    Sorry to hear that. Is the pt job a zero hours contract in a JDW?

    The second picture nicely sums up the weather on the day.
    I forgot to mention but I noticed that the Titanic outlet on Stoke Station is now open. It's on the up (Southbound) platform so will come in...

    What's the problem? It's so simple, the Midlands is the bit in between the North and the South.
    It was nice to meet the main group in the City Arms which actually calmed down a bit after the group...

    I'm used to what the wettest parts of North Wales throws at you so I'm not that bothered. However, it does look like there will be heavy rain all day. The high winds look like they will hit Scotland...

    Have people seen the weather forecast for Friday? Courtesy of a storm called Callum it's looking abysmal in the North West for the whole day.

    Not being all that familiar with Madchester your list is very useful to me.
  7. Have you seen the prices they charge?

    Have you seen the prices they charge?
  8. I've discovered that there is a whole raft of...

    I've discovered that there is a whole raft of pubs (mostly Holts) in between Bury and the centre of Manchester that could keep be going all day along with the Bury options. My plan is to go to the...

    Thanks for clarifying that and I had suspected St Peters Square would be the key tram stop.
  10. Has a final route been decided on yet? I'm...

    Has a final route been decided on yet? I'm staying in Stockport for two nights and getting the cheap slow 08:46 train to Stoke on the Thursday.
    I'm still planning a start in Bury and have found...

    That would be due to the Seven Stars being a Lloyds. It probably doesn't matter for breakfast unless you're after a guest ale. It's not a disastrous Lloyds so you might get lucky with an interesting...
  12. I got the impression it was only ever an option...

    I got the impression it was only ever an option if it was going to be a tram based crawl.
    Last time I was in the centre of Manchester was doing the last few JDWs and it was a Friday afternoon. The...
  13. I've got my rail tickets sorted with a total cost...

    I've got my rail tickets sorted with a total cost of around £25.00 over the three days excluding my Tram journey to Bury. I'm not expecting to get to the Victoria area or the "Northern Quarter". I...

    Even the Holts pubs? The only central one I've been to is the Old Monkey.



    That's OK.

    A name I remember a lot from the past is the Lass O Gowrie. I've never been to it but is it now out of...
  16. Are the ones listed around Shade Hill all as much...

    Are the ones listed around Shade Hill all as much a rip off as the Marble Arch?
    I can't see me getting to these ones but it would be useful to know for future refenece.

    The two names that I've...

    I'm making a long weekend of it and have two nights booked at the Stockport Premier Inn. I'll be going up on the cheap slow train to Stoke and the Cross Country train from there. I'm still planning...
  18. This was meant as a side issue so let's get on...

    This was meant as a side issue so let's get on with the Manchester day. I could have made the above a bit clearer. I was thinking more of Liverpool with regard to repeat visits, my point about...
  19. I take on board all of that. I did once go to...

    I take on board all of that. I did once go to Carlisle for the day but it was the 08:30 train and my train back was before 17:00. It does seem to mean that the "North" option is restricted to only a...

    It was a serious suggestion!



    Agreed



    I've only mentioned three, the Castle, Port Steet and Marble Arch! The only others I remember from long ago are the three in Portland Street, a Hydes...
  21. I'm not really advocating Bury as a viable venue,...

    I'm not really advocating Bury as a viable venue, it's just somewhere I'd like to visit (rather like the Holy Inadequate on the NUL trip). Chorlton and Leyland has the problem of being largely...
  22. I'm going to share the two options I didn't vote...

    I'm going to share the two options I didn't vote for. The first was Chester which I didn't like much when giving it a go after the JDW Bull & Stirrup (which I knew as a Higson's pub). The second was...
  23. One of the options I'd envisaged was getting a...

    One of the options I'd envisaged was getting a tram out and then coming back and including some of the Central Manchester ones. At the moment Bury looks the best option to me. The only one I've been...
  24. I'm glad that the Manchester Tram option seems to...

    I'm glad that the Manchester Tram option seems to be winning the poll as Chorley & Leyland includes a lot of micropubs with the problems of a crowd of drunks turning up mob handed, opening times, the...

    Several Memory Management Violations must have affected my recollection of this!



    And if proof were needed there's the bold typeface!
