    Mrs Ale here - having been to Grantham quite a few years ago, it's not somewhere I'd rush back to, the Spoons was about the best pub there - maybe it's changed since then! Thought Northampton was excellent with a good variety of decent pubs, didn't find it that expensive though...

    Just a reminder that Kidderminster and Lincoln were also in the 2018 poll and Ludlow has been mooted previously, all good drinking towns in my experience although not all easy to reach.

    Tell us, now, how and when
    We may find the bravest men?
    A sure test, an easy test:
    Those that drink beer are the best

    Grantham has only four GBG2019 pubs but I can't comment on the quality or on any others there may be, the town apart the the obvious mark of Cain does have good rail connections. I notice Louth has 6 GBG2019 pubs but it's murder to get to and probably not in the Midlands anyway

    A further idea, if transport allowed, might be a combination of Leamington Spa, Warwick and Kenilworth, just brain storming ideas here not thought through recommendations.

    Also Shrewsbury has been listed before. Larger and easier to get to than Ludlow (but Ludlow fine for me!)

    Stafford was also suggested for Summer 2019 (but relegated to the Midlands)

    Gosh, I had to search for Louth. I thought the only place more difficult than Lincoln to get to was Skegness, but at least that has a station! Louth is 5 hours 14 minutes walk from the nearest!

    I was in Louth (briefly) on Friday - it’s certainly an interesting place with a number of decent pubs, but an absolute pig to get to on what’s left of public transport in East Lincolnshire. Both Lincoln and Skegness are a piece of cake in comparison!

    Louth like other Lincolnshire towns is a nightmare to get to. I think I got a bus from Grimsby.

    IMO Warwick and Leamington are not that great. Is Kenilworth near Rugby? I've never been there.
