a good place to get your mind off stuff sometimes, or just give your brain a rest without letting it switch off entirely, but don't go losing your girlfriend over it. You could always cut back on the work to give her more of your time....
