    Default Pub Of The Month - March 2012

    Well after the Liverpool jaunt, surely this month will throw up a few candidates.

    Sneaking this one in from a random pub crawl on the last weekend in february. The Duchess of Cambridge 6 real ales on tap and 9 on gravity plus 9 ciders. Welsh breweries were featured to coincide with the six nations rugby taking place that weekend. Located just along from Stamford Brook underground station. Well worth a visit

    Lots of good pubs in Liverpool. Enjoyed the White Lion, Vernon and Fly in the Loaf. In Leicester this weekend where the Salmon is a good contender for the title. York tomorrow, and then Durham. Will have to see how things go. Think the Salmon has it so far.

    I'm green with envy... I will make a flying visit to York next week, but I don't think a pub visit is on the agenda.

    Thanks for that Gill, I aim to revisit Leicester as soon as I can get cheapy cheap tickets; the Salmon will be a new one (to me) for my list.

    The Salmon (19 Butt Close Lane) has gone into the 2012 Good Beer Guide, and deserves the place. Longstop (9 Church Gate) is not far from it either. They are both up from the central Clock Tower. Longstop had the new Mad Mushroom brewery and a couple of Julian Church beers plus a variety of other micros when we had a few visits this weekend while at the festival.

    In York for a week from today, so should get to a few of the good pubs there. Last visit was only 3 days and we didn't get far from York Tap!!

    My pub of the month is the Fox and Goose at Illston on the Hill.

    This is a proper old pub with loads of character and a landlord to match,he also let us in at 11.20 in the morning when the pub should open at 12.00

    The Sparrow in Bradford is a definite contender.

    Not a pub, but a beer cafe, like the Northern Quarter bars in Manchester that we spend so much time in.
