    I'll kick the month off by nominating The Walpole Arms , an interesting, if somewhat foodie pub, in a part of the country not well represented on this (or any) site.

    A trip to Burton provided my POTM, although its had some negative comments I was particularly taken with the Coopers Tavern

    Tell us, now, how and when

    The Chequers,an unexpected gem in Stevenage and a pub which proved that it is sometime worth going in a Greene King pub when on the look out for decent ale.

    Is this the first Greene King house to be nominated twice as a 'Pub of the Month'?

    Please don't throw things at me, but the most unexpectedly good beer / pub combination this week was the Greene King 1799 Porter at the newly refurbished Chequers in the Old Town part of Stevenage.

    Post Office Vaults in Birmingham. Enjoyed 4 new cask ales, and a couple of very good Clown Shoes bottles from USA.
    Alcohol doesn't solve problems .... but then again, neither does milk.

    To be honest ,your review was the main reason for popping in the Chequers so thanks for that.

    Finally managed to get out to the Garden Gate in Hunslet, a fantastic heritage survivor.

    Yet to visit The Bedford ,but it has a pretty good name for decent beer.
