    10/10 for me though

I hope to rectify this with a leisurely tour of Bedminster which has a rail station and a Spoons.
    Two stations in fact, Parson Street is the other end of Bedminster.

    Pride of place goes to what they describe as The Perfect Pub, Somewhere in Suffolk, because the licensee did not want the attention that would result from it being named. A little digging based on the description suggests it was in fact The Cock at Brent Eleigh.

    The remaining nine are:

    The Cresselly Arms, Cresswell Quay, Pembrokeshire

    The King’s Head (Low House), Laxfield, Suffolk

    The Tally Ho, Hatherleigh, Devon

    The Tucker’s Grave, Faulkland, Somerset

    The Olde Ship, Seahouses, Northumberland

    The Barley Mow, Kirk Ireton, Derbyshire

    The Double Locks, Alphington, Devon

    The White Horse (Nellie’s), Beverley, Yorkshire

    The Sun Inn, Stockton-on-Tees, Durham - complete with description of the famous “banked” Bass.

    I've been to just three of these 10.
    I have received delivery of this book just a few days ago , its not been a normal week and I have barely had time to look at it yet, there are however 350 pubs listed in the book, bearing in mind it was printed in 1989 many I'm sure are no longer with us, from the 350 Iv'e managed a paltry six,
    The Square and compass ,
    The Flowerpots Inn
    The White Horse
    The New Inn,now The Iron Duke
    The Bell Inn
    The Mill , Dipley,only a couple of miles from home but sadly closed for good sometime in the late 80's early 90's
    So none on Mudgies list.

    Just Nellie's for me, although with an end to the rail strike in view I might get up to Stockton soonish.

    Tell us, now, how and when

    10/10 for me as well unsurprisingly done in all guises. Although the The Good Measure visit wasn't the best as my purchase wasn't the best and soon ejected itself...
