The Kings Head, Lewes

So, the solution to a failing local is once again to 'gastro' it. Great. Harvey's Sussex Best and Hepworth Prospect were on good form when I visited at the end of November before a trip to The Pan. A little pricey, but hardly a surprise. Food looked ok. Sadly the place felt soulless. Typical gastropub interior. It was, however, quite busy - clearly the DFLs like it, which is fair enough. I won't be returning though. A shame to scratch it off my pre-match list. At least the likes of the Gardener's, Elly, Brewer's etc. continue to thrive as proper pubs. Well done to them for getting the formula right. If you want a food-orientated pub, head over to the Snow Drop.

The Duck and Drake, Leeds

Great spot. Followed up recommendations from this site and the GBG 2007 and decided to meet a friend here when I was visiting Leeds for work in April 2007. Sat in the public bar. A great selection of ales on tap. I tried four of them, including a nice porter called 'Ace of Spades' from the Ossett Brewery near Wakefield. Had a very amusing conversation with a very 'jolly' bloke who explained to me how the bumble bee was the answer to the malaria pandemic in sub-Saharan African...powerful stuff. Tasty pork scratchings.

Neptune, Hove

What a great place. I love coming here when I'm down our beach hut for a few pints of Hophead or Sunburst. A fascinating mix of locals.
