    There's only two definite new openings on their web site, both expected in April. They are Cross Gates in Leeds and Kingswinford. The big new Dublin hotel has no fixed date but they are hoping for a...

    I'm probably in some sort of bubble but I'm not sure what it is!
    BBBs are currently unfashionable but that doesn't mean there aren't plenty of good ones around. The problem is that there is one very...

    That's akin to asking me to participate in the production of a selfie!
    I do have a mobile phone but it doesn't take pictures or support "apps".
    It annoys me intensely when so many organisations...

    Advance tickets are now available on the fast trains from and to Euston up to 17th April but not Saturday 18th. I couldn't get an advance ticket to Preston but the online super off peak is only 2...

    Having a National Bass Day is not harmlessly stating the opinion of a beer but wilfully trying to inflict it on other people which it will do if it's a runaway success. I wouldn't call it rabid...

    No mention of Guinness which is sacrosanct to Irish drinkers. I bet they wished they hadn't closed the Park Royal brewery.

    It was meant to be irreverent rather than spiteful, so that went well!
    This sort of stuff isn't harmless because the Bass today bears zero resemblance to the Bass of the glory days mentioned. Foe a...

    I'd like to know how many of these pubs actually use freshly carved meat as opposed to microwaved slices. My local boozer the Bell certainly uses reheated food but how many pubs don't? People slag...

    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...

    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...

    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.
