    Sad news about the brewery. Unfortunately that link is to an article behind a paywall.

    A couple of surprises this week, with good or even excellent beers found unexpectedly.

    On Monday, on a mission to photograph a new (2014!) Marstons estate pub, the Winter Green, I had a very good...

    I've had to use cash a few times recently. Some pubs have a lower limit for cards and one pint (or one half!) is below their limit, although plenty of other pubs are happy to accept a card for £1.70....

    Erm, the point about putting on a disguise is that no one should know in advance what the disguise will be and who is wearing it. But thanks for the tip - I'll keep an eye out for you.

    Yes, that's what I did with a Christmas pop-up pub in Sheffield a few years back. Though I didn't remember to mark it as closed until long after New Year. (Should have set an alarm on my calendar!)...

    Rather you than me, with eight pubs on your itinerary! Also it will be dark by the time the others leave the last pub in Somerton. Maybe I'm just getting too cautious in my old age.

    Just seen a recent (well, two months old) review by oldboots of the Royal Children in Nottingham; good timing as I will be in that city on Tuesday for a Luton Town game. Will definitely give this one...

    Done. I was going to say are we sure it's a pub, but WhatPub says it has a real ale, so I guess it is.

    Well, yes. But on the other hand, kids don't generally stick their noses in your nether regions or lick your hand. But perhaps the kids you've come across are different. :)

    I've read quite a number of the reviews, in fact probably all of them in Berwick! Well done - boldly going where Al 10000 had not been. I was sad to see that the Barrels, formerly Berwick's liveliest...

    After a recent trip to Putney I can now see where you're coming from, John. Lovely pubs, but the cask ales were, if not a second thought, certainly not a priority. I mean, if you don't take the...

    I must have missed that when I skimmed through the piece trying to avoid adverts. Well spotted, Jim.

    I respect your right to stick to your guns, but I don't accept your categorisation of Rob Hunter's review as "drivel", a "whinge", a "fit of pique" or a "moan". I see it as a reasonable reaction to a...
