    Default Streetview pops in for a pint!

    Prompted by Boak & Bailey, I've now made a quick tour of The Marble Arch in Manchester - by Streetview! Look out for an orange pip on Google maps to see where you can go indoors - The Cricketers in Brighton is another one and I daresay some of you will spend part of the evening checking out your local area (Horsham - one lighting shop and, er, that's it).

    I shall now demand, quite unreasonably, that Dave adds some sort of 'on Streetview' indicator to all pub pages here for us to spend our lives updating.

    I have just made the very familiar trip through th Marble Arch. Nice to see it as full as usual.

    Now I am making my first ever visit to the Cricketers at Brighton. It is empty and I can't see any bar staff!!
    Decided to leave without having a drink. I wasn't thirsty anyway!

    Does anyone know of any more? Is it just a few or are there thousands?

    I really like this feature - should help jog the memory when trying to decipher notes in order to write a review!

    There don't seem to be too many places signed up to it yet - I could only find The Spreadeagle in my hometown.

    However, the Navigation Brewery in Nottingham have set this up for all of their pubs including The Cross Keys, The Approach, The Southbank Bar and Trent Navigation. You can also tour the brewery which is opposite the Trent Navigation.

    The [famous] Harp is also on there - I had hoped to take my first visit upstairs but, alas, the views are ground floor only.

    A few moments on the web at work suggested that Google are accepting uploads in this format from Samsung Galaxy phones, so I guess it's up to licencees or pub companies (or shop owners etc) to organise themselves.

    I wonder if anybody will be brazen enough to review a pub without leaving home?
