    Of course it was a joke!
    I don't think anywhere in SW England is worth considering as the only accessible places (Taunton & Exeter) aren't that great and anywhere West of that takes too long to get to

    I am also happy with Winchester, but in the interest of fairness, and it’s always a bit of excitement to have a poll, why don’t we just put forward the six runners up to Portsmouth from the last southern poll ?, namely Winchester, Cardiff, Chelmsford, Bath, Cambridge and Salisbury..

    Sorry. Before anyone points out my obvious mistake, the six highest runners up to Portsmouth

    In the absence of any new suggestions (with the notable exception of Helston, and as Richard has pointed out, even that one wasn't new) that seems like a good idea.

    I agree there should be a poll at the very least between Cardiff & Winchester. There is a down side to Winchester in that it's in a similar area to the last Southern outing in Portsmouth.

    Winchester is good, solid, drinking territory, relatively compact and easily managed so long as you watch opening hours. Little new for me but happy to add 'expertise', and a side trip to the Wonston Arms is not impossible to organise!

    I have just returned from a Cardiff-based bash and there are certainly some good pubs there, although an awful lot of awful ones, but the best might be a bit spread out so good planning would be essential - do we have enough local knowledge? On the plus side, it does give the opportunity before/after to knock off some other Glamorgan pubs, which we are pretty weak on (one of my bugbears!).

    Bath, Cambridge and Salisbury could equally work (don't know Chelmsford well) so I would support a poll including those.

    Helston is great, of course...
    On leaving the bar, I felt a strong blow to the back of my head. Turning round, I discovered it was the pavement

    Hmm not impossible but not sure on how regular the buses are bearing in mind the Wonston doesn't open till 5 pm during the week.
