    There was also a discussion on Radio 4's Today programme.
    I'll make 7 too (thanks to the Preston trip!). Not much hope of any of the others in the near future.
    On leaving the bar, I felt a strong blow to the back of my head. Turning round, I discovered it was the pavement

    5 for me, incl the Bridge at Topsham, though I don't remember the room that features in the photo here... how very careless of me!

    Four for me:

    Black Horse Hotel (thanks to Preston)

    The Harrow Inn (wonderful pub, but I'm not the only one to have encountered the landlady)

    The Prince Alfred (a 20-minute walk and a pub where I've spent more time than any other)

    Which Red Lion in Westminster?

    No, not that one - this one.

    Far enough, 'inn' indicates accommodation which very few of that title offer now.

    Number of pubs in England and Wales falls to record low

    https://www.theguardian.com/business...-soaring-costs

    If I knew how I'd check if the number of pubs listed here (and What?ub) reflect that.

    There are 49,097 pubs listed as open on this site, which is significantly higher than the 'below 40,000' reported in the article. Not sure what would account for such a significant discrepancy?

    Data was for E&W, would Scotland and NI be the discrepancy?
