    I did almost exactly the same, but I can't say the Pistonhead did very much for me - no wonder it is in 6's.

    Some doubt about the George & Vulture, which by 1990 had become a "former public house, now a restaurant" despite retaining its historic name. Has it actually reverted to being a pub, or is our...
