    3 micropubs from a list of 12 seems a little weighted, even if RealAleRay is on a mission in that direction... I suppose they are at least run by ale enthusiasts.

    Just 5 ticks for me, unless I got the Stanford on an unfortunate stop in Lowestoft, but I don't think so. When returning to the station we were asked where we wanted tickets to, and the communal answer was 'anywhere'... though we may have played crazy golf here?

    None, I'm ashamed to say. Not even the George & Dragon, Hudswell.

    Only three Just Beer,Hope and Nags Head,the latter I hope doesnt win so that this fine pub is not overrun by pub tickers who can infest these boozers once they have become CAMRA award winning pub .(viz The Baum)

    Two for me, Nags Head and The Wonston Arms, both very good, but in different ways.

    8 for me AND I've been outside the Druid and Office when they were not open. I believe I've reviewed all 8.

    Nags Head Reading
    Sandford Lowestoft
    Just Beer Newark
    Wigan Central
    Flower Pot Maidstone
    Hope Carshalton
    Anchored Worthing
    Weavers Kidderminster

    Eagle eyed readers may notice that apart from Carshalton all the places host a JDW!

    My two favourites of these would be the Nags Head and Wigan Central which I've been to 3 times now. I can't stay away from railway themed pubs!

    Just a Chesney for me-

    Weavers Real Ale House, Kidderminster.
    Also, it's the only pub where I've received Pensioners Concessionary Discount on beer!

    Four,
    Nags Head,
    Just Beer,
    Weavers,
    Wigan Central.


    Not sadly not the George & Dragon as I need Mrs OB to drive me there and back.

    Tell us, now, how and when
    We may find the bravest men?
