    What constitutes a substantial meal, and do you have to eat it?

    My first pub experience under the new rules yesterday. I went to one of the few pubs near me that is still open. Greeted at the door by one of the barmen. "Are you here for a beer?" Me: "No, I'm here...

    Look at the unexpected demise of Great Heck a few months back, for example (pre-Covid-19, too).

    This was a Government information piece, and not written by anyone working at the Guardian. Sorry if I didn't make this as clear as I thought I had.

    Well, you can, but it's against government advice: "you should try to avoid travelling outside the very high alert level area you are in".

    OK, it's a "should" rather than a "must", but in a...

    Cupboard is almost too full for me to get in there, and there are boxes scattered around the kitchen. I reckon I've got enough to see me through.

    Tier 3 regulations arrive in Sheffield

    Sheffield enters Tier 3 at 00:01 tomorrow morning, so I went out for a few beers this afternoon, before things got crazy. First stop was the Crow Inn, but they had a very sparse selection - still...

    Covid-19 pub crawl in York

    I'm glad that I decided to support York pubs (and the train operating companies) by spending Sunday afternoon on this pub crawl. Mostly it was fine - beer was good, the welcome and the application of...

    Covid-19 pub crawl in York - Golden Ball

    Last pub of the day, before my 15 minute walk to the station, was the Golden Ball, another York pub with fond memories for me. The bar counter was off limits, but the pump clips were helpfully...

    Covid-19 pub crawl in York - Swan

    We were just a couple of minutes behind schedule and had to cross the river again to the Swan. This is a lovely pub with a large drinking corridor, which I am sure has not had tables in it before....

    Covid-19 pub crawl in York - Phoenix Inn

    Next on the list was the Phoenix Inn, one of my favourites when in York, just inside the city walls and thankfully away from the city centre's madness – no cake here. Our welcome here and in the...

    We made our way to the next pub on the list, but were disappointed to find a piece of paper attached to the door of the Blue Bell on Fossgate, saying that the pub was not open because it was too...

    Covid-19 pub crawl in York - Market Cat

    Next was the Thornbridge pub, the Market Cat. Four or five young people were sharing the duties: doorman, front of house, waiting and pouring. The door person asked us if we lived together. A quick...

    Covid-19 pub crawl in York - Burns Hotel

    Formerly the Hansom Cab and now the Burns Hotel, this pub seems virtually unchanged since my last visit in 2012. The barman asked if we were from the same household; not really, we replied. Then...

    Covid-19 pub crawl in York - The Maltings

    I arrived at the Maltings at 12:38 (my train was due to arrive at 12:32, not 12:38) to find a tape across the doorway and a note saying “Please wait here, we'll be with you soon” or words to that...
