    I've been in the Blake Hotel tonight, one of my most-visited pubs since 4 July - which is not saying a lot, as I've only been in 57 pubs and only five of them more than twice.

    Finally reached three figures (101), but it's tough these days, especially in tourist areas at busy times. I'm just back from a week away - two days in the Lakes, five in Scotland. The pub I wanted...

    Just back from a camping trip in Scotland, and just for once I hired a car because I'm fed up with wearing a mask on the train. So I was able to bring a few goodies back with me. My route back from...

    Yes, very well done. I remember looking at the league table a couple of weeks ago and saw that he was about to catch the late Alan Winfield, so there's a tinge of sadness mixed in with this moment of...

    My first drink in Shakespeare's in Sheffield since reopening. Nothing very interesting on cask (Barnsley Bitter and a couple from Abbeydale Brewery), so I had a look at the keg offerings. Went for...

    It's difficult, because if you wait until they start misbehaving it's hard to sort it out, so I can see why a ban on younger children would make sense. She's still allowing under-12s on Sundays, so...

    I very rarely write reviews of pubs that I go to on pub crawls. Especially on PuG crawls, as I know that half a dozen others will be writing reviews so I don't feel the need to write one myself. But...

    Sounds like you may have been lucky to have avoided entering there - could have been some sort of weird swinging session.

    Received my beers and glass today, plus a free packet of crisps. The glass looks even worse than I thought, like one of those Christmas highball glasses with snowflakes, for people who only drink...

    Well, it's bad enough that the design "celebrates" the virus, but in my view it's also a very bad design. What were they thinking of?

    That's a little harsh. Perhaps he doesn't speak unless he's got something important to say - or at least interesting. Unlike us lot.

    That's terrible. I'm not surprised your wife doesn't want you going to the pub. Take care - both of you.

    Should have sent them up to me. Plenty of room in my cupboard-under-the-stairs! And it's about the right temperature.

    In the pub with Françoise Hardy on your mind

    Liked this one from Brainypool at Café René in Gloucester:

    Quirky. Calls itself ‘le pub’, has wine bottles covering the walls, French posters everywhere. It simply has to be tongue in cheek,...

    Written across the photo on Facebook: "we are being chastised and it's not fair" - do they by any chance mean "victimised"? Or "picked on"? Need to retake that GCSE English, I think.
