    For want of a more appropriate thread, I just went through the very long list of pubs on IOW and was very frustrated that after clicking on a pub's link, then 'back', the view of the list did not return to the place I had been at, necessitating lots of scrolling down to find the same area in the list again. Most annoying as there were so many pages of listed pubs.

    Thanks, btw, to Pangolin and ETA for recommendations on the other thread. I was actually very surprised to find another 15 from these good pages (cross-referenced with whatpub) to send to the visitor.

    More Yorkshire news: there's a nasty rumour that Mr Humphrey has been sectioned.
    I've had my pants pulled down over the price of a pint on many occasions but this is taking things too far!

    Not sure whether anybody previously shared a strong contender for the Humph story of the year: Boss of pub chain Sam Smith, 74, is spotted staring at a mobile in a Wetherspoon's - despite BANNING phones in his pubs to 'encourage genial conversation'

    I run a mile from genial conversation, and glue myself to my phone, even in a micro. Never go to a Humph-ery.

    Drink drink, whoever you may be,
    we are the drunk and disorderly,
    and we’ll drink more beer wherever we may be,
    and we’ll meet you all in a pub said he.

    Dunno if it's Humphrey or not, but it's certainly The Edwin Waugh (JD Wetherspoon)
