    "But what about the notion that some traditional pubs are best avoided or magnets for anti-social behaviour?"

    "I think the idea that these kinds of pubs are places to avoid is completely wrong..."

    Who the heck has been suggesting that traditional pubs in Leeds are a problem?
    And what the blazes is a 'Loiner'?

    talking of blazes (sorry Trainman, probably not what you meant)...

    Just realised that this pubdoesn't have an entry here so I've added it - hope it's not too late.

    Maybe its first review will mention the large smoking area...

    That's a shame-it was a cracking pub. I'd been once about 30 years ago, when we were packing up my mother's aunt's house nearby.Let's hope it can be rebuilt sympathetically.

    Goose Cooked?

    InBev swallows up US craft brewery behind the Goose Island beers. I've had their IPA and Honkers Ale, both of which were excellent.
    And you can really taste the hops!

    Who's this "best brewers in the world" they mention I can only see Goose Island (not bad) and AB InBev famous purveyors of pi55?

    Tell us, now, how and when
    We may find the bravest men?
