The Glass House, St Albans

Now a well-run and comfortable pub. Usually 3 ales, Deuchars, Pride & Black Sheep on my visit, and reasonable food throughout the day. 3 screens for the footie addicts, surprisingly pleasant garden out back. Clientele seem to have had a makeover as well, so pleasant atmosphere to match the decor.

Que Sara, Heanor

Now reverted to the Crown, less keen on attracting the young crowd, and beer selection has improved immensely. Usually Marlpool Scratty Ratty at 2 a pint, and 3 other local brews such as Blue Monkey. Very good value cobs and snacks, and also do Sunday lunches. Excellent staff, know what they're doing, nice to chat with if not too busy. Another GBG entry for Heanor next time?

Called in on a JQ crawl, found it very welcoming, good pint of Purity, nice refurb, but not sure about the tele's.

The Bartons Arms, Aston

Called in after football, very busy, but got served straight away, excellent Hobsons Mild, one of the guests. Also squeezed us into the eating area for an excellent Thai. Amazing to think this was due to be demolished for road widening in the 1970's, deserves to be on everyone's list of places to visit.

Railway Tavern, Langley Mill

Traditional community local, kept separate rooms, including nice rear lounge. Beers from Alcazar, with 3 or 4 on draght, and rest in bottle. Now does food also. Welcoming landlady, handy if your train's running late.

Great Northern, Langley Mill

Usual ex-Kimberley range of beers, good Sunday carvery, now extended to midweek. Friendly crowd including boaters in summer from adjacent canal basin, worth having a look around.

Inn the Middle, Langley Mill

An enterprising refurb a few years ago, the pub has remained reasonably smart, with a good choice of beers (including a 'Locale'), and good quality food at reasonable prices. The Sunday lunch is well worth trying, but it's best to book.

Red Lion, Heanor

A friendly and busy Wetherspoons, which always has at least one local guest beer. Now has a small side garden, so no longer a need to push past the smokers to get in. Unlike many 'Spoons, service is quick, both for drinks and food.

Three Hammers, St Albans

Very enterprising beer choice for a chain pub, probably needs more real ale drinkers to get through the guests. Friendly and knowledgable staff, in cotrast to the King Harry down the road.

Ye Old Mitre, Holborn

Beer choice has increased with extra Scottish ones all January. All ales in good nick, new ones come on most nights. Worthy local POTY, could be a contender for London again.

The Jerusalem Tavern, Clerkenwell

After dark, the pub is quite difficult to spot, as the sign is in darkness. The staff didn't seem to be interested in serving, but once the beer arrived, it was delicious, especially the Organic Best Bitter. Very cosy on a cold evening.

The Farmers Boy, St Albans

This place has always had dodgy regulars, even in the days of Viv and Tina. More important is the quality of the beer, which is now more consistent, and the food, which is now available longer again. Maybe we'll have some more Alehouse beers when Kev finishes at the LRL. This would make it a near perfect pub.
