Strawberry Gardens, Fleetwood

Visited to see the mighty U's narrowly lose 4-0! Lovely pub, great range of ales with a discount for CAMRA members, friendly helpful bar staff, decent pub food, and even better the great man himself came out to greet us and we had our photo taken with him.
8.5/10

The Hillgrove Porter Stores, Bristol

Marvellous! My first ever visit to the Hillgrove accompanied by Mrs Monk and our friends who are extremely lucky to live 10 minutes away. My kind of pub. The beer was excellent as was the range. The Dawkins Bristol Best was superb, also tried the RCH Steam and the Goffs Dark Knight. All good but far and away the best was the Best! Even Mrs Monk liked it. Wish I lived 10 minutes away. 9/10

Holborn Whippet, Camden

Given its location I was pleasantly surprised by this pub. Good selection of ales, reasonably priced for the area, £3.20 for the Redemption session pale for example. The 7 of us turned a corner of WC1 into Colchester. We mostly stuck to the Redemption, the Morhop?, hazy and floral, and the amber ale from Bristol. I can imagine it being horrendously packed and noisy on a wet, cold night when you can't spill out to the pavement, but for a summer evening it was pretty good. The stairs to the toilets as one reviewer commented are winding but no worse than those in the Harp, and the gents was reasonably clean and at least had soap in the dispensers even if the hand drier didn't work. Will definitely go again as it seemed very convenient for all of us, good range of ale, good pricing and pretty competent staff. Solid 7/10
