    Well, I've managed a couple:
    Kilder, Birmingham
    Sunflower, Belfast

    And the rest aren't a complete write-off, with some of the more promising being:
    The Kenton, Homerton
    Dylans - Kings Arms, St Albans
    Junkyard, Nottingham
    Con Club, Altrincham
    Ravensgate Arms, Ramsgate
    The Thatch, Thame
    Roseleaf, Leith
    Kiwi's Brew Bar, Portrush
    Northern Lights, Belfast

    The Thatch, Thame for me, it wasn't actually the pub I was thinking of in Thame after doing all the pubs in the town one evening on the way to Southend in 2015.
