    Not many visits this month,but I enjoyed this old favourite that I've known since I was a boy:The Ferry Inn

    Cavern of the Curious Gnome, Chester.

    Cracking little place with more than hints of the House of the Trembling Madness. Had a Chimay from the tap, and was stewarded over by a ten foot gnome!

    I wonder how foreigners would pronounce gnome...

    Even before I read Brainy Pool's review, I too thought that this place sounds like a Prog Rock album, something fronted by Rick Wakeman.

    Otherwise, some pretty terrible pubs due to mopping up the dross in Westminster and Islington, with just 11 new visits this month:

    The Charlotte Despard
    The Eaglet
    The Enkel Arms
    Lord High Admiral
    North Nineteen
    The Phoenix
    Sports Bar & Grill
    Three Falcons
    Whittington Stone
    Wig & Pen

    By a whisker, POTM goes to: Traders Inn.

    Just one new pub this month, but definitely worthy of a mention. The Prince of Wales was a couple of minutes stroll, along the canal, from my daughter's graduation at Symphony Hall. Decent beer (10 pumps?) and a friendly, welcoming landlady.

    So glad you enjoyed it and delighted that it is back on form after a long period of closure. This was one of my student haunts in the mid 70's,the nearby canal helped

    Paul was so taken with it on only previous visit that it became a must for him on his subsequent WY crawl, the only stop we made in Halifax.

    Sorry, but it has to be a club this month (and not just any old one, but just recognised with Camra's Club of the Year award): Marden Village Club (WhatPub).
