    Of course it was a joke!

    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...

    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 would gladly find time to take this to Trading Standards but sadly I don't think there's a case. "London will always be Young's - Estd 1831" doesn't really say anything other than that the company...

    I had a Pumphouse Pale in the George JDW yesterday and it was OK but wouldn't go near it at normal prices. Perversely I saw this in a Loughborough Tap / Micropub. The Landlord had never seen or heard...

    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...

    I hope there were no potty mouth utterances at the brewery when they heard this judgement.
