The Purple Turtle, Reading

I know nothing about this place but this phrase caught my eye...

"Me and me husband went for a very short holiday to Reading."

Apart from the fact that the grammar calls into question the literacy of the writer, who the hell goes on holiday to Reading? You deserve all you get and probably more.

The Yorkshire Grey , Holborn

Fairly quiet when I dropped in mid-evening. It does seem to hover between pub and bar but I quite liked the atmosphere. Three beers on - Brakspears and two from Ringwood - Best and Boondoggle. My Brakspears was well-kept.

This is a nice enough place for after work drinks but nothing special to travel for.

The Duke of York, Clerkenwell

Nicely refurbished since my last visit and, as previous reviewer says, the name has been changed to the Clerk and Well. The layout remains pretty much the same though with a large space at the front of the bar and a smaller area with pool table tucked away to the left and rear of the bar. A couple of wall mounted flat screens cater for the footy fans.

Only two pumps but Oxford Gold and Landlord - two I like - so I wasn't too disappointed. I had a well kept pint of Landlord. I didn't try the food so can't really comment on that aspect but this is a nice place for a pint.
