To stop the other threads getting over-long and unwieldy here's a list of dates for discussion and a list of the GBG2019 pubs that are more central.

October 4, 11, 18, & 25
November 1, 8, 15, 22 & 29.

Admiral Benbow
The Coach & Horses
The Nag's Head
Montgomery's Tower (Lloyds No 1)
The Salopian Bar

Further out are The Dolphin & The Woodman and in the other direction Cross Foxes, The Prince Of Wales and The Abbey but all might be considered too far out?
