The Grove, Camberwell Grove

This pub is justly billed here as closed, but as a result of fire damage.

It's shrouded in scaffolding, and work is well under way. As to whether it will re-open as a pub, we'll have to wait and see

I wonder what ever became of The Crazy World Of Arthur Brown?

The William The IV, Halifax

It's still warm and still welcoming. The Tetley's - the only ale - was in fine form, and I don't know about you, but I'd rather that, than half-a-dozen variations on vinegar any day.

One of the tables in the lounge was rickety. Like, I mean, it was the furniture equivalent of one those music hall acts, who used to lock their hooked heels into the floor and then lean back-and-forth, or side-to-side, at impossible angles.

So it's six for the pub and ale, but have another for the table. ("I thank you", I think it said.)

This is now the Old Market Tavern, and it has a pleasingly-restored historic exterior, by Nicholsons.

At 1800 on a Friday evening however, all the hand-pulled ales were off, a sign informing us that this was by dint of "lines cleansing". Yes, at 1800, on a Friday.

So four-out-of ten for the frontage it is, then.

We moved on to the Glass Works for a couple, before Van Morrison at St. David's Hall. Happily, he and his outstanding musicians were all superb.

He didn't ask about The Old Market.
