La-di-dah Sutton Coldfield: I don’t like Sutton, or as Google Maps and pretentious twats seem to call it “The Royal Town of Sutton Coldfield”.

Darlaston (even if Google thinks Wednesbury): This was near to our bus, and a friend had suggested we popped in.

The Jigger’s Whistle 

25 Nov 17

Brownhills: Just within sight of Morris Miner and named after his official name, this is a new micropub (it opened a week ago ) in a old photography shop on Brownhills High St.

The Albert 

9 Nov 17

LLandudno: We had high hopes, as this was a sister pub to The Station , but it didin’t quite hit the mark.

The Cottage Loaf 

9 Nov 17

LLandudno: Pub on the site of an old bakery in the middle of town; it looks old, but it was built around 1980 with a lot of reclaimed material.

Rhos-on-Sea: Unexceptional, but not unpleasant seafront pub near the centre of Rhos.

The Station 

9 Nov 17

Colwyn Bay: Part of a small (2) local chain with The Albert, this is another stripped-wood recent refurb of an old pub, right on the main road through Colwyn Bay (if we disregard the A55, which bypasses the town in a cutting).

The Albion

Conwy: Fantastic, Grade-2-listed pub bating from the 1920s, with a glorious art-nouveau interior .

The Castle Hotel 

8 Nov 17

Conwy: Technically a hotel again, but the bar feels pubby, and it’s a proper old coaching inn in the High St.

The Erskine Arms 

8 Nov 17

Conwy: Hotel or pub? Well, it describes itself as a pub , so I’ll allow it on the grounds that I allow Scottish hotels that feel “pubby” and it had an enviable real ale selection, and I think it’s more of pub with rooms.

Rhyl: Lovely multi-room traditional local near to the rail and bus station.

Utopia 

13 Oct 17

Birmingham City Centre: “Utopia the Country Bar in the City” I wasn’t seeing what was “country bar” about this at all, and it was a bit questionable about “pub”, but it scraped in.

The Uxbridge Arms 

7 Sep 17

Burntwood, Staffs: Just up the road from the Miner’s Rest and round the corner from The Junction .

The Miner’s Rest

Burntwood, Staffs: Newly refurbished Joules pub, just up the road and on the 10 bus route, so handy.

Bury St Edmunds: We’d been recommended this as one of the very few non-Green King pubs in town.
