    Halloween, the event that justifies having decorations up for a weekend at most. Not a month.

    The first time I was in The Lower Angel in Warrington it was full of skeletons, cobwebs, broomsticks...

    I think I'd rather go out for a pint with Hopkins to be honest, and that is saying something.

    I always thought Ms Cole she was from Liverpool but according to her Twitter profile she is based in...

    I can't stand the woman, to be honest. She comes across as the kind of woman you would not want to have any kind of conversation with as she'll just be waiting for an opportunity to take something...

    It makes a very good point.

    Though in fairness it doesn't seem like the kind of pub to attract a lot of bother anyway.

    Bloody hell, who'd have thought taking some pub photos would be such a dangerous business?

    I'm guessing you must have disturbed some local drug dealers or something to get that kind of reaction.

    Tip of the day here folks, and something I tend to do myself.

    You can't get a funny look once you've left the building!

    Aha, funny you should mention that, I noticed this earlier myself and am sure it hasn't worked for a few days but didn't think much of it in case it was just me.

    Looks like it has been fixed, as...
  13. Great Ale -> One For The Road, Bolton

    Great Ale at the Market in Bolton is now known as One For The Road.

    Also, the official web site URL can be deleted as it doesn't seem to be related to the bar in question.

    To be honest I tend to try and keep it quick and discreet when taking photos, to avoid the potential for the kind of experience referred to above.

    I am not sure if it was on this site or...

    I know I used to enjoy it. This was mid to late 90s so after the Whitbread acquisition but before the reduction from 3.8% to 3.5% ABV.

    It's funny you should mention Boddingtons, a chap I used to work for was a big fan of Boddingtons Bitter and Boddingtons Gold, which eventually lured me away from the lagers I was drinking at the...

    I'm not disagreeing - I love a good pub sign and like seeing the photos of them on here. They are part of the history of the pub and often change over time and it's good to be able to look back and...

    I think you've hit the nail on the head. It's nostalgic and people have a soft spot for nostalgia. People see it in a pub and think "ooh you don't see that very often these days" and get lured into...

    A blurry photo is always going to be crap and often worse than no photo at all. The same with bus window photos, especially where the bus is moving and the window is dirty and the camera lens is...

    I think Mickleover off list 2 and Wirksworth off list 3 is about my lot.

    I've been to a couple of places off list 1 but I don't recall venturing into any of the pubs there.

    Yeah I'm well aware of that thank you, but many people do expect a basic preview and manipulation tool as part of the photo upload process on a modern web site.

    I was just suggesting that if that...

    A load of fuss over nothing.

    If I go into a Wetherspoon pub I'm not going to order Ruddles just because it is cheaper. Nor am I going to abandon other pubs and other breweries (craft or...
