Subject: RE: New Year's Day session, Stanstead Abbott
Well, I drink both real cider and real ale if I can get them (not mixed together though - yuk!). Real cider is a bit difficult to find in some parts of the country, including the Herts/Beds area, but there are a few pubs around that sell it if you know where to find them.

Doesn't the pub mind if you drink your own bottles of ale instead of buying theirs (even if they don't have anything worth drinking, e.g. when they only sell keg rubbish)?

Talking about Greene King, there's a pub in Berkshire (Wallingford I think - or was it Wantage?) that changed hands. The new owners threw out the GK beers and got some better stuff in, and put up a large banner outside it saying "Guaranteed No Greene King Beer" or words to that effect. This attracts people in, as you can understand. I drove past it not long ago, before I knew the reason for the banner.
