    It's as good an idea as I've seen.
    If you include the North Anglesey Coast it means that Liverpool is in the South as well as the Southern half of Manchester!! Maybe the Geordies are on to something.

    That's a good idea for the definition of "The North" when considering the (next) PuG craw after Derby
    Now we just need a simple dividing line between the South and the Midlands

    I think extreme views like that are a significant threat to our future national security and to our economic security.

    It's actually in the Midlands.
    Newark and Nottingham are in the East Midlands which is not anything like the West Midlands,they are two separate areas of the country,

    Ask anyone if walking round Nottingham which part of the country you live in they will say the East Midlands.
    We are all equal,but some are more equal than others

    Down this way, there are those who think that the North starts at the Thames...

    Southampton Arms ,Gospel Oak.

    Four of us visited to drown our sorrows on Saturday evening and had a series of hazy,shoddy pints from some well respected brewers.Really hope this was a one off although I do remember a visit a few years ago with a similar outcome.

    No I think you are right about this pub.I visit often to get new beers but have also found the beer quality suspect.And hazy beers are the norm on my visits.

    Tried the new Resting Hare pub near Euston.Very impressed but I had a pint(I usually only drink halves) of Moor -So Hop.Sharp,acidic,harsh hopped,thin and as it was unfined completely murky.This is a well rated brewer but I just don't like most of their beer.So Hop-so disappointing.
