    I've found this very small photo of a match on the green from 1968, and would guess that it was flat. But it's very hard to tell unless the photo is taken deliberately to show the crown.

    "...a huge beer garden (a former bowling green) that is inevitably full of students at the first sight of summer sunshine."

    Isn't the beer garden at the Original Oak just a disused bowling green? It's been a long time, so I may have misremembered.

    Fleece, Bretforton - but a very long time ago, with my grandparents, in the 1970s, before it was very badly damaged by fire.

    Thanks John.

    I'm already planning on doing the Sheffield Tap, Fat Cat and Wellington on Monday, so maybe I'll leave those for a bit later in the week. Tuesday, perhaps. :)

    I see him most mornings, when he stares back at me from the bathroom mirror with a puzzled look on his face.

    Can't argue with those! Also on the same street is Atelier, a craft beer cafe bar, which usually has a couple of hand pumps on the go. Watch out - it's a 10pm closer! (And the Curfew closes even...

    It's about time you did a bit of exploration, then. It's only a staycation for me and the other northerners, but it counts as a foreign holiday for you, without the quarantine.

    Does that mean you've sat in the beer garden of those three? Or just had a drink at the pub some time?

    If the former, I think there's only the Fountaine at Linton I can be almost certain to have...

    Most of my pub visits so far have been to pubs where I am familiar with the beers that are likely to be available. Partly this is because the pubs have anticipated low demand and stuck to a core...

    Just one of many, many things that used to annoy me about Wetherspoons. Since I stopped using them, not so much.

    Another good week for drinking in pub gardens, or car parks, or just a pavement with traffic roaring past: who cares? So long as it's real ale.

    Tuesday saw a mammoth session at the Fat Cat....

    I did ask for a top up - I'm not saying which pub - it was our fifth round of drinks, and maybe the lass thought we were past caring, but it was seriously short. Actually, it wasn't even my drink,...

    A fitting tribute, especially as it involved such a noble sacrifice. Those bottles must have been quite a difficult carry with cold fingers!

    Perhaps a new thread for this one?

    Between Blackburn and Accrington is The Victoria, as I'm sure Quinno is aware.

    My experiences of drinking in Accrington are somewhat overshadowed by the lack...

    Very cold and a bit of rain today in Sheffield; this is not the weather for sitting in beer gardens.

    Luckily the World Snooker Championship was on TV at the Sheffield Hatters Inn, so I stayed in...

    Most of the pubs I've been to since 12 April have maintained previous prices (Raven Inn £2.70, Fat Cat £2.80, Sheffield Tap £3.60), but the Kelham Island Tavern seems slightly more expensive (£3.30);...
