    Flute & Firkin Excellent micro, and the Poynton beers made it a really difficult one to leave. Definitely one for a revisit

    I wouldn't claim to have visited many micropubs, but The Beer Engine, Skipton is my favourite to date. The beer has always been top notch and the usual friendly welcome was particularly warm, on our last visit, when we called just before Christmas.

    A quiet month, avoiding the crowds. A trip to Redcar saw a visit to the pleasant Gypsy Rover on the seafront and some excellent Vanilla Porter.

    Are you getting your micros mixed? It's Rita's Pantry on the seafront, the Gypsy Rover is near the station.

    The bad news about my December pub is that it's right on the Western edge of Stourbridge but the good news is that it's only a short distance from the Batham's pub. It's a Black Country Ales outlet called the Queens Head so has been nicely refurbished and has a good choice of guest ales. It's one I will definitely be returning to.

    The Mount Pleasant was a contender but ruled out because of the limited opening hours.
