    I wasn't actually referring to 20 March. I meant leaving the pub I was in last night, coming home and logging on here to be reminded by oldboots that we were all revisiting the 14th century, as far...

    I haven't adapted my spreadsheets to collect this information, but on a rough count I've been to just short of 30 different pubs since 4 July, several of them more than once (I've been on holiday,...

    A couple of my local pubs started off with asking people to scan QR codes but met so much resistance that they just fell back on the obvious (but not secure) pad of paper. I liked one pub where there...

    This was certainly true of the early scare about huge numbers of cases in, for example, Sheffield and in the Morecambe Bay area, but this has since been shown to be the result of a more rigorous...

    Afternoon is the only time to visit that one. As I pointed out in my review of 25th August 2011. (What a long time ago that was. When a pint was just £2.95. In London.)

    George Inn

    A pub in one of my favourite parts of the world, Upper Wharfedale. Only visited once before, when we (me and my partner and our young children) had a dreadfully poor meal on her...

    Went to the Gardeners Rest this afternoon, but I forget to check their opening time, which is now 5pm at this time of week, so went to the Fat Cat instead. After a very nice pint of Kelham Island...

    Went in the Shakespeares after meeting two mates at the Crow Inn today. The Covid precautions were fine, but the only cask beer on the blackboard that I was interested in was "off", and the keg...

    I haven't been to many yet, notable omissions being the Kelham Island Tavern and Shakespeares. I hope to do the latter this afternoon or tomorrow. The Crow Inn was good when I was there a couple of...

    I want to do the crawl, but it's going to need a change in the current regime to make it both workable and pleasant. I think there's a fair chance things could be worse by November rather than better...

    A visit to the Cutlers Arms in Rotherham today for a few pints of Chantry beers with a couple of mates. Still just £2.50 a pint, and the tram/train is free now that I've got my bus pass. A good few...
