    I haven't been in for a while, but the layout of the Rawson Spring in Sheffield is pretty good and different in that there are smaller rooms within the big room if you know what I mean. They are part of it with no doors, but you can get a more pubby feel to it.

    They seem to keep the beers well there too as it often gets a mention by those doing Sheffield crawl, and personally I prefer it to the Bankers Draft at the other end of the crawl.

    Thanks for pointing it out
    The rear entrance signage is in Welsh, main entrance signage is in English

    I suspect most would use main entrance on Gloddaeth Street

    I took picture of rear entrance as well, Y Paladiwm it is called there

    Thanks Farway!

    Iím going to pick a couple by category if I may.

    For beer range and quality thereís another vote for the Babington Arms in Derby and Iím also going for the Metropolitan Bar near Baker St Station in London.

    For decorative interiors itís two ex banks, the Crosse Keyes in London and the Counting House in Glasgow

    In the best conversion category Iím going for one that I visited years ago The Picture House in Colwyn Bay converted from an old cinema and a more recent one the Samuel Peto in Folkestone which used to be an old church and where you can still see the organ above the bar.

    For me it would be the Richard Oastler in Brighouse converted from an old chapel. Not one of their biggest outlets, perhaps one of their smallest? Plus it would probably win their award for the smelliest toilets amid some fierce compitition.

    Still my favourite though.

    There's no missing word, I meant it as a plural. Ungrammatical I know, but I used the aberrant apostrophe in this case as a reference to greengrocers' habitual way of labelling their produce - e.g. apple's, pear's, etc. These people are the bane of Sir Mustapha's life, but luckily he has an army of stalwart quangophiles on his staff at the Apostrophe Police to patrol the markets.

    The Bluecoat in Rotherham is superb, and there are nice examples in London. And Andy Ven is right about the Square Peg in Birmingham - very poor, as is 'wetherspoons' next to Birmingham library

    I agree with you, easily worst JDW in Brum and almost impossible to get served. Go to nearby Solomon Culter.

    I would certainly agree with Danny on this one. Although I've not been up to Rotherham for a couple of years, I would go to this 'spoons when up in that area again. On a more local (to me) choice it would be the Old Gaol House in Winchester. The beer always seems to be good and the staff knowledgeable.

    My irony wasted once again,

    I wont even mention the apostrophe catastrophe in the title of this thread least my OCD show itself again.

    Irony, Irony they've all missed my irony!
    There are many diseases,
    that strike people's kneeses,
    Covid19! is one by name
    It comes from the East
    Packed in bladders of yeast
    So the Chinese must take half the blame.

    Apologies to Spike Milligan
