Re: Teds bar Wrexham

Disappointing thread. I was expecting to read how some landlords called Edward had banned players and fans of the Racecourse-based football club.

Off the Wall

A place I've been avoiding for years, for a variety of reasons. Heard it had had a bit of a makeover so risked a glance today. Now 2 pumps - the ubiquitous 'craft beer' (sic Guardian), Doom Bar, and the more interesting Battlefield 1403, which was acceptable. Also able to watch Wimbledon and Trent B...

Re: The Ponsonby Arms

Chester FC Spoons tickers

Goodish news for you: The for-sale Lord Denham at Dagenham Heathway is still up and, if not running, at least limping. If it's still there in Feb, walk past the first set of pumps ("We don't use them.") to the predictable restricted range at the back. Yesterday the pleasant staff wouldn't initially ...
