    More rubbish from The Independent; no mention of Sheffield or Black Country pubs, although they do ask for suggestions.

    Certainly the 2 in Edinburgh, although decent pubs, are by no means the best for beer quality. On wonders which otehr pubs they compared, and how recent their data are.

    In my opinion the Cafe Royal in Edinburgh sells crap beer and they charge an arm & a leg for it as well.

    If I had to choose 2 in Edinburgh I think I'd go for Kays Bar & The Guildford, or maybe Blue Blazer, or Bow Bar or Halfway House, or Cloisters or.....

    Anyway, not those two.

    Looks like the usual recycling of old favourites which is fairly typical of Protzy, although a couple weren't even in his Top 500 book a few years back.

    The Cornubia wouldn't even make my "top two pubs within a hundred yard radius of The Cornubia".

    Although Whitelocks is unmissable when visiting Leeds, for its fabulous interior, the beer quality is rather variable, with a tendency to be served too cold. There are at least half a dozen better places, based purely on beer.
