    Can definitely recommend BeerHeadZ and Crafty Crow. Plenty of others to choose from, Nottingham's a good town for pubs. Have you tried Beeston?

    Got my eye on BeerHeadZ as it is right by the station! Crafty Crow is very close to my digs so that's a good call.

    I went to Beeston years ago to visit the Spoon's. Only went in a couple there.

    If you haven't already done the Crown Inn or The Victoria Hotel, they're worth getting off the train/tram for.

    Absolutely, and with very good supporting acts from the Star and Totally Tapped, although I hear the 'crazy kiwi', who was a star at the latter, has moved on for now.

    In Nottingham itself, I still love the Vat&Fiddle and the Newshouse, then there are a gaggle around Canning Circus, Hand and Heart being a favourite but I thought the Sir John Borlase Warren had lost something since moving on from project William to Lincoln Green, I didn't warm to Overdraught (much preferring Totally Tapped of same brewery) and missed the Falcon last time, in fact I can't recall ever going there but am told otherwise. Controversially, I can't enthuse about the Organ Grinder, or most Blue Monkey pubs, even though I like a few of their beers.

    Maybe touristy but, if you haven't been, you should have a mooch around the Olde Trip, which carries good genuine guests these days, and if you want to see a narrowboat inside a pub, cross the entrance bridge into the Canalhouse, where you'll find another strong Castle Rock line-up.

    I wouldn't bother with Barrel Drop or Room with Brew but, if you venture north on a bus, try Lincolnshire Poacher...

    Since I started writing things down in a notebook, I no longer suffer from this disease. Let me rephrase that: I'm usually fairly sure that I've written everything down...

    That pretty much sums up my impression of these Blue Monkey pubs. Perhaps I'm just annoyed at them using a chimpanzee on all their pump clips but calling the brewery Blue Monkey. Bound to get up the nose of any self-respecting pedant.

    Indeed. But if you are like me, you then spend considerable time trying to decode and make sense of the random beer-stained scrawl!
    On leaving the bar, I felt a strong blow to the back of my head. Turning round, I discovered it was the pavement
