    I agree with Quinno and Will on this one. Seven years, seven, of bad reviews.
    Drink drink, whoever you may be,
    we are the drunk and disorderly,
    and we’ll drink more beer wherever we may be,
    and we’ll meet you all in a pub said he.

    For a bizarre pretentious atmosphere, non existent service and extortionate fizz beer I would go with 75 Church Street.

    Didn't like this one much.

    Fortunately most of my 2018 trips were to new or long ago visited places where I used this wonderful resource to target the best pubs in town..

    Consequently I didn't have the misfortune to come across some real dogs dinners in 2018 and Shillingford Bridge Hotel was probably the worst it got for me..

    Doncaster's Angel & Royal gets my vote. It's a truly dreadful place but there were quite a few in and I can only surmise it was because of the cheap prices. It was formerly a JDW Lloyds and a Yates but it can't have been worse then can it?

    Commiserations to you all, but your nominations have zero chance of winning this award in the face of this one: The Old Rock. When I tell you that Alan Winfield's younger brother was unable to finish a half of John Smiths Smooth Crap, you'll get some idea of how dire this pub was.

    The Hind & Hart in Colindale, NW9. Easily the worst of the year, and probably in my Top 5 worst of all-time.

    Three places have scored 2 this year.

    First, we have The Cathedral Hotel - "if I went to hell and was sentenced to pub purgatory, this place could be the blueprint."

    Next up - Travellers Rest - "You’d have to be either a completist or a barrel-scraper to do this one (some may argue I am both)"

    And finally - The Crown Tavern - "It’s not often I feel genuinely unwelcome in a pub, but this place managed it"

    Tough call!!
