"At Christmas I no more desire a rose Than wish a snow in May's new-fangled mirth; But like of each thing that in season grows."

Quote from: thelittlemango on August 18, 2021, 12:11:31 PMSpeaking of Holborn and pub cats, I'm a big fan of The Seven Stars. It's a cosy little place with old theatre posters everywhere and frequented by people who work at the Royal Courts of Justice around the corner, and also has a lovely pub cat that wears a ruff:

Quote from: Kankurette on August 18, 2021, 07:31:43 PMI've seen plenty of pub dogs but not a pub cat. What a beauty!

Landowner is set to demolish it in the autumn, because what Cambridge definitely needs is some 7 storey office blocks.https://www.cambridgeindependent.co.uk/news/craig-bennett-let-s-get-together-and-save-the-flying-pig-pu-9209999/

Quote from: SpiderChrist on August 18, 2021, 07:41:17 PMYeah. Proper shame. Mrs SpiderChrist used to work there. Nice pub, nice people, stitched up by developers and the council.
Quote from: Shoulders?-Stomach! on August 18, 2021, 08:17:56 PMYeah I'd agree. The Castle Hotel deserves a mention alongside them.As Briton's and Peveril are so close it's difficult to think of them other than as a pair.I reckon The New Oxford is a nice enough newer pub in Manchester. Serious number of Belgian ales but the bench seating and the general vibe from the locals is good.
Quote from: FerriswheelBueller on August 18, 2021, 08:21:09 PMThe Closed Shop was my local for years, absolute belter of a pub. If you could get that bay window seat in the front on the left of the door you were absolutely laughing.Uni Arms had that greenhouse bit in it if I'm remembering the right place, that was a very unique little spot to drink in. Might have changed in the intervening decade and a half though...
Quote from: Fr.Bigley on August 18, 2021, 03:37:03 PMOn the contrary, I was part of the leedsbid group and some of the horror stories from management and first hand experience would make your skin crawl. There's a safe space then there's so.ething tantamount to fascism. The horror stories are out there, just look in front of your nose.
Quote from: Shoulders?-Stomach! on August 18, 2021, 09:22:39 PMYes to both. Closed Shop used to take on too many ales on the pumps and not get through them. Sadly the awful pool table has gone and Stancill's refurb has slightly nudged the charm out of the place, albeit the beer is better.Uni Arms greenhouse is bit exactly as you left it.Maybe I am too harsh on both, but there's seriously stiff competition in Sheffield, and once they're admitted someone will pipe up with 'what about the Old Queen's Head'SHEFFIELD BASED POST

Quote from: Shoulders?-Stomach! on August 18, 2021, 10:10:43 PMYep, that's going on the map. Thank you.
