    Trying a Love Lane Berliner Baltic, from the latest Lidl festival, and sadly it is the nastiest thing I have had for some time. I expected it to be a bit tart, but this contrives to be very sour and...

    Indeed - playing it fairly safe at the moment with those publicly claiming to be open, but still running into closed pubs, lack of ales (Doom Bore, GKIPA or nothing - not much difference) queuing,...

    A rather better list than the previous ones, although just six for me: Square & Compass, Pandora, Ship, Pump House, Mortal Man and the Anchor. Went to the Final Whistle between lockdowns last year...

    OK, if we are bringing this thread up to date, aside from pubs failing to be open when expected, my current greatest gripe is the pointless one-way system. Yes, it might look good to have something...

    Well I for one like seeing old pictures of pubs, especially if the pubs aren't there to see any more.

    Did we ever crack the issue of how to backdate photos?

    Incidentally, I just came across...

    Very sad news. I met him on several PuG crawls and we seemed to be on a similar wavelength (not to mention both being somewhat ancient, hairy and overweight!). Definitely on for a memorial pint or...

    Well that's already prompted me to knock one more off, restoring Surrey to 100% and getting my first review of the year in (albeit an update of a 'holding' one). There could be hope for 2021 yet!
