Some of you have met my mate Nige,he would like to know which are the very best real ale outlets in these two towns .I'm no help as I have never visited either.His only focus is quality real ale ,and doesn't care how shabby the pub or customer base maybe.He is on golf tour later in May with some thirsty punters (not me,I can't stand the game)and would appeciate advice on the absolutely must visit ale houses.He isn't a Pubsgalore contributor but I know he would value your help.

Thanks in advance,
