    I did almost exactly the same, but I can't say the Pistonhead did very much for me - no wonder it is in 6's.

    Some doubt about the George & Vulture, which by 1990 had become a "former public house, now a restaurant" despite retaining its historic name. Has it actually reverted to being a pub, or is our...

    October was not great for new reviews with just 6, largely due to concentrating on near locals so only a few gaps filled in. November will be worse with just the one added today, prior to lockdown.

    One of my much-cherished Gale's 'corkers' did that some years ago, but it was a more normal hazard of corked bottles than tins. Luckily my remaining hoard survives!

    The much-renamed Rook's Nest has now become the latest in Big Smoke's portfolio, which sees it much improved and returned to the original name of the Prince of Wales. Should be worth a visit, and...

    Some of their brews are 'inspired by' beers of the past, but I do not believe they are supposed to be direct recreations. The outfit also apparently own the rights to Homes, Matty Brown and...
