    I did wonder about this. Are the Shrewsbury Hotel and the Premier Inn affected? I stayed in Shrewsbury last month and I overheard the Salopian Landlord saying how quiet he was on Xmas Eve. The new...

    It was more than just slang as everybody used it. I can well imagine John Young frowning upon it but it was a term universally used throughout their estate.

    I agree there should be a poll at the very least between Cardiff & Winchester. There is a down side to Winchester in that it's in a similar area to the last Southern outing in Portsmouth.

    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...

    Again, I don't remember! Jugs were the default until some time in the 80's (I think) and I'm sure I used to drink from them myself. I don't mind people asking to have a jug but I find the modern...

    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...
