    A slow start to June, with just 22 new pubs in the first half of the month, and with a holiday in Scotland and the Lake District (23rd to 29th) I knew I would have to pull my finger out. Five in the...

    Ha ha! Well spotted! But how would they have recognised Tris now that he's wearing "a hipster beard, ...a checked shirt and [has] EC2 tattooed on [his] wrist"?

    I've had several Pohjala beers, and they're pretty much all for sipping! Worth every penny, though.

    Four of Derbyshire's finest real ale pubs in one afternoon.

    Not quite Belper (see this thread #517), but another trip to the same part of the world. This is pencilled in for Wednesday 6th July, or possibly two weeks later on the 20th, depending on whether...

    I went to the Admiral Vernon with one of my Luton Town mates in February 2009, before a game that we lost 2-1 in the season when we were relegated from the Football League. He was into heritage pubs...

    I only speak as I find, John. It was bloody gorgeous, and I'm still regretting not having a pint instead of a half.

    Started last week with a couple of beers from the last ever batch from Kelham Island Brewery at the Fat Cat. Both Kelham Best and Pale Rider were in tip top condition.

    Next day was Acorn Barnsley...

    When I was in London last November I had beers in nine pubs, mostly Putney, and they averaged £5.20 a pint.

    It was much the same in January (a bit under £5), February (£5.15) and March (£5.20)...

    I had a couple of halves in Pudsey for £1 and £1.20 respectively. In the Sam Smiths pub I paid a whopping £1.50 for a half. These were all keg beers.

    I haven't seen any £1.79 pints in Yorkshire.

    That'd be 20 I reckon, Jim. When I came to Sheffield in late '97 I worked across the road at an office above the casino, and I started going to the New Barrack Tavern around May 1998. At that time it...

    One that you and I also liked was coincidentally called the Victoria, at Great Harwood (Blackburn). One of my rare 10s, but it didn't quite reach Spinal Tap levels, like the Durham one did.

    Yes, you wrote (20 Aug '21): "Unspoilt in every way, the kind of gem that you don’t find too often." This is spot on. Too many really beautiful pubs have nothing much on the beer front, or it's dead...

    The Victoria in Durham. So good that I went for a second beer while on a crawl that eventually ran to 14 pubs. "... it's a shame that 10 is the maximum rating available on reviews on Pubs Galore. I...

    No new pubs since last week, when a ridiculous 14 in Durham on Tuesday were followed by 10 in Knaresborough on Thursday (a two day Winfield?), making my May total 73 and year to date 266. Aiming for...
