    Is anyone limited by needing to leave particularly early? I was thinking of getting a train back at about 8ish, which would allow a slightly slower pace.
    I was referring to thread 98 where Sheff Hatter said 30 mins/pub would end at midnight, but that was with a Full Winfield.

    Maybe a compromise with 25 mins/pub would add just over an hour (or an hour & a half with the wild cards.).
    The 2nd half of the crawl usually ends up with people doing their own crawl, falling over kerb stones and leaving at different times.

    Revised to 25mins/pub (Works out approx 30 mins including walking times)


    'spoons
    Seven Stars 9-11.57 (1 min from Shudehill tram stop)
    3 mins
    Hare & Hounds 11.00 (extra wild card for pre nooners non-spooners) Grade II heritage & Holt's Bitter.
    3 mins
    Pilcrow 12.00
    6 mins
    Angel 12.45
    3 mins
    Marble Arch 13.15
    6 mins
    Fringe 13.45 (followed by wildcard Smithfield Market Tavern, open 14.00)
    2 mins
    Crown & Kettle 14.10 (followed by wildcard Castle Hotel)
    4 mins
    Flok 14.40
    2 mins
    Soup Kitchen 15.05
    8 mins
    Beermoth 15.40
    4mins
    City Arms 16.10
    6 mins
    Rising Sun 16.40
    4 mins
    Gas Lamp 17.10
    17 seconds!
    Brink 17.35
    12 mins
    Britons Protect. 18.10
    2 mins
    Peveril of Peak 18.35

    + 2 wild cards 19.25

    Reading back through this long thread it seems the following expressed some interest in coming along.Are there others who are going to pitch up ?

    ROBCamra
    sheffield hatter
    Dave M
    Cider Drinker
    oldboots
    Gann
    Bucking Fastard
    Real Ale Ray
    Mrs Ale
    AlanH
    Mobyduck
    Aqualung (towards end of crawl)
    Gillhalfpint and Ray (possible depending on timings)

    I'm sure I must have missed a few out.

    I've discovered that there is a whole raft of pubs (mostly Holts) in between Bury and the centre of Manchester that could keep be going all day along with the Bury options. My plan is to go to the Bury ones (around 5 or 6 I think), come down to Victoria and visit the Holt's brewery tap then head for St Peter's Square for late afternoon and include the Ape & Apple (Holts) by which time I'll probably be past caring how much I'm being ripped off! I'm staying in Stockport so I assume I won't have to get to Piccadilly too early.

    Have you seen the prices they charge?

    For those with a CAMRA card the Fringe and Gaslamp on the crawl both do CAMRA discount.

    For anyone going off-piste near Flok then Pie & Ale also do a discount, but boy will you need it. Not for the faint pocketed these days.

    When meeting at the Pilcrow which is in Sadler's Yard those coming from Victoria should note that there are roadworks on Hanover Street,
    but pedestrians can still get through.

    Those coming from the Seven Stars should go along Federation Street and then left.
