Fast becoming the most famous British Bar in the Balearics and reckoned by some to be among the top 10 best located pubs in the world...  the Red Rum at Barcares near Alcudia is the inspiration of this site’s unusual web address.  The proprietor, Elaine from Rotherham, has tutored her staff really well in English - just wait until your hear that wonderful adopted Spanish phrase  - “Chuffin’ ‘ell” - with a deep local accent!!!

The Red Rum Bar - Among the top 10 best situated pubs in the world..!!

English Lessons.......

By J R Booker - A Chesterfield Lad and Spireite Supporter, Especially For Us

Signora! Signora!!
Coom kweek! Shoofinella!
Zat man over zere’
He complain about a di paella!

“Go back and tell him,
There’s nowt wrong wi’ it, and, Manuel!!
It’s not shoofinella---
It’s chuffin’ ‘ell!!

I’ve telled thee that many times,
Till am blue in face!
After all these years, thi’ English
It’s a piggin’ disgrace!

Tha mecks that many mistakes,
Enough is enough!
Sit thissen darn and I’ll teach thee’
About the word “chuff”.

A chuff is a bird,
Summat like a crow.
But this is information ,
As tha dunt need to know.

I’m chuffed -------------------- I’m happy
I’m well chuffed--------------- even happier
I’m dead chuffed---------------couldn’t be happier
Chuff off------------------------- go away - quickly
Don’t give a chuff-------------- don’t care
That’s a chuff-------------------- surprisingly bad
Chuff me ------------------------- surprisingly good
You’re a chuff ------------------- an insult
Chuffin’ cum ‘ere ,lad--------- a sexual invitation
Well, I’ll be chuffed! ----------- the subject of the sexual invitation is a puff!
Chuffin’ bog off then! --------- as before, not a sexual invitation
He’s a nice chuff! --------------- he’s not nice
Chuffin’ ‘ell --------------------- summats not quite right
Chuffin’ Chesterfield ---------- they always beat Rotherham at football

So here is a sentence to help thee understand!

Chuffin’ Chesterfields  chuffin’ beat us a “chuffin’” gen!. I’m not well chuffed!  They’re nice chuffs, they are! I wish they’d chuff off back to Derbyshire. Chuff me!  We’ve still got to chuffin’ play ‘em  at their chuffin’ ground ? Chuffin’ ‘ell!!

 So, nar as tha knows how to use it,
Tell that bloke who’s paellas a bit tough,
To shurrup and gerrit etten,---------------
Cos tha dunt gi’ a chuff!!
