    Yeah, but surely a joke has a funny bit somewhere.

    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

    Indeed. I was surprised just how cheap the IKB in Portsmouth was when compared to a typical London 'spoons, but the disparity between Portsmouth and London pubs is nothing like as great.

    At the risk of being po-faced I clocked onto Bengali as being good value years ago and still occasionally order two cans and a pint glass if I don't care for any of the guest ales. His findings don't take into account the multi-buy option of three cans of 5.6% Black Sheep Pathmaker for a fiver which is roughly a litre or two short pint measures. It doesn't account for higher abv guests either. I was happy as Larry today in Glasgow's Hengler's Circus knocking back pints of Oakham Green Devil at £2.25. Glaswegians seem to have the taste for this beer as it seems to be a regular in the State Bar across the road and in the smaller JDW near Glasgow Central.

    Saw a food programme today where they were trying to save money.They looked at a Mcspoons in Liverpool where fish and chips were £9.50 but the bargain hunter took them on a 6 minute walk to another Mc spoons where the same meal deal was £6.95.

    I bet the expensive one was the Lime Street station based North Western. The typical; going rate for Fish Friday is now just under £7.50 which includes an alcoholic drink which can be Punk IPA. My recollection of Liverpool City Centre Spoons is that the food prices are fairly standard. I'll find out next week!

    I'm really pleased to hear that as for anyone with an eye on going around them all it is challenging! I very much doubt if I'll ever return there.

    The word is that the Peebles and Hawick outlets are also no longer for sale. This Hartlepool outlet has been sold to Tees Inns so is no longer a JDW. The Captain Alexander in Liverpool James Street id now open.
