    Covid-19 pub crawl in York

    I'm glad that I decided to support York pubs (and the train operating companies) by spending Sunday afternoon on this pub crawl. Mostly it was fine - beer was good, the welcome and the application of...

    Covid-19 pub crawl in York - Golden Ball

    Last pub of the day, before my 15 minute walk to the station, was the Golden Ball, another York pub with fond memories for me. The bar counter was off limits, but the pump clips were helpfully...

    Covid-19 pub crawl in York - Swan

    We were just a couple of minutes behind schedule and had to cross the river again to the Swan. This is a lovely pub with a large drinking corridor, which I am sure has not had tables in it before....

    Covid-19 pub crawl in York - Phoenix Inn

    Next on the list was the Phoenix Inn, one of my favourites when in York, just inside the city walls and thankfully away from the city centre's madness – no cake here. Our welcome here and in the...

    Covid-19 pub crawl in York - Red Lion

    We made our way to the next pub on the list, but were disappointed to find a piece of paper attached to the door of the Blue Bell on Fossgate, saying that the pub was not open because it was too...

    Covid-19 pub crawl in York - Market Cat

    Next was the Thornbridge pub, the Market Cat. Four or five young people were sharing the duties: doorman, front of house, waiting and pouring. The door person asked us if we lived together. A quick...

    Covid-19 pub crawl in York - Burns Hotel

    Formerly the Hansom Cab and now the Burns Hotel, this pub seems virtually unchanged since my last visit in 2012. The barman asked if we were from the same household; not really, we replied. Then...

    Covid-19 pub crawl in York - House of the Trembling Madness

    On entering House of the Trembling Madness we were addressed by two young men who were busy serving behind and in front of a counter that seemed to be entirely covered with cake. No, we told them, we...

    Covid-19 pub crawl in York - The Maltings

    I arrived at the Maltings at 12:38 (my train was due to arrive at 12:32, not 12:38) to find a tape across the doorway and a note saying “Please wait here, we'll be with you soon” or words to that...

    OK, so you'll have time for one in the York Tap if you feel so inclined! I'll see you in the Maltings unless I hear from you to the contrary. (I've sent you a PM with my phone number.)

    It would be great to see you! Though we would have to communicate by shouting from opposite tables, I guess.

    If you read further down the thread you'll see that it appears to have been quiet most of the day. And House of the Trembling Madness likewise. I feel I ought to do something about this, so I'm...

    Yeah, luckily I've got plenty of beer in the cupboard under the stairs! In the meantime I'm supporting my local pubs as much as I can, without taking any risks, of course.

    Nice to hear from you, Gill. Seems like years since I saw you and Ray at the beer festival in Birmingham, but it was only eight months ago.

    You got me there, Gill, with your Amundsen Desert. I'm thinking, hmm, the ice deserts of Antarctica. Or beers made of sand and cactus. Dessert beers!!! Dessert in a can series. Glad you've found...

    On a couple of occasions last week I had to log in again - normally I am logged in continuously. Since then it's gone back to normal. Don't know what caused that.
