    I did the same in April 1973, Easter I think. It snowed and settled right down to the coast. It all melted the next day apart from the higher points.

    National Bass Day

    The Real Ale Twats are alive and well and THIS is one of them. I don't know who this geezer is but it would make sense if he replaced the i and c in his web address with the final two letters and I...

    All credit to them I say. I hope my new local micropub bans them when it opens. Trains shouldn't have a quiet carriage but a single noisy one so that anyone caught using a phone or any noisy device...

    Before Llanberis had a supermarket the town chemist used to sell bottles of spirits. This was in the days of dry Sunday and the massive hypocrisy on drinking generated by the "Chapel".

    It's mainly been in smaller towns with a Lloyds and a standard one near each other. The one that goes has tended to be the Lloyds but it depends on profitability and whether it's Leasehold. There are...

    Just the London George and the Belfast Crown for me. I wouldn't return to either.

    I don't remember that but I do remember Boots home brew kits which resulted in a product that made Doom Bore nectar.
    When I used to brew beer in the 1970s it was with a mixture of malt extract and a...

    I'm not qualified to answer this but I would imagine the answer is Yes. I'm guessing that the upgrade work is mainly signalling but even as it moves North it will still affect services. I'm not...

    I didn't know about that as I never travel on a Sunday. The whole thing is looking too expensive and slow.

    For those not averse to JDWs, the Grey Friar is opposite the Black Bull if I remember rightly. For those not going to the Concertina it might make a better starting point than the Old Vic which can...

    It won't be a viable target for me on the day but I could get to it on arrival in late march.

    Indeed it is! One of the last items they got via enterprise was the keg of Old Tom which they could get via them but not a cask.

    It's basically a malt and hop extract brew but with temperature control built in. I'd be amazed if it tastes as good as the real thing and I suspect the type of tap water will be a factor.

    There's a major project to upgrade the lines outside Kings Cross taking place throughout this year. That means weekend trains are either reduced or starting from Peterborough. Even if Network Rail...

    Old Boots craftily sneaked up to 2000 reviews yesterday and nobody seems to have noticed! Well done OB!!

    You'll be looking to travel on the :30 Scotland trains. I would forget about the 08:30 but you never know. I use TFW rail for advance tickets as they post them to you. There are currently advance...

    It's probably to do with engineering work. The same happened last year with trains out of Euston and it's worse at weekends. To me it's not worth travelling without the advance tickets.

    I tend to agree with that. I would only go to the Continental if I could get a bus there but the Vic opens at 10:00 rather than midday.

    When I visited Preston 5 years ago I went to the Old Black Bull which was probably GBG listed at the time. It's close to the Black Horse etc, but has it gone to pot?
