    Being married to some such soul I can confidently recommend a visit to the Station Inn in Whitby. Always has a range of 10 real ales and open fires to boot.
    The Man Who Knows says they are very good.
     
  2. Mrs. Dekka frequents Costco far more regularly than I care for. However she always mollifies me by bringing back a case of Celebration Ales. Two each of Oxford Gold, Marston's Pedigree, Banks's Bitter, Jennings Cumberland Ale, Old Thumper and Wychwood Hobgoblin all for about £14. Gerrin!

    Anybody in the vicinity of Derby should really be a regular at the Brunswick assuming it is still serving up its own brews (including recession ale and the wonderful triple hop) and about 14 others. The Flowerpot was always good and for a great jukebox and some Timmy Taylor Landlord the Compton Arms was always a favourite. Have not been in a good three or four years so any news that they are still worthwhile would be welcome.
    In Brum the Anchor was always my haunt of choice along with the Lamp. Both were still all present and correct last year.....

    I had a pint of sour tetley the other day. It is easy to forget how bad beer used to be but it all came flooding back.
     
  5. bnm, if The Man Who Knows enjoys ale at The Tap & Spile (Sorry, can't quite bring myself to call it The Station!), he might like the local ales on offer at The Middle Earth and the selection of ever-changing ales at The Endeavour. Both on the East side. The Endeavour is tiny but has a strong affinity with the lifeboat, which is a good enough reason to show patronage!
     
  6. Music to my ears!
    Friday and Saturday evening in the "Dr. Syntax" at Stocksfield drinking TT Landlord... sheer bliss. <>
    Roll on tomorrow evening!
     
  7. We shall be up Whitby way in August so will march into the Tap and Station and tell them that poddy and Mr.BNM sent us. :&not;))

    Dekka...Timmy Taylors is planned for next week.

    Oh heck. Nostalgia. I could not tell you the last time I had some proper "real ale". I do not frequent pubs, and I find bottle beer way too gassy. One 330ml bottle is generally too much wind for me, and its sterilised muck anyway.
    Oh for me student days of a skinful on a friday and saturday night!
     
  9. You want to try some stuff from a micro brewery near you...bottled beer has come a long way since the 70's. :&not;))

    Then a visit to the New Inn & Cropton brewery near Pickering is essential as well. http://www.newinncropton.co.uk/brewery.htm I tried all six ales, some of them twice when I stayed there and all were excellent.
    If, on the other hand you want to find out what the best real ale tastes like, you'd need to vist a London pub selling Fullers ESB on tap. The Jack Horner on Tottenham Court Road serves it excellently kept.
     
  11. the trouble with drinking strange brews in strange pubs is..

    a) You forget the name of the beer
    b) You forget the name of the pub
    c) You forget which way is up and prove Newton wrong.

    I'm quite partial to a pint og London Pride though ,MM.

  17. A bit like Rose then, manny.
    Having said that, Rose, apart from the grey bits , you have a fine bit of facial growth going on there yourself. Fancy a Bishops finger?
