see mr martin is stopping selling more drinks from EU countries, including brandy. I think the blokes been auckward. French Brandy will be replaced by american and australian brandy. The French do Brandy best (never knew other countries did it until today) and the germans do wheat beer best which he is also going to stop selling.

Still no word on when he is stopping the sale of Guinness, Hop House 13 and Magners ?

As John Smiths is owned by a Dutch company, I assume that will be taken off as well before Brexit Day.

...claims to rank them in order of quality. In ascending order, they are:

17. Wetherspoons - Victoria railway station

15. The Angel - 3-5 Islington High Street, Islington

14. The Sir John Oldfield - 29-35 Farringdon Road, Farringdon

13. The Willow Walk - 25 Wilton Road, Victoria

12. The Masque Haunt - 168-172 Old Street, Shoreditch

=====================================Agree the Crosse Keys is excellent. Stunning interior and larger than average selection of ales.
Considering how busy HH normally is, I think the staff in there were the most efficient of any'spoons I have been in. My pre train watering hole for many years and a fave haunt of Coupwotcoup for 'totty watching'.
Shakespeares' Head. The others must be poor if this isn't number 18.
The Masque Haunt. The worst 'spoons I have ever been in.




I don't need Google. I have a Hoddy.

Disappointing to hear seeing as they made such a big thing about it with regards to size and the "terrace". Still must be a better bet price wise to The Betjamin so still kind of looking forward to having a beer next time I hit the capital.

Makes good business sense to shut a really popular pub and not give an indication of when it is to reopen!! Unless of course they have been stripped of licence?Sly

CAPTAIN RIDLEY'S SHOOTING PARTY, Bletchley

Visited on Saturday on returning from Buckingham.

An excellent establishment, including many features relating to Enigma and Bletchley Park.
A delicious pint of Daleside Morocco Ale, and some food perfectly cooked to the second Tongue

Definitely one to return to.
