    The Victoria, Durham.. Despite living on the County border with Durham in Stockton and passing through the town many times I'd never visited. On a great crawl taking in several worthy contenders I stopped off at the time warp that is the Victoria. Fyne Jarl was on but as this is so commonplace... I went for a pint of their Avalanche instead. Cocooned in the 1930s or so backroom I overheard conversations about train stops on the east coast main line and preston to Blackpool lines... Great memorable stuff.

    Default Please give BF some medication before he reads this!

    The pub that really sticks in the mind from last month is the John Bunyan, out in the country at Coleman Green, south of Wheathampstead - a McMullen pub too!

    More helpfully to most people, I'll give the Sheaf View in the Heeley area of Sheffield a very honourable mention.

    I think I've been there. The Wicked Lady at Nomansland Common nearby used to be a beer festival pub with a room at the back being converted to what is nowadays a micropub style cold room but with a counter and room for probably a couple of dozen casks. The John's Bunions was very much a side issue and I don't remember anything about it.
    McMullen got rid of a load of smaller rural pubs in the 1990s, including the Moletrap and the Carpenters Arms. A travesty!
