    Default It's been a long time

    Okay so we are now well in to another lockdown. Some have enjoyed a bit more freedom with the tier system but we are all now in the same boat.

    If you could spend a few hours in one pub (no restrictions - table booking / service etc) which pub would it be ?

    Over to you.....

    Tough!

    Locally, I'd really like to have a few beers in the Blake Hotel.

    But on the other hand, what I've missed with the Covid regulations is going from pub to pub, no hassle of giving name and details, no using an app; so I'd like to go to the Crow Inn, Shakespeares, Kelham Island Tavern, Fat Cat and Gardeners Rest.

    Or if restrictions on public transport were to be lifted, a quick train journey to Derby to see how many of the 16 handpumps in the Brunswick Inn I can manage in one session. If still standing, the Sheffield Tap when I get back would be a nice option.

    Or going further afield, a train on the Settle-Carlisle line could get me to the Talbot Arms. Or a nice long journey with no face mask to the Lake District for a go at the eight hand pumps on the bar at the Manor Arms.

    Or if crowds are going to be allowed at football matches, how about a few pre-match pints in the Bricklayers Arms? It can get a bit crowded there on match days, but in your fantasy universe, presumably we don't have to worry about keeping two metres apart any more.


    Thanks for the suggestion, Delboy. It's been fun!

    One minute up the road to the village club and its six handpumps featuring mostly local beers from smaller Kent and East Sussex breweries...

    Otherwise, my favourite new pub of 2020 (and now one of my favourite London pubs): The Lord Tredegar.

    But if I were in my favourite local, within a 30-minute walk of where I live, I'd probably be in The Prince Alfred.

    I'd choose any of the 9 that I selected in this post on a 'Top 10 Pubs' thread which has not long celebrated its second birthday. (Actual title 'Your top 10 pubs)

    I'd happy spend an hour or three in any of them, either alone or in company, but right now, I'd choose The Bell at Aldworth, Berks.
