    Seeing as we're naming random decent pubs, Paddy's Irish Bar in Pas De La Casa is a solid 8/10.

    Post Office Vaults is excellent, I agree. Pure Bar is good too. Clink in Digbeth is an excellent bottle shop.

    No time whatsoever for Tilt or Brewdog mind you.

    Clink has had to change its name. Now called Beer Digbeth.

    I'll give you the Head of steam, not massive of the other 3, Brewdog is always nigh on impossible to get served. Wellies is ok.

    I love the Old Contemptables, had many a good night in there. Fox and chicken used to be good up constitution hill, and queens arms in St Paul's sq

    The Old Contemptables was my local when I was at Aston Uni.

    Big head's up to the Western. Proper pub. I've a soft spot for the Posada too.

    The Mainwaring Arms was an old haunt of mine too. Duke of York at Millmeece was another one in that neck of the woods.

    One of the worst I've ever been in is Cundy's in Silvertown, E London.

    Weirdest moment was in the 'Why Not' on Wolverhampton Road, Stafford about 15 years ago whilst having a pint with Kenny.

    I used to love the Posada too. It's been genuinely awful for the last few years though, unfortunately.

    Posada was my local when I lived in town, I liked the place but it always was a bit up and down, must admit not been in for a while

    McGee being out the back used to spoil it/make for entertainment dependant on your views.

    Another vote for the western it's my go to pub in town.

    The Woodbridge Inn at Coalport is a nice place to visit, nice food, cracking location and decent set of beers/gins. Downside is that it's a bit on the pricey side and service can be a little slow. Great place to go on a summer evening

    Worst one I've been to since being back, The Thomas Botfield, Telford. Maybe it's better in an evening, but lunchtime it looked like a good fight had taken place.

    Part of the same group as the Fox, Newport and tbe Armoury Shrewsbury and a few others, good atmosphere, food and some beers but like you say a bit pricey for what it is

    Duke of York, Millmeece is a house now I think, was a decent Indian restaurant for a while

    Honourable mention for the Hog’s Head, best pub in Wolvo for beer choices by a mile.

    The Bell at Trysul is a favourite, enjoying proper faggots and peas with bathams is always a winner.

    The Oaken arms is decent too for food, plus it welcomes dogs and has a circular walk. So you get a nice walk out with the dog and come back for a few pints and something nice to eat. It also has/had the biggest selection of whiskey I had seen in a pub. On the pricey side though but it's good food

    U[QUOTE=Keef;1240131]The James Joyce,Prague.
    Admittedly it's an Irish pub,but it's a proper country pub feel,good choice of beers,foods ok,atmospheres great,best of all its away from the tourist trail,down a side street,and used to have a tiny sign in the window so dead easy to miss,it's got tables outside now,so looks a bit more pubby
    The Sherlock Holmes, Bialystok Poland
    English pub name,but weirdly a proper polish bar,it's right in the centre and great for people watching,I went in fully expecting an English bar,wasn't brave enough to risk a polish bar but anyway,that didn't quite work out.
    There's a good one in koprivnice in the Czech Republic,behind the main hotel by the tatra museum,but it's name escapes me,I got suckered in by the 80s music blaring out,and it was a lot better than I thought it would be,and of course proper Czech lager[/QUO

    Me coming across as a bit of a dick with this post,recommending random places in towns you're not likely to visit,Bialystok is very nice,as you'll all find out if we draw FK Jagionella away in the Europa league,and the tatra museum is worth £3 of anyone's money for the fantastic cars and proper kick ass trucks
    See post #5516 of ex wolf watch to find out why in my house,i hate Kenny Miller

    There's a Brewdog Overworks even there this weekend. Wild fermented, barrel aged, farmhouse, imperial stouts and sours.... That should go down well with the pre-match football crowd

    The Royal Oak has done well to survive. Quite a few nearby pubs have closed including The West Way, Rickerscote Arms, The Nesbitt and The Garth.

    After years with a dearth of decent pubs in the town centre Stafford now has a few. The Sun, The Bird in Hand, Slaters, The Rose and Crown and Market Vaults are all good but the micoropub on Newport Road, The Floodgate, is great. Five guest beers from pale to stout, always well kept and all £3.20 a pint.

    The Nessie and Garth were great, i grew up midway between both and they were where I had my first pints (legal and non-legal). The Oak, Rickie and these rest of them are all shite and should have gone long before both.

    Funnily enough the Sun and Bird in Hand were great pubs back in the 70s.

    It just doesn't lend itself to football sadly. The shape of the building means it fills up way too quickly.

    Quit your moaning anyway, the Boho has plenty of weird ass beers for you...

    Yeah Boho's sound. Probably the best post-match piss up I've ever had after the Man City game in there, must have had at least two of every beer they had, and they had some fucking good ones that day.

    Seem to remember that being one of my "ah, I'll get the train home about half six" days. Which went well.

    Dozed off on the bus home after that game and looped around Ashmore and was heading back to Wolves
