    Good luck to him - I'm just glad the Turtle Bay is in BA2 - I wonder if he would have counted it

    All the comments were pretty scathing of the so called challenge.

    Al would have done that crawl in less than 3 days and still have time for a Spoons breakfast and a few in BA2 on the way back for his bus.

    "Mr White used search engines, maps and the old fashioned trick of asking around and realised there were 55 pubs in BA1." Should have just visited Pubs Galore!

    A bit concerning that Bladud's Head in Larkhall doesn't come up on a Google search until the 6th page - WhatPub is on page 3. And Pub Utopia, FFS, on page 2! Where are we going wrong? (Looking on the bright side, it doesn't come up at all on BITE, as far as I can see.)

    Might help if we can get a review?
