Reasons to buy newspapers - or at least link to them

Tomorrow The Guardian travel section is running a selection of perfect pubs to visit between Christmas and New Year, that slow, out-of-time, strange week when you have no idea what day it is and can just sit by a pub fire with a book and the dog all day if you want to. They asked me for my suggestion, and it's this pub below - check the newspaper tomorrow (Saturday) to find out where it is, and I'll see you there lunch time on Boxing Day.

Also, today the Daily Express has a round-up of best drinks books of the year, in which they refer to Hops & Glory as "one of the drink books of the year" funnily enough. The value of those remaining copies continues to rise...

Bugger, I can't sell my copy of Hops and Glory. Somebody went and wrote "To Woolpack Dave" inside it. If only he had put just "To Dave" there are loads of Daves.......

It's a shame that Jonny B Goode (or whoever subbed his piece) felt the need to put (and beer) in brackets in the sub-head, as if it were some kind of afterthought. Then again...

I see The Grauniad ran true to form, and tidied up your piece with a blunt spoon in the online version.

I quite enjoyed the inclusion of the Hermit's Cave in Camberwell. I used to go in a lot - a decent enough pint, good plain food served generously...
