 the goldenlast-went in this place last year, quite an eyeopener to say the least
the inside of a 3star halex table tennis ball smells much like you'd expect it to.

The Watering Hole situated on Perranporth beach. The beer is fine but the location at sunset is unbeatable!

it sounds absolutely evil.

 

I don't care about the fact that it seems to be a #### hole, I like places like that

 

but bloody hell, I would't want o bereathe the same air is some of the zoids who seem to frequent the place. The ecomments by th patrons of the gaff make it seem more lik a bigotry heritage centre than a boozer: they could charge admission.

Basically 25 years progress across the North, One hell of a place for pubs.

Brookhouse Inn - Eskdale, Cumbria

I prefer the Woolpack a bit further up the road. We will be going back in May so I'll have to try them both again to see if I'm right :D

The guy who has the wool pack used to run the burnmoor inn (he renamed it the boot inn) and sold it on to Robinsons(who then turned a good pub into a dreadful one, what it's it with breweries)

The woolpack is a bit weird. It has one bit in the traditional pub decor and another bit in the style of a Deansgate type vodka bar

In easkdale you have a fantastic walk/train trip the King George IV at the junction is also worth a vist. It's great sitting on the front watching people who have just drove over hard knot pass looking for a less hairy rout back to Ambleside

Agree about the decor, leds under perspex doesn't really suit a remote pub in the lake district but the beer was excellent when I went as was the food. I like the taxi service where they drive you back to your campsite/house in an old army wagon so you can leave your car until the morning and designated drivers get free soft drinks at night. The Boot inn was pretty poor.

Anyone heading to Scarborough, Whitby or any of the other resorts in that area would do well to take a detour up on to the Moors through the dementedly bucolic Hutton-le-Hole and stop off at The Lion on Blakey Ridge.

Busy but friendly, the food's good, as is the beer and the view on a good day is pretty great, as the Ridge is the highest point in the North York Moors national park.

Just looked up Muker .... flipping heck, now that is the middle of nowhere!

Good job the pub's good; otherwise you'd have a long walk to find the next one.

There is a Chelsea pub in Silverhill in St Leonards, and the weeken after United had beaten Chelsea in the Champions League final, I went in there, not knowing it was a Chelsea pub, for a game of pool. The look on the landladys face resembled the look as though I'd just asked to have sex with her parrot.

Never been back, never got that game of pool either.

I think beer everywhere in the UK has improved.

 

British lager, however ... now that's still utter utter cack.

Spent an evening at the aforementioned Port Street Beer House in Manchester last night. Had one of the best beers I've ever tasted, Black Band Porter by Kirkstalls.
