    Default Something of use from the other side

    When planning a pub trip somewhere I am not familiar with, (I am going to Salisbury today) I normally use PUG and Whatpub to gather the necessary info and then transfer it to a map, one feature on Bite I still use is the nearby pubs link, once you have your pubs down on a map I find this feature very useful to get an easy idea of distance between pubs, especially if there are a couple out on a limb somewhere, I find it very easy to use,does anyone else find this useful and is there any scope for something similar on PUG?

    Agreed, I always found that very useful and it would be nice if we could have something similar here.

    I just use the pub map to see the local pubs that are also listed at the bottom of the pub's main page.

    Thank you, just got back 20 mins ago, did 9 pubs and out of those probably wouldn't bother with four of them next time, but all in all a good day and not a bad beer quality -wise anywhere ( although a couple were on the bland side) regardless of the pub.

    Timing - Moby and Maldenman both did the Salisbury pubs while I was out of the country. Quinno was in my local as well.

    Nothing personal.
