    I'm free in Feb/March except for the 1st March.

    Leicester has 9 GBG pubs in LE1 including a Slug & Lettuce ( but it is listed as selling Oakham Inferno) and certainly I don't mind another trip round Derby (12 GBG pubs in DE1). Anywhere with nice pubs and a main line station would probably do me.

    Tell us, now, how and when
    We may find the bravest men?

    I fancy making this trip for PuG meet up and I have inside knowledge of Derby pubs so I might draw up route if you all don't mind. Don't need to bring your A to Z map or whatever. Will know if I am going when the date has been made. Hope this helps.

    I worked in Derby with Derbyshire Police & CPS for a couple of years and have visited the city at least twice a year since then.

    We'll be there in January anyway.

    Froday March 1st works for me.

    And I am happy with Derby or Leicester. I have done Derby most recently so I vote for Leicester if we need to tot up for and against.

    1st February hasn't been objected to yet. I'm on holiday 8th Feb, and Quinno also objected to that (or was it the 8th March?). BF can't do 22nd Feb or 29th Mar, so that leaves 1st or 15th Feb and 15th or 22nd Mar with no objections so far. This is harder than it looked at first glance.

    15th Feb is the start of half term, so probably not a good idea transport wise.

    I don't really mind, though Leicester is slightly easier to find my £1ew specials - just need 6 week notice...

    The Guv at The Pub actually recommended checking out the S&L last time I was up; couldn't bring myself to do it...

    We will probably be staying in Leicester at some time in March as Leicester beer festival will be on. Just waiting for them to sort dates out as they are likely to change venue to the Rugby ground and will have to fit in with fixtures. Aside from that, any date in March should be ok for us.

    15th and 22nd are the only ones free in Feb. Don't mind either Derby or Leicester. Will go with the flow on that as we can get to both easily, although I personally prefer Leicester as the Salmon is fantastic.

    1st Feb is a definate no for me. 15th Feb is a ????. Both March dates (15th & 22nd) are fine at the moment. Don't mind where we go to be honest!
