    In order to maintain our delusion that things will return to some sort of normal, I would not - just yet - mark this one as closed. When all restrictions are removed and you try to get a drink there...

    Agree with all that you say, except that, without checking, I think Ferguson's squeeze went round to his for a shag, not the way you had it. The result is the same whatever.

    Hey, if only they were...

    Thanks for your concern. Perhaps I should have used quote marks on "non-existent" and "harmless". As for vegetarianism, perhaps we should set up a virtual arm-wrestling contest on Zoom.

    I was at work in a betting shop in Morley, my second job - I also worked at the casino in Leeds - as my partner was at home with our two daughters; the younger one was just two months old, she's now...

    Certainly not a bargain, but if you take out the glass (£3) and delivery (say, £5) it brings the cost per pint down to £3.92 or so. I've gone for the foreign beers, which was the first category I...

    You are probably right about callousness. There's certainly a lot more of that quality than intelligence in this "government of all the talentless"*. It took 30 years for Hillsborough to reach any...

    Are you suggesting that the government deliberately arranged for people with coronavirus to be put into care homes in order to reduce the number of elderly and infirm people cluttering up the care...

    The other thing about asymptomatic spreaders is that if people routinely ignore the distancing regime and gather together in large crowds, the virus is going to get passed around more and more. The...

    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...

    Yes, making me regret leaving the pub at 9:30 when they were still open.

    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...

    I can agree or at least sympathise with a lot of what you say. Of course we all want things to be like what they were before, and the prospect of 30% or more of pubs not opening again ever will...

    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.)

    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...

    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...
