    Default Pub facilities and data geekery

    I've split some posts out from the bar billiards thread as it seemed like a nice idea to not let that one drift off topic completely.

    We started discussing the pub facilities stuff in a more general way from this point....

    Do you mean a tool for checking reviews for a mention of 'bar billiards' like I did for real ales? Something like http://www.pubsgalore.co.uk/tools/ch...?pagefacid=107 (there are only 20 that need checking)

    That's the one!

    All done

    Might be worth rolling out some others? I know I'm bang up-to-date reviews-wise (until tomorrow!) and am happy to do some clicking-through on categories...

    Does a current check of facilities get undertaken as I've revisited bar billiards pubs to find they've been removed...

    Also the potential to search for Cavery and add them as a facility?

    Feel free to stab at any of these, if there are others you'd prefer then I can try to set them up.

    Not as such, the hope is that in those situations you'd just switch it to no. This tool only checks pubs where it is currently set to unknown.

    Also the potential to search for Cavery and add them as a facility?
    It is certainly something I've considered, may get added at some point in the future.

    I had gone down in numbers from 107 and found the other searches. The idea of 3900+ pool table references fills me with dread...

    On a side note I got 2016 GBG Sat Nav POI file in varying formats do you want to make a http://www.pubsgalore.co.uk/pub-feat...eek-free-pint/ style link for those to assist none Camra members to pubs in the guide or is that some sort of copyright issue?

    Is there a danger of having just too many options?

    Potential copyright issue I'm afraid. We contacted CAMRA a few years ago to ask permission to highlight pubs that were GBG listed, sadly they never got back to us.

    Definitely. I do keep wondering how best to keep things useful whilst not overwhelming.

    I know for a fact that I and other people try and mention in the review that it is GBG 201n listed. Surely that's good enough? Like the CAMRA discount I sometimes or even often forget.

    Why worry about gbg pubs .The latest Cask report published this week found only a small percentage of drinkers care if its GBG listed and even fewer care about Cask Marque.

    To me Cask Marque has always meant ,approach with caution and more often than not expect cold unexciting beer.
