    This would make Winchester a game changer for me but it would mean a Saturday visit and I would want to have an extended stay here rather than waste time going around expensive second rate pubs in...

    My sentiments entirely. As soon as I saw London Pride included I thought "idiot"! My local Tesco does a huge range of crafty cans now After being diagnosed with a low red blood count I've been on the...

    I've come across Mad Dog a few times but have no memories of outstanding beer. Breweries in Wales seem to be collapsing and I can see more going. The trouble is that there isn't much free trade and...

    I had no problems with going to Derby but the current weather forecast for the next couple of weeks is very pessimistic. As usual London is largely unaffected. Of course, if it was it would...

    I did wonder about this. Are the Shrewsbury Hotel and the Premier Inn affected? I stayed in Shrewsbury last month and I overheard the Salopian Landlord saying how quiet he was on Xmas Eve. The new...

    It was more than just slang as everybody used it. I can well imagine John Young frowning upon it but it was a term universally used throughout their estate.

    I agree there should be a poll at the very least between Cardiff & Winchester. There is a down side to Winchester in that it's in a similar area to the last Southern outing in Portsmouth.

    Of course it was a joke!
    I don't think anywhere in SW England is worth considering as the only accessible places (Taunton & Exeter) aren't that great and anywhere West of that takes too long to get...

    Here are some figures:-

    London 51.5074° N
    Reading 51.4543° N
    Cardiff 51.4816° N

    I assume the London figure is Charing Cross but it shows that London is actually slightly North of Cardiff.

    Cardiff is much improved since the "just Brains" days although IMO there are three Brains pubs worth including. When I went to Winchester last I only really liked the JDW and the Flowerpot one near...

    Again, I don't remember! Jugs were the default until some time in the 80's (I think) and I'm sure I used to drink from them myself. I don't mind people asking to have a jug but I find the modern...

    I always tended to drink Special and it was always a sweet beer but even at Wandsworth they seemed to keep tinkering with it, whether they actually did so is another matter! I never heard any talk of...

    I reluctantly agree that it ought to be the South on the basis that Brum in Autumn doesn't get hijacked. I would have thought that the candidates from last time could be used but I'm going for...

    I won't go in Young's pubs today. I remember passing one in Bristol near a JDW and making a point of avoiding it. The rot set in around 40 years ago. The Windmill on Clapham Common used to have a...
