    Here's a toughie: can you make a different shape for the marker if the pub's location is "best guess"? This would a) prompt some checking before setting out, and b) avoid frustration when arriving at location and finding no pub. Just a thought.

    I am very impressed! Noticed you seemed to be hitting them fairly regular but not to that extent

    There is a "splinter" off of the micro tickers and I for one agree with it- the stillage versus handpump micro. Maybe an "S" or "H" in the site to distinguish ? I have had a lot of moderate stillage beer in micros...........

    Stillage every time for me, especially for low turnover beers.

    It's G (for "gravity") in the Good Beer Guide.

    Not saying that you haven't, but a lot of people drink with their eyes and if their beer doesn't have a frothy head they reckon it's not right. One of my most memorable beers was from stillage here - not a micropub, admittedly.

    Late to the party. I couldn't see the visited column at first and then realised it was because I wasn't signed in to the main site on my mobile. A surprising 26 for me, better than expected. I'm surprised this hasn't reopened the 'what constitutes a micro pub' can of worms though.

    The visited/non-visited is a great facility - I'm sure someone else will have asked, but is there any plan to do this on the main map?

    Meant to say thanks to Dave for this new feature, it will be great to see which micros to target when I eventually get out and about again

    There's always one troublemaker! If people think this would be useful I can look into it.

    Definitely, but having to rewrite the main mapping. I need to get the new version to load only the area you are looking at rather than the whole country.

    I recall asking you if this would be useful, I think at the York crawl, so it's only taken me 6 years to get around to doing.
