    Too early for any rail company offers yet, while the government is still forcing them to do everything they can to deter people actually travelling, however Travelodge have just unleashed "a million rooms" from £29. This runs through to 31 Dec so there might even be some pubs open by then!

    I have just nabbed a weekend in York for £60 (not primarily beer-related).
    On leaving the bar, I felt a strong blow to the back of my head. Turning round, I discovered it was the pavement

    Does anyone know whether the lack of train schedules/options, even in next 3 weeks (rather than 90-day searches) is due to lack of availability for Covid spacing, or rail companies not having websites properly working?
    I want to get to Nottingham/Beeston 14-16 Aug (TL accom offer!) but the return, especially, is proving very difficult... thanks, j

    ps. there do also seem to be very few direct trains, and then very slow, but no options to book the quicker change lines via Grantham...

    Drink drink, whoever you may be,
    we are the drunk and disorderly,
    and we’ll drink more beer wherever we may be,
    and we’ll meet you all in a pub said he.

    Thanks ob, I only use that to check times, not make bookings, but it had options that southern or thetrainline did not. Back via Newark for £21 each, gambling on getting 3 via megatrain for outbound, heaven knows when those will become available... cheers, j
