    I never said they were any good !!!
    The best pubs are in the surrounding villages , in town the Shakespere is ok as is the Pheasant , the Bridge is getting a decent rep , The Railway and Kings Head are locals , Locals and can be a bit intimadating the others are variable , Ozzys is named after its previous owner a certain Mr Osbourne

    Does Newport have buses that goes to Wolverhampton?

    You want a Booths, that's what you want, lots of choice.

    I was talking about food products, but the beer choice at this little triangle of clones is even worse. Booths? Looks like my nearest store is in Knutsford!

    I know I want one, I wish they'd get a bit further South than Knutsford.

    Couldn't believe it when I first went in search of beer in the Ulverston branch and discovered an entire aisle. Must have been at least 150 different beers, took me ages to decide what to get.

    Food products? I've got a wife who gets that sort of stuff

    This morning I got Copper Dragon Pippin, Elgoods Cambridge, Fullers 1845, Ulverston's Another fine mess and Tirrell's Brewshers Bitter before I went for a cracking pint of Rudgate Viking.

    What about the "Beers by Post" companies? Cheaper than a day out up the M6.

    Independent off licence shop in Bewdley was real gem! They had well over hundreds of bottled real ales and most of them I never heard of. Took me well over half hour to select 3 bottles! I won't mind go back there again.
