Re: Weteherspoon reject CAMRA card - is that right?

OFFICIAL : I've now had a letter from JDW in Watford saying " I can confirm that we no longer accept CAMRA cards".

Weteherspoon reject CAMRA card - is that right?

Went into Square Bottle this savvo, ordered cupla pints of a nice Wiltshire beer - proffered CAMRA card but bar staff said this no longer accepted (tho' vouchers would be ok) - is this a case of dumb staff or has something changed with JDW policy?

Re: Spitting Feathers to open second pub in West Kirby

Have a nasty feeling that this place is the old funeral directors in WK, so I don't quite see myself venturing in there (unless it's for a stiff one, I suppose!) Quite a interesting transformation btw, contra the recent switch from The Railway pub here in Chester, to the new funeral directors place....

Re: Marlborough Arms

Is this the one in St.John Street? Not the 'right' spelling for that, surely?

Re: Central Hotel, meet the brewer

We used to have the Secret Brewery, down in Witshire - perhaps this is their northern offshoot? Best not to tell anyone anything, then you don't have to kill them................

Re: Redball @ Kash

Surely those lite beers are redily available around the city - Harkers have nothing else!

No, keep 'on trend' Alex, strong beers are indeed the way to go! (we echo the thumbs-up for Amber, Brown, IPA btw)

Re: The Ship Victory

Only been in there once, seemed a bit ordinary, certainly as far as choice of beers is concerned - be different, if someone with a bit of beer knowledge took it on tho!
