    POTM has to be a repeat offender,The Southampton Arms, very good beer, an electric atmosphere and pork baps to die for, all a perfect remedy for a dreary wet November day.
    I almost gave it to a newcomer for me, a fantastic trad boozer just let down by an unchallenging beer offering, albeit perfectly conditioned, so an honorable mention to The Two Brewers.

    The Corner

    A great addition to the real ale scene in Huddersfield,and a new tick for me in a town where I had already visited the better known outstanding venues on many occasions.

    Agreed, but I was also taken by the 1930s interior of The Sportsman (which I had somehow failed to visit previously) too...

    a few days in London saw numerous wonderful Sam Smith interiors(but you do get bored beer wise), some nice Fullers/spoons bank conversions but in a battle of the quirky independents The Seven Stars beats The Palm Tree courtesy of a better beer selection

    I know brewery taps are two a penny in some parts, but Three Legs Brewing Co Brewery Tap is the first I've visited. Based on a proper muddy farm in that rather mystical hinterland of Rye and Hastings in East Sussex, I was alerted to the Tap by the Look at Brew Blog. On a damp November Saturday I pitched up in the yard to see a farm building conversion. Inside, a temporary bar divided the working area of the brewery from the trestles at the front where the punters sit.
    Open at weekends (see website) the Tap offers tasters of all the beers available, as well as an off-sales facility, using rather medicinal looking returnable glass flagons. It was heartening to see a steady stream of customers coming in for take home supplies, as well as enjoying a pint in situ. In a previous life, the "Legs" were involved in the wine trade, and some interesting looking bottles were available, alongside some useful cheeses.
    A bit too far for me to come and stock up regularly,unfortunately.

    I went to mostly Spoons in November so to avoid a repeat it's this one. It's one I've been to twice before on visits to the Stockport brewer. It didn't seem as good this time possibly due to Old Tom deficiency or the fact it was a busy Saturday. My 7 score is tight fisted looking back on it. It was on a list from a few years ago of pubs I'd been to before that I thought I really should go back to.
