    This reminds me that the Birmingham Plus Bus ticket also covers tram fares (Adult: £3.40, Railcard holder: £2.25). Anyone else who, like me, is entitled to free bus travel, note that trams are only...

    It's a bit different for dogs. For humans, the point is to give people information that will allow them to understand for themselves that the course of action being proposed is the right thing to do....

    Personally, I prefer proper pubs to tap rooms. The latter are ok if doing a bit of research for yourself, but on a crawl I would rather go to pubs.

    That's a quote from the lyrics of Rage Against The Machine's Killing in the Name. Great stuff!

    Crikey, Gill. That's 15 pubs. Not sure I have the stamina these days!



    Thanks Gill, that'd be great.

    Not sure how much of that article is kosher. They refer to pubs reopening fully in May, but that was with table service. Full resumption of normal trade was delayed from June until July but the...

    That was one idea. I suggested another. Nothing is set in stone!

    The point is, if doing the Bull/Gunmakers after Bartons, how do we get to the next pub and which is it to be. It seemed to me there...

    Ha ha!

    It's normally me suggesting an extra pub that's only a short bus ride away and everyone else saying, No, I think we'll stay where we are. :)

    When I did the Bartons Arms in 2018 with the...

    Well done for dipping your toe in the water!

    Just a thought (and I haven't looked into this very deeply): The Bull and the Gunmakers are not far from the Wellington.

    Then (this is a bit...

    Please don't take it seriously, Dave. Ratings have always been a fairly crude tool, and even amongst those of us who have reviewed hundreds of pubs there is no consistency as to what a 5, a 6 or a 7...

    Snow White appears to be asleep. Perhaps too much work on these lists.

    To be fair, you visited the pubs in early August but didn't get around to posting the reviews until a month later, and now you want the list updating by (let me check) the day before yesterday? :p

    I hadn't looked at this list before, so thanks for the nudge.

    I was surprised to see https://www.pubsgalore.co.uk/pubs/73890/ on the list at number 19, having recently read Ian Mapp's review of...

    Yes, it looks that way. It's not closed as there was a gazebo and some barrels standing in front of the pub, making it look likely to open later, so I guess it's no longer a Greene King pub. Which...

    Mine's been cancelled. The bookseller discovered that they'd already sold it to someone else! (Probably Tris.)

    OK, giving this discussion a little nudge. I was in Wirksworth today, after my planned crawl in Derby with a friend was cancelled at short notice and I went to Belper instead. (Very good pubs in...
