    Default Pubs in the north are much better than pubs in south.

    I used to get around the north on a regular basis and any excuse i would stay out for a few days,my own little bit of man time which sadly the ladies in our lives do not appreciate.
    I used to get round Birmingham, Walsall,Warrington,Runcorn,St Helens,Bolton,Rochdale,Manchester,Leeds Wakefield,Derby,Sheffield,Northampton and many more areas, it was great to be in those pubs serving good beer at low prices,i would always get through about 30 per night and always went looking for a good curry house to round the night of.
    Made a lot of friends along the way and they never seem to forget me when i return sometime later? strange that?

    Maybe a section of good B&B Guest houses on the forum could be a good idea,ones that are near to boozers,then maybe i could phone and book and get back up north for some great entertainment,good company and great beer.

    I have lived in the South of England, the North of England and Scotland, I have drank all over the UK from Zennor in Cornwall to Wick in the far north of Scotland, from Ulster to Norfolk, and each area has pubs with their own special magic.

    We are very lucky to have our wide range of pubs from the rural time capsules of the Sun at Lentwardine, or the Newport at Braishfield to the high Victorian splendour of pubs like the Philly in Liverpool or the Bartons Arms in Aston, we have weird and wonderful pubs, estate pubs, city centre dives, foody pubs, sports pubs, pubs with strippers, music pubs, canal side pubs, tickers pubs, the basic old boozer,and even JDW...........

    and guess what, I have my favourites but I love them all, although sometimes they infuriate me, worry me, even scare me. I don't care where they are, it doesn't really matter. What matters is the beer and the company not location.

    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

    Hurumph! Anti - Welsh are you then?


    I agree though, a good pub is the sum of it's parts, not good just because of one of them.

    Right, quick visit before the big day, bluddy cheek

    I have travelled around a lot, & like oldboots all from from Cornwall to Skye, had good, bad & indifferent beer everywhere.

    As for pubs & people I think it all depends what you are used to and general attitudes of the locals, for instance in Wales the sods where speaking English, then went into Welsh when we walked in, opposite on Skye, they were talking in Gaelic, switched to English when we walked in. In Liverpool never understood a blooming word anyway

    If PG are going to list B & B, how about churches? Always a pub near a church
