    Errrr, I don't drive. I have been to Galway nearly 40 years ago. It wasn't my favourite place in Ireland.

    I'm pretty sure it's been going over 30 years. It used to have two bars and the old public bar on the right was one of the earliest No Smoking areas. I seem to recall it had a tie with Nethergate...

    Four for me, Churchill, Cambridge Blue (ruined IMO), Cumberland Arms and the Alexandra.

    I don't really know Warrington but have never got the impression there's much there. Wakefield has some great options but are there enough? Considering the size of Preston I'm not sure it's that...

    Galway will be a real pig to get to. I don't even know where Hamilton is but assume it's somewhere in Scotland's populous central area.

    I'd agree with that, it's a handy place as a base and has an impressive Rail Station but that's about it.

    To be fair to the hack, not all Kent outlets have one of those pub histories. It's just possible that the author may have actually visited them all.
    Kent JDWs have proved resilient with only two...

    Yes that non-stop blast to Warrington BQ certainly speeds it up. I was thinking more of those who have to use X Country or other services.

    I actually believe there is a fair amount of public support for taking the railways back into public ownership especially if it's achieved by just letting the existing franchises run out. The trouble...

    If we're talking Midlands then I would add Loughborough & Stourbridge.
    Surely Tod to Bradford inclusive is too much? I would have chosen just Sowerby Bridge and Hebden Bridge. It might be easier to...

    No I haven;t, I couldn't stomach ploughing through all of Protz's sycophantic drivel but saw no sign of an apology or an honest admission as to why they watered it down. The restoration of it had...

    It's not the pubs that I find horrific with Batemans but specifically their brown beers. I quite like the Salem Porter & Mild and a golden one that I can't remember the name of. It's the XB, XXXB &...

    I've also noticed that the area seems to attract a share of journalists and media types, despite the not so great journey into London.
  15. RIP Virgin Trains

    Virgin Trains are no more. Having given up the ECML franchise and kept out of this franchise due to their involvement with Stagecoach, the fast trains from Euston are now to be run by Avanti West...

    I'm happy to miss out the South!
    I can see why SH has gone for Lincoln this time for similar reasons to the above. Given that it's in the North Eastern sector of the Midlands, if it doesn't get...

    It's become fairly common for pubs not to open on Monday, less so on Tuesday. Even JDWs have their Monday club to try and get people in.
    The Cotswolds is an area I generally avoid, although I do...

    I'm looking forward to the Seven Stars more! Hopefully it will be a 12:00 opener so I can bypass the bonrshaker.
    Digressing slightly, I read that the Stourbridge & Halesowen CAMRA branch is going...

    I'll go along with a northern venue for Spring as long as it doesn't mean a southern venue in Summer. Lincoln is far enough north for me to accept it as the North but I struggle a bit to enthuse...

    You've put into words something that crossed my mind as soon as I saw this thread. However, there's always the odd exception, Wigan Central and The King Arthur for example. The King Arthur had the...

    It wasn't me your honour!!
    That one at Cantom is a real drinking den. They only do a limited menu and I felt quite out of place with a Fish Friday.

    There's a clue in the comments on the above about what resides where Becky's was. The opening of the Wheatsheaf is mentioned on the former premises of Becky's Dive Bar.

    I'm going for (of all things) a Brain's pub. The City Arms has Brain's beers at the sides of the bar but six guests at the front. I only gave it a 7 in the review last year but it's much better than...

    Apart from micropubs and some brewery taps there are virtually no new pubs aimed at cask ale drinkers. Wetherspoons cater for cask drinkers but also food punters and families. The best "new" pubs are...
