The Old Thirteenth Cheshire Astley Volunteer Rifleman Corps Inn is a "long" standing inclusion in the Guinness Book of Records and so is more genuine.
The Q Inn is a much more recent addition and was obviously "designed" to give Staly' both records and give publicity to the town and itself.
But surely, to win the shortest title, it should be called just "Q" and not "The Q Inn"!
MY StalyVegas doesn't extend much beyond Stalybridge Station Buffet Bar.

Maybe I should start another thread on the whole subject
'Is life worth living? It all depends on the liver.' William James.
I was getting my usual two carriage diesel from the old platform 11 at Manchester Victoria towards Liverpool and I accidently got into the "third" carriage! I was quite shocked when it left 5 minutes early in the opposite direction. I could see my usual train stationary on the same platform as I vanished into the distance on the Leeds train.
Feeling a little fed up, I got off at the first stop and was attracted by the "buffet bar" sign directly ahead of me.
An hour or two later I was a little less fed up!
I have continued to make this "mistake" many more times since.
