    Cool Back in the good old days!!

    Rose and Crown, The (Wincanton Road, TA10 9QT (Known as "Eli's")
    Turf Tavern (13 Wolverhampton Road, WS3 2EZ (known as "Tinkys")
    Blue Anchor Inn (50 Coinagehall Street, TR13 8EL (known as "the Bible"
    Drewe Arms, The (The Square, EX6 6QZ
    Tuckers Grave Inn, The (Wells Road, BA3 5XF
    Red Lion, The (Snargate, TN29 9UQ

    hi Liz

    i meant to pop a picture on from the inside of Tinkys - the main room is fantastic - real step back - sadly the exterior, the other rooms and the courtyard leading to the loos show too much neglect, rather than trying to keep it ye olde worldy.


    Walter Raleigh in East Budleigh is very traditional and springs to mind

    Step back into the Second World war at The Mars, Portsmouth

    http://www.pubsgalore.co.uk/pubs/13587/

    All that would be needed to recreate 1940 would be a few Tommies & Air Raid wardens and view in black & white

    Herr Hitler missed this one, which is why in time warp

    Not worth visiting BTW, unless you want real 1940s,indifferent beer & staff, no food, hard seats, scruffy, bomb damage [OK made last one up]

    I will have to seek that out en route to the IOW next year, Farway

    I did make me think of the Albion, Chester, which does the same for WWI

    I can offer you a couple in the Borough (that's South-East London, in the London Bridge area, if you're not sure).

    The George is (or at least was - I've no reason to think that it's status has changed) owned by the National Trust. It's a galleried coaching inn, with a courtyard (somewhat spoiled by the modern glass-fronted building on 2 sides). Popular with tourists, as you'd imagine, and expensive (no surprise there, either). Service can be a bit hit and miss as can beer quality.

    Err - is that a review - I see Pubs Galore hasn't visited yet - my experience is a few years old now.

    The Royal Oak is no more than 10 minutes walk away - I have added comments there, saying how it seems unchanged in 30 years or so. Pub historians will surely approve.

    fewer about now than when I started my drinking career, but here's a short list mostly favourites of mine,

    a couple in York that are still fairly Edwardian

    The Blue Bell

    Minster Inn

    one in Beverley, step back to 1880

    Nellies

    Harrogate, more victorian atmosphere

    Hales Bar

    Darkest Hampshire to enjoy prewar England

    Newport Inn

    and medieval style in Salisbury

    Haunch of Venison

    If you like the sixties here's three in Liverpool

    The Nook
    The Poste House
    The Globe

    come to think of it all the pubs in central Liverpool are Victorian/Edwardian, (like this one) 1960s or unpleasant modern things - they even have twigs

    As most of you probably know CAMRA has a national inventory of this kind of pub, anyone got the full list?

    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

    The Grapes, Leominster is old fashioned , very simple and very cramped.

    http://www.pubsgalore.co.uk/pubs/14312/

    The New Inn, Pembridge. Black and white coaching inn, with interesting features, in a beautiful village.

    The Bluebell in York is great
    The Railwayman's Arm is heaven

    The Great Western in Wolverhampton - i have reviewed that - is similar to the Railwayman in Bridgnorth

    Hey Conrad - can we have a smiley with love hearts on, or something to show super-affection, to show just how much i feel for these pubs?
