    They specifically mentioned this pub, which has the Glaslyn Ale on at the moment:

    That's a good pub any day of the week, and if it has Glaslyn Ale on then...

    Well Conrad has raided the office swearbox and spent the cash on Pubs Galore T-Shirts so some of us won't be hard to spot.

    Cannot join you on 22nd, but will be in London for a crawl on 1 Dec. Getting underground from Newbury Park on the central line, and wondered if any of you would know what sort of ticket I would need to get to and from there during the day and be able to move around London on the tube.

    Last time we visited Rake, Market Porter, Wheatsheaf, Cask,Pub and Kitchen, Wenlock, Old Fountain, Doric Arch, Bree Louise, and King Charles 1. Going to try adding Brew Wharf, Southampton Arms and Euston Tap.

    Expecting Wenlock might be closed by then, but can check that nearer the time.

    Any others near enough to those that we should do anyone?

    One-Day (off-peak) Zones 1-4 Travelcard is £6.30 (Newbury Park is in zone 4). That'll do for all trains, tubes, DLR and buses, even the tram if you venture that far out.

    A new name to me, tho I see he's been around there a little while.
    Surprised he's reviewed Park Tavern but not nearby Willoughby.

    My attendance is still dependent on the considerations you mentioned.

    I would suggest a flutter on whoever Altrincham are playing to win. Should do the job.

    Gill, I have to take my hat off to you. Despite living in London since 1986, I have never been to, or even noticed the existence of, Newbury Park tube.

    The central line will take you through Leyton so, depending on time, you could take the 69 bus to William IV (home to Brodies Brewery, £1.99 a pint). Bus is listed as 15mins, but maybe a little less. Central line also for Chancery Lane from which a visit to Ye Olde Mitre is fairly obligatory (maybe best mid-afternoon), in that vicinity you also have options for Jerusalem Tavern (St Peters Brewery), Castle (Furnival St, ~8 handpumps), Cittie of York (Sams, but impressive interior), Seven Stars (a little quirky, usually summat worth drinking tho unlikely for a new 'tick'), Knights Templar ('spoons, if you want a look at the 10/12(?) pumps), Edgar Wallace (8 handpumps, I haven't had the chance to visit since Shane left earlier this year), Princess Louise (Sams again but amazing retention of Gin Palace interior).
    If you get up to Southampton Arms, others near there warranting a visit are Junction Tavern and Pineapple.

    ps. if you did want to do William IV as well as Southampton Arms, there's a half hourly train from Leyton Midland Road to Gospel Oak overhead (26mins).
