On Saturday, witnessed by my good lady, so it must be true, I had some of the best service I've ever had in a pub. And it was done so effortlessly and naturally, that it made it so much the better. It wasn't corporate forced, or scripted. Just properly done.

Where is this gem? Well I can't tell you yet, as I encountered it when I was judging pubs for the Greater Manchester Pub of the Year and I don't want to prejudice anything. The closing date for judging and scoring is up soon, so I'll tell you then.

I'm still pretty chuffed about it, which shows how bloody rare it is.
