    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...

    I don't remember any of these. The only large tins I can recall from the 60s are the Watney's Party 7 and I think there was a smaller size. The presence of Watney's mild probably pushes the date...

    There's a fair few in East London nowadays, even more if you take the short trip over the River Lea into Tottingham. I've only been to one or two in East London and none in the rest of London.
