Profile information

I like good, friendly pubs, decent beer, good food and good people. Location doesnt matter. I take Camra's Good Beer Guide with me while in the UK, and use various sites when overseas. Prefer independent pubs to big chains, and enjoy micro brewies' and brew pubs' beers.

The Claret Free House, Addiscombe

Worrying news Slerpy - any further detail as to whether it is being sold on as a pub or to be turned into flats etc?

Pub du Vin, Birmingham

Rating from Camra GBG-inspired visit of 28.12.2010 when first attempt was made to add the pub to this site: Modern comfortable cellar bar beneath Hotel du Vin on Church Street. Three handpumps dispensing up to 3 real ales. Two Towers Mild & Brazen was excellent, alternative was Purity Mad Goose, third pump out of use. Food available at the time included half-pounder with gruyere and bacon for £13 or a charcuterie platter for £6. An a-la-cart menu was also available from the bistro. Divided into distinct drinking areas; one room with a sports TV screen. Relaxed background music. Beer was well-kept, venue was worth a visit at the time.
