I wouldn't be surprised if it's even more expensive than the Victoria outlet.
    I will do my best to call in on Saturday!

    To quote Mr Orwell (or Blair)

    "But, to be fair, I do know of a few pubs that almost come up to the Moon Under Water. I have mentioned above ten qualities that the perfect pub should have and I know one pub that has eight of them. Even there, however, there is no draught stout, and no china mugs."

    You could argue about the detail, but this list isn't too far off the mark from my experience (bar the three or four I haven't yet visited).

    So much depends on the date and time visited and the current management & staff. My top W Midlands one would be the Bishop Vesey.

    Haven't been in a single one mentioned, and that's more than enough.
