    Default Pubs Galore Meet Up - Friday 12 November - Birmingham

    As stated in a separate thread, we are contemplating a meet up in Birmingham on Friday 12 November. Most of us will presmably be getting there mid-morning/lunchtime and will hopefully do a few pubs around the City Centre before departing early/mid evening. Since it will involve booking days off and reserving train/coach tickets, anyone interested should make their interest known here as it doesn't seem to be worth the costs and effort if only 2 people show up. I am up for it as is Quinno and Trainman was certainly not far from signing up. Anyone else interested?

    Having suggested some well-priced train tickets on the other thread, I notice (ok, I looked it up) that Roger's coach options currently amount to just £6.50, a good deal in anyone's book. But does one take the speed* & gained drinking time for the extra tenner?
    My potential participation is currently in the lap of my sponsors...

    *of the train, not whizz

    Cheapest train deal from London seems to be £7 - earliest 11:03 (arrive 12:27) - and back again at £7 - earliest 19:30 (arrive 20:54) - total £14.

    Anybody thinking of getting out to the Barton Arms, Aston (for building and beer) or the Bell, Harbourne (for location, mainly)?

    Might be fun, I've still got a fair bit of Birmingham city centre to explore so count me in.

    Tell us, now, how and when
    We may find the bravest men?
    A sure test, an easy test:
    Those that drink beer are the best

    I'm all booked up. Will be arriving at New Street at 10.23 and head straight for the Briar Rose for a stomach liner/churner breakfast and starter pint. I am booked on the 20.10 back to London which gives me the best part of 9 hours and hopefully some of you locals that can't get the day off might be able to pop along for a couple of hours in the early evening although I can't guarantee that we will be fully functional by then.

    I don't know Brum very well for pubs so I will rely on you chaps/chapesses with local knowledge to nominate a few "essentials" and plan an itinery. I will go with the flow although I would prefer to stick within walking distance of the City Centre rather than start journeying to the outskirts. There seems to be enough choice to keep us going for a day. Maybe this thread needs to be revisited for thoughts and ideas...
