    Yes that's a fair point, I didn't vote for Southampton despite there being some really good pubs there, I just think they're too spread out, in a years time there night be two or three new venues plugging the gaps.

    And the opening of new micropubs in any town could transform a venue into a possibility but there is the worry of turning up mob handed to a smaller micropub.
    This time I actually preferred Southampton to Portsmouth for the micropubs but as you say the centre isn't that great. In recent years I don't think I've been anywhere in Southampton other than the JDWs.

    Yes, we don't want sensible ideas when we're trying to generate a little fun.

    How could we decide a pub crawl venue without arguments about geography?

    Most of the discussion was centred around the location of the place beginning with "P" which was starting to drive me up the poll.

    I feel sorry for Lewes which is doing about as well as the UK in the Eurovision Song Contest.
    Perhaps next year they'll burn a Pubs Galore effigy on Bonfire Night!

    Way back in the 1980s I actually went to the Lewes bonfire night. It was manic and hopeless, you couldn't get near the Cliffe which is the main event but the processions of flaming torches along with the effigies of Thatcher, Reagan, Kinnock and of course the Pope were fun. I wouldn't go again but the town doesn't deserve to end up with Nil Points (in a European accent).

    Loving the suggestions, we are only ruling out Lewes, Worthing and London as we have been to Brighton and London recently. We would be up for those in a future PGC. Xx

    You could use a similar argument to rule out Bath which is very close to Bristol. My argument against it would be that it's a horrible expensive tourist trap.
    I don't think I need to say anything about London!

    Agree... Come on someone who hasn't already voted, please give Lewes a sympathy vote or it will forever become the town that got Nil Points (in a European accent) in a PuG vote..

    Done the decent by Lewes! I like the town,but don't think I've had a drink there since 1979. Done more in the outlying villages.

    Surely the point was that we did Brighton in Spring 2018, thus potentially ruling out Lewes and Worthing as being too repetitive because too soon, whereas Bristol was in 2014, if memory serves, so that Bath would only be slightly repetitive because not so soon.
