    Unfortunately it looks like Tim and his gang have had to pull out of this venture in Shaw, nr Oldham. Shame really Shaw could do with some descent non J.W.Lees real ale.

    Oldham is notorious for anti-drink / neo-pro behaviour so it's not very surprising.

    Tell us, now, how and when

    It also has a rep for being one of the most drunk fuelled town centres around.

    The more you crack down the worse it becomes?

    Have to hang my head in shame here, unfortunately my Northern nieces contribute to this reputation

    Interesting "shop front"-looks like a micropub!

    "Luxury flats" probably means some poky shoebox that someone will spend £200k on for 75% ownership, expecting a "foot on the housing ladder" only to find he'll probably never afford anything bigger!

    My local rag tonight reports that Martha's Vineyard in Walsall town centre http://www.pubsgalore.co.uk/pubs/38892/, which closed suddenly last week, is to be given a £1.3 million and transformed into a specialist real ale pub after being bought by JD Wetherspoon. The move was encouraged by the success of the JDW Imperial just around the corner.

    Given JD's already sell real ale, does anyone know if this move represents a new JDW brand?
    Waes hael!
