    The thing with mild in London is that it's hard to find a pub where you can find it on regularly.The Wenlock is the only pub in Central London and the Owl and Pussy cat locally are the only ones I know.

    There's always a mild on at the Kelham Island Tavern, usually Half Moon Dark Masquerade 3.6%, but I can't think of another pub where I regularly come across a mild. Tapped brewery (at the Sheffield Tap) did a light mild last year, but I haven't seen it since.

    The Nags Head always has a changing mild on.

    The Southampton seems to have a regular mild; two on Monday with I think no milds on at the Wenlock on Saturday, but I could have been wrong.

    Perhaps the opposite was the case when the article was written?

    Really, not my experience at all - perhaps 5% of pubs have any form of mild (cask, keg, bottled or canned) in recent years, although maybe still closer to 10% in the West Midlands?

    Well there is, but obviously I didn't mean the average high St pub, but dedicated alehouses ,micros and craft bars mild is not unusual at all in my experience. Of course if we're talking overall percentages Mild is not fit to lace Doom Bars boots thankfully.

    To be fair I didn't clock the date, I would say probably more now than then with craft brewers seeing retro as cool.

    These are all the MILDs I drank last year:

    New Barrack Tavern Sheffield Rudgate Ruby Mild 4.4 1.00
    Sheffield Tap Sheffield Tapped Golden Mild 3.6 1.00
    Sheffield Tap Sheffield Tapped Golden Mild 3.6 0.50
    Harry's Bar Wakefield Great Newsome Holderness Dark Mild 4.3 1.00
    Kelham Island Tavern Sheffield Half Moon Dark Masquerade Mild 3.6 1.00
    Smithfield Derby Trinity Lichfield Mild 6.1 0.50
    Nags Head Westminster McMullens AK Mild 3.7 0.50
    Railway Stockport Dunham Massey Dark Mild 3.8 0.50
    Ackhorne York Rudgate Ruby Mild 4.4 1.00
    Bricklayers Arms Luton Nethergate Melford Mild 3.7 1.50
    Bricklayers Arms Luton Leighton Buzzard Vimy Bomber Mild 4.3 0.50
    New Barrack Tavern Sheffield Rudgate Ruby Mild 4.4 1.00
    Kelham Island Tavern Sheffield Half Moon Dark Masquerade Mild 3.6 2.50
    Kelham Island Tavern Sheffield Half Moon Dark Masquerade Mild 3.6 0.50
    Fat Cat Sheffield Town House Meg's Mild 3.9 0.50
    Kelham Island Tavern Sheffield Buxton Mild 6.0 0.50

    That's 14 pints of mild over 16 pub visits. That compares with 626 pints drunk in pubs over 501 pub visits in 2021. It's hard to say whether there have been occasions when a mild has been on but I haven't drunk it - sometimes I'm just not in the mood for a mild. But 14 out of 626 is only just over 2%.

    (Sorry the table's hard to read - I don't know how to bring forward spreadsheet formatting to this forum.)

    I've just done a quick search for the word 'mild' in my 2021 pub reviews (whether imbibed or just noted it as being available) and came up with 3.8% in total.

    However, nearly ¾ of those instances were in the West Midlands, at a surprising 26% of pubs visited.
