    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.

    Perhaps what some people forget is that not everybody is retired and has the time to spend mooching round pubs all day waiting for the optimum lighting conditions in order to take a super artistic...

    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...

    I managed 20 new places in July and August, bringing my current total for the year to 83.

    There is every chance of a slowdown now but would be nice to reach 100 by the end of the year.

    I find if you go in on the day they launch the new stock (usually a Thursday I think) you get the best chance of getting everything. They certainly seemed to have everything that was listed in the...

    Magic Rock Tap, Huddersfield

    Not a dead link as such, but Magic Rock Tap has two official links listed, one of which is the WhatPub link which is already listed separately and should probably be removed.

    I managed to pick up one of everything I haven't tried before, and duplicates of ones I know I have enjoyed previously.

    A few in the list have been in previous Lidl beer festivals, some have been...
