    A difficult decision this month, found two cracking pubs in Southsea last Sunday, The Lawrence Arms and The Phoenix ( reviews to follow shortly), But I'm going with The Craven Arms as POTM, a proper pub in every sense of the word.

    shame about the location but as mentioned in a review it maybe saves it from property developers

    A quiet month with POTM going to The Swan at Fradley Junction.

    Way better than on previous visits and therefore way better than expected. It even provided a BOTW.

    I'm going for this micropub. The owner is from NE England and knows the Rat Race in Hartlepool well. We had a right laugh comparing notes on the eccentricities of its owner. It's also a good micropub.

    Despite a month filled with visits to noted pubs including Belfast's Crown Liquor Saloon and Duke & York, as well as The Dove and The Prospect of Whitby in London, the real goodness only came at the end of the month with a mini-crawl in the Wimbledon area and the cosy oddness of The Trafalgar was only edged out by the beer quality, welcome and ambience at the nearby Sultan.

    Oaka @ The Mansion House.

    Probably too modern and not pubby enough for many,but if your a fan of Oakham and enjoy quality conditioning at more than reasonable pricing this place is well worth a visit.The thai bar snacks aren't too shabby either.

    Default The Swan, Halesowen

    A clear winner this month: the Swan at Halesowen (a Black Country Ales house).

    After much indecision, and having taken the view that a pub visited late in October could have been visited in November, my pub of the month is The Black Horse , a welcoming and not overly foodie house in a prosperous area of West Sussex.

    The Crown Inn POTM

    But this was a very close second Sun Inn - two excellent pubs
