    A friend of mine moved to Walkley earlier this year, not too far from the Blake Hotel, so I'm hoping I'll get a chance to visit him and check the pub out later this year.

    I had six pubs that scored a 9 this year, which seems pretty good in such a lean year for pub-going. I'm a bit surprised to find that five of the six are micropubs - not really my favourite type of...

    My worst pub this year has to be The Watersplash in St Ouen's Bay, Jersey - a beach-side pub/creche hybrid with excellent views of the sea wall, but not of the sea!

    I finished on 106 this year which is a disappointing total compared to last year's 191, but pretty good going considering I was only on 34 when all the pubs shut in March.

    I didn't mean for that to come across as a slight to those two pubs, both of which look great - I just meant that in the context of the list, which comprised nearly 60% London pubs, having just one...

    14 for me - just missing the Tabard and the list's token inclusons for Scotland and Wales. Some good pubs on there, although they could've cast their net a little wider.

    Had a mini-crawl around Dulwich this evening - the average price of a pint was comfortably north of £5.50. Why on earth didn't I just go down to my local Spoons? :(

    To be fair, although they are a small brewery, they do put on quite a lot of events such as gigs, comedy nights, markets, charity fundraisers as well as more obvious things like beer festivals,...

    I think the Antic 'closures' are only temporary. They adopted a phased reopening plan from 4th July - there were around 15 or so that opened straight away and they've been opening others as and when...

    I've made my first visit to a 'proper' pub since 10th March today (I visited a couple of keg-only industrial estate brewery taps last week which didn't really satisfy). I've had to hold off due to a...

    The only pub I consider to be my 'local' in the sense that Moby describes, is Claret & Ale, which I visit fairly regularly, often for a final pint after a day of pub crawling elsewhere.
