The Swan, Bloomsbury

Good location and a decent enough selection of ales including an oyster stout from the Hammerton brewery. Sadly, Greene King have their mitts on the corporate control so it's very workaday otherwise with bright lighting and an after work crowd.Bloomsbury is no mecca for pubs and is probably slightly above average for the area - although the Queen's Larder down the ginnel is superior.

Queens Larder, Bloomsbury

Falls into that slim category of acceptable Greene King pubs, presumably because its attractions entice enough trade for the landlords to plough their own furrow and resist corporate control. Hence, two of the three ales were guests and a Redemption Hopspur went down very well. If a Dane were to visit, they'd be praising us for our understanding of the now ubiquitous 'Hygge' concept.

The Cheshire Cheese Hotel, Buxton

As excellent as you would expect of any pub that plies Titanic ales. The Plum Porter was divine as usual and various others were on including Iceberg and Steerage - a very harsh quibble would be to highlight the lack of the brewery's Dark Cherry, Raspberry Wheat Beer and Chocolate and Vanilla Stout on the day we were there. Some great guest ales too and the full Titanic range is available to buy by the bottle along with Plum Porter chutney. To top it off, a steak and plum porter pie was carried off with brio - all human life is here and it's worth travelling half the length of the country to visit - which we did.
