Doom Bar is ok of there’s nothing much else available but assuming that the Ruddles was their Best Bitter (aka Blue) why would you not just choose that?
I’d take County over Doom Bar too.


I'd take Batemans over any of them

Who says "One swallow doesn't make a summer"


Think summer, think customers sipping pints with friends and family long into the light-filled evenings. And Batemans have the perfect summer pint to serve them with. Summer Swallow is blended with a variety of hops, making it a crisp, dry, refreshing pale ale with a lemon-fresh finish.

I won’t argue with that.

Gotta remember this is dahn sahf.

Real ales - Doom Bar predominates and what I would normally have, Abbot Ale a reasonably accceptable alternative , the several beers you guys mention are not on the menu

Lucky lucky man!

Bateman’s is rarely on offer up here, but I did have a very good day of drinking it on a poker weekend in a sports club in Lincoln a year or so back.

You mustn't be searching for decent pubs Glenn. TTL (Don't mind if I do) is widely available south of Watford Gap. Excellent beer when well kept etc etc

I haven't seen or tried Batemans yet, but typhoon's description suggests that it's not one for my palate. Doom Bar, however, is something akin to Double Diamond in my book: never knowingly supped.

However, my personal nectar is London Pride, which is just one of Fullers' offerings. Not sure how far north its distribution reaches, though, so our Northern friends might not know what they're missing. Tetley's Bitter was a great favourite of mine, but it's very hard to find these days

Cheers chaps!

Haha, Double Diamond was my Grandad's tipple at his servicemen's club donkeys years ago, truly dreadful.

Metnioned Doom Bar as a Wetherspoon's staple, if I'm in a normal pub then yes, London Pride, when well kept, is just lovely and a first choice for me. Agree on Tetley's too but don't see it much either these days

Pride is usually flat and expensive, I suppose thats what Southerners prefer

Tried to find a London Pride ad, they were great too, but London Pride has a complete new meaning these days which swamps google Search.

I can't argue about it being expensive - £5.40 in my local is at the bottom end of the scale, close to £6.50 in the smoke - but you will only find it flat in public houses where it isn't well kept and served.

Real beer (as opposed to lagers) is, in the end, a matter of the supper's taste - assuming the publican keeps his pipes clean.

My oh my, we're wittering like a bunch of old farts with cloth caps, pipes and fairisle jumpers......
