This pub is busy most days and evenings so there will be quick tu...

Re: Alfie's Wine Bar & Bistro, Litte Sutton

The Piddle beer is still on here and still quite a decent drink,across the road at the Olde Red Lion Trooper is the regular with one-three national guests,on this occasion three from the Marstons umbrella. Still sad news over the road at the Travellers Rest where this former real ale stronghold duri...

Re: Alfie's Wine Bar & Bistro, Litte Sutton

First time visit to Alfie's for a drink and expecting Robbo's beers was pleasantly surprised to be confronted with a seasonal from the Piddle brewery and found it very good at £3/pint, other cask was Bombardier. This bar wouldn't look out of place on Chester's high street never mind uptown Little Su...

Re: Vauxhall Motors Social Club

Other than photographing a Waxwing outside the club years back, only ever set foot in the place back in the 80s when all they had was fizzy Tetleys.

As opposed to the demise of cask at the GK HH in the Coliseum,some interesting real ales were spotted alongside the usual GK IPA being from Red Willow and Salopian,looking at Trip Advisor they do seem to have some sort of rotating guest ale policy. Meanwhile over the road at the Harvester two Sharp'...
