    I've been to eight of Al's and half of Brainy's.

    My ten:

    Blake Hotel
    Ecclesall Ale Club
    Devonshire Cat
    Shakespeares Ale House
    Crow Inn
    Kelham Island Tavern
    Fat Cat
    Gardeners Rest
    Wellington
    Sheffield Tap

    ...all but two are within a 20 minute walk from my house.

    Lucky you!

    I have some lovely pubs within about a 25-minute walk from my flat but I also have some dreadful GK central London muck too. My best/nearest are essentially all lovely places to drink but generally have a poor ale choice and/or charge prices which would scare off Mark Zuckerberg:


    The Cock & Bottle
    Elephant & Castle
    The Elgin
    The Hero of Maida
    The Ladbroke Arms
    The Prince Alfred
    Uxbridge Arms
    The Warrington Hotel
    Warwick Castle
    Windsor Castle

    Ah to live in a city,now since I've moved a village three miles further south west, I no longer have any favourite pubs in sensible walking distance, pubs yes, but I'd rather not bother.The only upside is now I have a train station two minutes walk from my doorstep as opposed to previously 25 minutes at brisk pace. The two pubs I consider my locals are,
    The Waggon & Horses 3.5 miles away
    And
    The Alfred Free House 8 miles away.
    Both are small trad pubs and are going to struggle to open under any distancing rules.

    Given that they have poor ale choices and high prices can they be favourites?

    Living in London I have at about1000 pubs within an eight mile radius.Not what I would class as local though.

    Distance between St Helens and Wigan 9.6 miles. Stretching the local a bit far?

    I am talking about local in the sense of visiting regularly, i.e 3-4 times a week and being part of that particular pub community.
