    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.

    I had a B&B overnight stay there in June 1986.It was a lot better than the tatty place in York where the Landlord was England's answer to Rab C Nesbitt.

    Despite picking up six new pubs on the Sheffield meet-up, I'm looking to Newcastle for my POTM. The Cumberland Arms had been on my 'to do' list for ages and it didn't disappoint. Rather different from how I imagined it, but the two beers I tried were superb. I could quite happily have settled down for a major session, however, the drive back to Yorkshire beckoned.

    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.
