    I've not been very well travelled during May,Just only London trip plus a couple of hours in Winchester, so this month I shall go with a pub I use fairly regularly and has had some cracking beer on lately, The Ten Tun Tap House. . Blue Scrumpy was unlucky with his one cask beer there's normally three on, though it is craft keg led.

    Finally got back to the New Barrack Tavern, good long chat with landlady Steph while she was setting up after opening, well done them for battling through the terrible period of covid and re-emerging. Did she say 20, or 30 years they've been there now?

    Poked my head round the door during a brief spell in Durham in the mid '70s, only to find there was no real ale. My loss. Spent most of my pub time in the Half Moon for the Bass, and lunchtimes in the Pot and Glass, Nevilles Cross for the fizzy Lorimer and Clark's Best Scotch. The P and G is now a supermarket I think. I've enjoyed the accounts of your visit.

    That'd be 20 I reckon, Jim. When I came to Sheffield in late '97 I worked across the road at an office above the casino, and I started going to the New Barrack Tavern around May 1998. At that time it was managed by James Birkett, formerly of the Fat Cat and Kelham Island Brewery. He moved on from the Barracks and bought the Sheaf View in the early 00's, then the Blake Hotel in 2010 and the Wellington and the Neepsend Brewery in 2016. So I reckon that Kev and Steph must have taken over around 20 years ago.

    A poor month, with just two pubs reviewed with a score of '6' or over. The runner-up goes to:

    The Ship

    The clear winner goes to:

    The Grapes

    I enjoyed visiting all three of the new to me Shipley venues, on a recent Saturday, but Hullabaloo just shaded it. A really good atmosphere and bumping into 'old boots' was a bit of a bonus.
