I haven't actually been to Goodison Park, but in suburbia I know Parkgate's closer to Neston than to Heswall. There is a lot of sand round Parkgate, definitely, but Heswall is uphill from the estuary (and posh).

Re: [Sale Holmfield] Nicholson's Pubs [In reply to] Can't Post or Reply Privately

I stayed in a hotel/pub in Knutsford a few years back - had been
covering an FA Cup game at Alty and there were a few smart boozers there...

Called the Royal -------- in the high street I think.

Wasn't there a decent boozer opposite Alty station?

There's one called the Station opposite, but it has been closed, but not boarded up, when I have been past it last Saturday and Sunday night. It has never been all that good though.

Ah, this was 1990 and as I have trouble remembering what
happened last week these days, then my memory has probably
been somewhat occluded Tongue

Went into 3 pubs by Liverpool Street Station yesterday, 2 turned out to be Nicolson Pubs! The Lord Aberconway and The Woodin`s Shades. Looked decent pubs, both had at least 6 real ales on tap, Food looked expensive 11.50 For Fish & Chips, think I will give that a miss. Two I went in were not that big and soon became packed.





The Magpie which is in New Street - opp Hamilton Hall - is the best ive been in and normally has 8-10 ales on tap
Doing the 'Ale Trail' of Nicholson pubs can make for a good days drinking.

Just realised that The Old Comtemptibles by Snow Hill Station in Brum is a Nicholsons pub as well, they've done an excellent job of the refurb there.
Not cheap but a very nice pub with plenty of ales on tap.

Went in the Doggets last Wednesday - t'other side of Blackfriars Bridge and
they were charging 4.90 a pint and nearly 20 sovs for a bottle of Rioja.

So Nicholson's are hardly competing with Wetherspoons.

Nicholsons's is just another brand name for Michells & Butlers like Ember Inns and Harvester and O'Neils etc.
Prices will always be a lot more than you pay at Wetherspoons.Smile

Do you know which pubs are allocated to Wrexham fans Gareth , or do the police not bother with restrictions for Non League Finals ?

Do Wrexham pack their fans in coaches like sheep!

17,000 fans and 41 coaches - that's over 400 fans per coach.

I just went to a Nicholsons in Oxford, the erstwhile "Eagle and Child". Only paid 3.20 a pint which was damn good for Oxford. the next pub I went in had a worse beer range and charged 3.60. I have been in a few of them and find them much more sympathetically run and restored than a lot of chains, and with a more varied beer range.

Food in Nicholsons pubs is upmarket compared to Spoons and generally dearer. Clientele is infinitely superior.

They have 7 outlets in Edinburgh. Was in the Haymarket last night before the Hearts v St Johnstone game. Good selection of beer and, for Edinburgh, reasonably priced. Food looked excellent and plenty bar staff. These are proper pubs with a bit of atmosphere, unlike most Wetherspoons.

Ah yes I have been in there too and they have done a good job with it. Doesnt really make up for the loss of the Caley ale House though...Frown

I was in another of these pubs, the Shakespeare just outside New Street in Birmingham. Again had an interesting beer range (We had Inveralmond Ossian!).
