    The Plough in Tyttenhanger, Herts. Still surprised mine was only the second-ever review on the site.

    The Lyric Impressive for the area.

    I've never been to it, Tyttenhanger is off the beaten track. The Barley Mow there was one of the very first "beer festival" type pubs. I think there's a piece on it somewhere on Boak & Bailey.

    Despite having visited several great pubs since day 1 of the month it still has to be the Coopers Tavern in Burton. I'd only really heard of this place from references on the Dark Side. I've got it earmarked for a return, especially as the return journey involves Derby Station!

    Agreed to a point. It's only a couple of minutes off the A414 but unless you have a "des" it limits what you can enjoy and the bus timetable is too infrequent for those looking to stay longer, which does make it off the beaten track, access-wise. Funnily enough, I only stumbled across The Plough after reading Steve of N21's review of The Barley Mow...

    The Moorbrook Tavern, Preston. A fairly late discovery for me after moving here in June, glad I found it. Excellent cask, keg, music selection, decor, vibe and outdoor wood-fired pizzas!

    The Dog Hangs Well at Ludlow.A Parlour Pub and the antithesis of most pubs I've been to. Very limited hours, one beer at a time (and a Cider), but it works for me.

    The Mansion House

    Oakham Ales in great shape with a daily happy hour (sic) from 5pm -7pm with all ales £3 and then a permanent 10% off with a CAMRA card,meant quite a few Citra's flew down at £2.70.

    Now that's real value.
