    Not 100% if the new purpose built temple has one , but the old one certainly did , serving Tetley Smooth and Carlsberg , the place was a bit like a small leisure centre with a Gym , function room(for hire , maybe thats why they had a bar) as well as the main prayer rooms .

    Darn right OB, as well as chopped wood next to gas fires and bloomin' vases and abstract sculpturey stuff. Ban smiling and Christmas too.

    One handpull (aka handpump), selling Bathams MILD - all you need.

    Ah Soupy! Batham's Mild, nice as it is, is not enough. How about Wye Valley Butty Bach? Or Beowulf Beorma? Or Two Towers Jewellery Porter? Banks's Mild is also a very nice pint. Even Batham's Bitter or Enville Ale? And Milton Brewery's Mammon, very strong, but very tasty. Black Dog Rhatas - amazing!

    I'd say a pub needs at least four real ale hand pulls, two different pale beers and two different dark beers.

    But not Purity...Oh no, nothing by Purity...

    and a really good cider for the rare occasions it's merited.

    I agree with your rationale. The Good Beer Guide is, as it says on the tin, a guide to good beer rather than specifically a pub guide. An example I have come across this week is Bernie's Real Ale off-licence in Shirley, Solihull. It's been in the GBG for about 25 years or something but it's clearly not a pub ........ so I won't be adding it, taking a photograph or doing a review
    Waes hael!

    I prefer the darker ales but it seems the majority of beers on offer are on the paler side because that's what sells. E.g. the beer board in the Wellington is predominantly A and B category beers, even in winter, and typically only one or two D or E http://www.thewellingtonrealale.co.u.../beerboard.php

    Give me Sarah Hughes Dark Ruby and Highgate Mild anyday!

    (By the way, GS, they are still working on the Boars Head)
    Waes hael!

    Is 16 having an identity crisis? I'd have thought SPA was special pale ale, but Cat.D?

    I've not come across colour classifications A-E before. Also I'd hate to have to order ales by pump number-reminds me of a dodgy Chinese! It gives the impression that the landlord/barstaff aren't interested in the beers themselves, and just see them as a commodity to knock out a la TESCO.

    I don't mind that, tbh, probably speeds up service when there are a lot of beers on. Often ordered by number at The Crown, where they certainly aren't disinterested in beer. I believe that would be the case at the Wellie too.
    Just wish there were more pubs around where choice of ales made numbering likely!

    I suppose I don't really like busy pubs (did all that years ago)-didn't really care for the Market Porter, despite the wonderful range-preferred the nearby Rake, even though its really too achingly trendy for a bumpkin like me.
