    Some strong contenders this month,from York I really enjoyed The Rook and Gaskill and The Waggon and Horsesalong with The Woolpack
    From Winchester I was very impressed with The Fulflood Arms. Yesterday in London The Jerusalum Tavern really deliverd and later on Yesterday in Surbiton, I am always liking The Antelope but the pub that stole that particular day and the month a couple of enjoyable drinks in a top notch real boozer.

    I'm struggling a bit this month but will go for this one. It's a suburban Holden's pub that is rather off the beaten track and didn't do any guest ales on my visit but it's a great example of an old school regional brewery tied house. Even if it had a guest I would probably have gone for the brewery beer anyway.
    If you don't like any of the four Holden's beers you won't like it but I would happily return.

    St Aldates Tavern
    Oxford has never been the easiest of places to find a great real ale ,but with the sad passing of Far From the Madding Crowd ,this pub came up trumps and delivered a great session .

    Just beat off the Old Joint Stock ,which will get another (longer) visit next time I'm in Brum and feeling flush.

    In a thin month for pub going,this pub:Lord Raglan was a welcome port of call on a rare evening excursion.A regular outlet for Goacher's,though this time I had a hopbomb from Westerham.This always was a well thought-of pub, though I never used it as often as I would have wished.

    A trip to Hull earlier in the month provided some fine pubs but the best I found was The Minerva.

    The trip to York provided some fine candidates, but in the end it came down to a choice of two. The Woolpack Inn versus The Rook & Gaskill. Barely a cigarette paper between them, I'm plumping for the Woolpack, because as Moby noted, its ordinariness is a major part of its appeal. The sort of place you could settle down for a session and imagine as a local.

    Good word, and spot on.

    Thoroughly enjoyed the St Aldates Tavern as mentioned by Mr. Fastard above.

    POTM Early Doors in Daventry. The first place for a reliable pint in town.
