    ohhh.. new pub! I last visited Bewdley in last year August. I wonder that old cafe sits next door to Fish and Chips by bridge.

    Have you been to WoodColliers pub up the hill in Bewdley? Real gem and around 6 handpulls.

Doing a few pubs in Maidstone next Sunday and looks like the Society Rooms is the meeting point so that will be 102. After that, no idea.
    30 years?! First JDW opened in 1978 somewhere in London.

    It took me 15 years to reach 100 (that time JDW was relatively unknown) after slow start and number of JDWs I have visited really took off in early 2000's.

    My first JDW was The Standing Order, Derby in 1995 and I was 16 (I know I was underage but hey everyone has done it eh?) I remember the price of Carling was 99p!

    I can't actually remember my first but it was probably the Elbow Room in Tottenham - still a pub but no longer a 'Spoons - one of my 4 ex-Spoons.
