    Default Lichfield & Tamworth

    I think I mentioned somewhere in one of these threads that Lichfield and Tamworth would make a good double header. I've not been to Lichfield for quite a few years, and then we went because Luton Town had a game in Tamworth but we wanted to try some different pubs. Since then, Tamworth has improved a bit, and the transport links between the towns are pretty easy.

    I'm going to have to agree with that, looking on the map I didn't realise Lincokn was so far up.

    Yes, Burton works well and is relatively easy to get to, being placed almost midway between Tamworth on the west coast main line and Derby on the east.

    I did a crawl there with the Beer & Pubs Forum people just before the first Covid lockdown. The actual itinerary is a little difficult to discern amid all the discussion, some parts of which are a little less pertinent than others, but this is my list of pubs actually visited by me on the day, in chronological order:

    Devonshire Arms
    Brews of the World (was keg only but now has cask too)
    Anchor
    Burton Bridge Inn
    Elms
    Barley Mow
    Dog
    Leopard
    Coopers Tavern
    Roebuck
    Weighbridge


    One or two of my choices were spur-of-the-moment wild cards, and I'm sure we can do better with a bit more planning. Some of the crawl went to the Derby Inn, which has since closed down, and had lunch at the National Brewery Centre. On the plus side, the Royal Oak in the town centre has changed hands and acquired a reputation for cask beer. We missed the Last Heretic and the Fuggle & Nugget (now Beeropolis) mostly because of a prediliction for "proper pubs", but also because of opening times not being conducive. (I went to the Weighbridge after everyone else had caught their trains, if I recall correctly - it's another late opener.)


    Edit: I've just seen this on the Weighbridge's Facebook page: a list of pubs on the Burton Ale Trail at the beginning of September. One or two of them might be a little bit too much of a walk for some (Alfred, Burton Town Brewery), but as there are 15 pubs listed, a little trimming wouldn't go amiss.

    When I visited The Last Heretic it was open at 11.00 am, it was a Saturday( on my way back from Sheffield as it Happens) and I think also due to the fact Burton were playing at home that day, nontheless it was very optune.

    That's quality research and a very extensive crawl.Sounds like you had a good day.

    I think the idea was that it would be a Brucie Bonus.

    Yes. I think he put together a route around E postcodes, which are largely a mystery to me outside Hackney or Tower Hamlets, which weren't Aqualung's natural habitat.

    I had previously suggested Burton too, so I'm definitely up for that.

    I'm very surprised that we haven't gone for a Burton, given the town's illustrious brewing history.

    I've no problem with Burton, but quite a few of us have been before, judging by past reviews.
