    Very nice! I'm about to set off for one of my locals, The Carlton Tavern. It has a very large garden, but hope it isn't packed.

    A great couple of hours in The Wyndham Arms, meeting up with old faces, superb beer from Fine Tuned (Sunshine Reggae on draft). First pint was in perfect condition, but if something looks too good to be true it probably isn't so a second pint was required to confirm. Still couldn't find anything wrong, so had to double-check. OK, final check, and all was still fine. Half a gallon, several dog biscuits (the dogs not me) and convivial company. It's good to be back.

    I'm off to Inn On The Green to potentially sit in a marque in a car park tomorrow. Not enamored but if intermediate norm I'll go along with it till it's worth making any effort to do new pubs when indoors returns. Don't even know what's happening with the 3 locals at the bottom of my road reopening.

    There was a flurry of snow early morning but this passed and with a some afternoon sun popped in here while passing.A well kept pint of Twickenham Grandstand slipped down ,it was great to have cask after almost 4 months without.All punters and staff were on a real high and even some passing drivers tooted their horns.

    A thoroughly enjoyable half gallon here surrounded by a cheery crowd in the sunshine.

    Iā€™d forgotten how good cask beer is and it totally refused to stay in the glass.

    I passed countless pubs on my 15-mile walk last night and probably about half were open, with many more obviously about to open in the next week or so. Some had brought in extra-long trestle tables and trestle benches - I even saw mixed furniture which included a swivelling office chair on castors (drunk in charge of a vehicle?), much seating was clearly breaching pavement boundaries. What was bloody obvious though is that they were all rammed with groups of six people. I don't think I saw a single couple, let alone solo drinker. Most websites I viewed said that only bookings were being taken and for no fewer than six drinkers. Around 10.00 pm I passed The Clissold Park Tavern and there was a vacant table, beyond their substantial beer garden, out on the pavement but it was sandwiched between two tables used by rather unsavoury characters and as the pub is far from satisfactory, I decided to forget about it.
    I reckon I'll have to wait for normality to return before I'll be back in a pub.

    In the beer garden at The Healey today, very pleasant, no issues whatsoever.

    We were booked in for 14:30 and got home about 20 minutes ago, just the four and a half hours!!!!

    Judging from Google, you seem to have the benefit of far lower population density, not afforded by Upper Street/Essex Road.
