Labour In Vain

Labour In Vain

StoneStaffordshire

Recommended by E TA

A large 19th Century house which has previously been a village shop and post office, it has been extended and now has a strange mixture of internal styles that feels a bit odd. This isn’t helped by the atmosphere – or lack of it – when you walk in. ... [more>]

A further beer was available on my visit today, Low Hanging Fruit from Paradigm. Quality was good. They have however stopped the CAMRA discount.
Nelsons Head

Nelsons Head

St. IvesCambridgeshire

Recommended by Graham Coombs

A Greene King pub in a shopping street, refurbished in a sort of gastro style but without any attempt to actually be a gastropub. Bare floorboards, dark walls and painted wood do not do much for the overall feel of the place. The interior is semi-div... [more>]
Oliver Cromwell

Oliver Cromwell

St. IvesCambridgeshire

Recommended by Graham Coombs

An old corner pub tucked away in the side streets near the river. Lots of aged woodwork give a cosy feel, but at lunchtime was a bit over-focussed on food for my liking. Some reasonable beers on offer though, with Adnams Bitter and Ghost Ship, Woodfo... [more>]
Royal Oak

Royal Oak

St. IvesCambridgeshire

Recommended by Graham Coombs

A good locals' pub with an interesting layout. There is a small vertical drinking bar at the front, with a cosier area behind the bar. The other side has a front corner room, but the largest room is to the rear, which hosts a brace of dartboards and ... [more>]

Swan & Angel (JD Wetherspoon)

St. IvesCambridgeshire

Recommended by Graham Coombs

A newish 'Spoons' in a modernised building, so in good condition throughout with tasteful, if unexceptional, décor and furnishings. The one large room extends past the side bar to a glazed area with a small patio beyond. The beer range included examp... [more>]

Converted to residential use.

Old Ticket Office

CambridgeCambridgeshire

Recommended by Graham Coombs

Conversion of old station buildings into a trendy craft bar. which has clearly had some money spent on it though possibly not wisely. The interior is a mixture of dark colours and bilious green, while the bar area seems rather oversized for the room,... [more>]
The Mitre

The Mitre

CambridgeCambridgeshire

Recommended by Graham Coombs

A slick Nicholson's pub with lots of polished wood and a fairly upmarket feel. It extends back to a dining area at the rear. Several guest ales are on offer alongside the usual regulars and condition was very good (Cask Marque accredited).
Albion Brewery Bar

Albion Brewery Bar

NorthamptonNorthamptonshire

Recommended by Real Ale Ray

Phipps brewery goes back to 1864, when the Phipps brothers from Burton on Trent started brewing in Northampton. The last pint of Phipps beers came to a halt in 1968 under Watney's and was only available in bottles up until 1972. In recent years a few... [more>]

ManchesterManchester (Greater)

Recommended by Pub SignMan

This is a typical city centre Brewdog bar, just down a couple of doors down from the Albert Hall. The chain’s distinctive industrial stylings are in evidence here, thanks to a concrete floor, stone topped bar counter and exposed utilities running acr... [more>]
The Feathers

The Feathers

SW1London (Central)

Recommended by Pub SignMan

This is a fairly grand Nicholsons pub opposite St James’ tube station. You enter directly into the main bar area, with a smart servery positioned over to the right. The bar has a nice curved counter with a panelled front and copper top, mirrored pill... [more>]
Rose & Crown

Rose & Crown

SE1London (Central)

Recommended by Pub SignMan

Hidden away down the old back street of Southwark, this is a cosy, traditional boozer of the sort that is becoming harder to find in the city centre. The pub has a simple L-shaped layout that clearly signposts a former multiple room layout, not least... [more>]
Beer Hawk South Bank

Beer Hawk South Bank

SE1London (Central)

Recommended by Pub SignMan

This is a smart new craft beer bar and bottle shop from the Beer Hawk mail order company, operating out of a unit in a very expensive new development just a stone’s throw from the Southbank. The bar has a very simple single room set up with exposed f... [more>]
