    I'd have thought he'd drink in his local.

    He also went on to blame Starmer for not opposing children wearing masks in school - so selfish of him not to oppose protecting teachers.

    Well said. Having just had our first away day out of the Midlands for a long time (York in October 2020 our last venture) we were so happy to visit Reading yesterday, and enjoyed the gardens in Nags Head, Castle Tap and Allied Arms, and of course the 14 ales both cask and draft we found in them. We had 2 new pub ticks as had only been to the Nags Head before, and in my book they re 2 new pubs for us.

    I agree that ticking a pub and writing a review are 2 different things, I may have only 2 new pubs so far for 2021, but was overjoyed to have them, and look forward to away days to tick a few more seeing as holidays are off limits at the moment. I can't see a problem in reviewing a pub even if only in the garden. It could be useful for folk with kids and dogs.

    If the last review was ancient, it does at least let folk know the pub has survived the pandemic and is still open.

    A review is always useful in my opinion Gill, don't let those who are stuck in their ways and make strange rules for themselves put you off! You never know when your comments may be useful to someone.

    Feel a little wicked but after writing on the forum above, I have gone onto all the pubs we have been to since they reopened on 12.4.21 and written a review. Some hadn't had a visit for years, so it is a little bit to update this site showing pub is open for business.

    Going out now to visit Glasshouse brewery garden.

    Had my first post-lockdown pub visit on Sunday at The Oxted Inn (JD Wetherspoon). Unfortunately, they only had Ruddles and Doom Bar on cask, so the whole experience was hardly a great reminder of what I've been missing. The Doom Bar was only £1.99 a pint though, so at least I wasn't stung by the inflated prices that have been mentioned on the 'How Much?' thread.

    I managed to have a nose around inside the pub, so I'll leave a review.

    Not quite the same deal as my pint of Jaipur for 99p there just before everything shut in November!
