    Default PuG Summer meet - St Albans: Friday 17th July 2015

    As the date and venue for this summer's Pubs Galore meet up have been agreed, should we start looking at some pubs? I did a little tour there one afternoon before a Luton Town match earlier this year:

    The Garibaldi
    The White Lion
    The Goat
    The Beehive
    (these were pubs that hadn't had a recent review on the site)

    In the same area, there are also
    White Hart Tap
    Hare & Hounds
    (which I didn't have time for, and they'd recently been reviewed)

    I would suggest that Ye Olde Fighting Cocks would probably be one we ought to include. There's a nice walk through the park to The Six Bells and The Rose & Crown. Going back towards town there's Lower Red Lion. Someone recommended The Foragers at Verulam Arms to me, and there's Farriers Arms with historical Camra connections. I don't know the town centre pubs, apart from The Mermaid, which I would suggest might make a good final pub, as it's not very far from the station.

    Any suggestions?

    That's a very good list and also suggests a sensible crawl route.I would only suggest adding Blacksmiths Arms just before The Mermaid at the end of the crawl as folk head back towards the station.

    ...as long as it's not too late, as John's review suggests that it gets pretty loud here on a Friday night.

    The Wetherspoons seems to be above average, going by John's review, and would seem to suggest itself as a start point for the crawl.

    Steve's review of The Victoria gives an inkling of why he's giving this crawl a miss! (To be fair, it might have improved in the intervening four years.)

    Does anyone know anything about Dylans Kings Arms? Seems to be doing craft beers, but is it keg only?

    They have three handpulls according to WhatPub with Dark Star APA and Oakham JHB plus a rotating guest (although that photo at the top of their Twitter page shows APA, Hophead and Tribute as the three ales). Real cider also available. Run by the same people that run The Boot, which also sounds like it might be worth a look.
