    Appreciate the time and effort it takes with sorting pictures and adding reviews/text etc. I just look forward to reading the new blogs and would like more to read. If I could muster the effort to blog my visits I would.

    Keep up the good work.

    Really enjoyed reading your Oxford crawl, Al - a city I hold dear to my heart. I especially love the pictures, which is bittersweet, seeing as many of those pubs are no longer with us...

    My pleasure Al; it really was great to read. I'd certainly look forward to any more Oxford-related crawls you'd care to post. I've done the lot (considering my location), but to see your notes/photos would be awesome.

    I'm presuming it's you in the photograph outside the Morrells brewery gates? I'm guessing you've maintained the same physique 25-plus years later (perhaps without the denim jacket)...?

    Yes you are spot on,it was me in the denim jacket and i dont wear them anymore,i have also stayed roughly the same weight since my early 20s,my wife is the other person posing for a photo outside the Morrells brewery gates.

    Another great pub blog from Al, from Salford in 1988. I was crawling around the same pubs about the same time so have visited most, but just a bit vague about one or two.
    Salford has suffered a huge destruction of pubs since, with only 5 of the 21 pubs still open. Only 3 with Real Ale, Eagle and the Union Tavern with Holts beers and the reopened "New" Oxford, now a Free House with many beers.
