Friends and links


Firstly, I'd like to direct you to my new fangled Flickr account - or flick the letter "r" as I prefer to call it. Here you will find pics of pubs that aren't on my blog, or other pics, which may or may not interest you. Find me at the following link :

So, back to other matters, over the years planning trips to pubs around the UK (and further afield) I have met some great people, and visited some fantastic places. Notwithstanding the irreplacable source of word of mouth, internet sites have been and still are essential to planning and reveiwing exploits.

In recognition of which, below are a few links you might find useful. Please note that there is no numerical representation of quality  :

1. Find details of real ale pubs in towns and cities with league football clubs at

2. Sheffield and perhap's Yorkshire's best range of draught hand-pulled real ale and bottle conditioned beers to take away at :

3. View the definitive list of Britain's unspoilt pub interiors at

4. A regional version of the same :

5. Find beer news and blogs at:

6. Find out about a moaning minnie travelling round Crete, at :

7. Search an up to date list of UK breweries at :

8. Not exactly a positive set of pics but a campaigning page about and opposed to pub closures :

9. Another beer blog! - I concede that this well established tome may be a risky link to post, the content is good and its an entertaining read overall, but on my few visits its mainly been bottled beer reviews, which I almost never do. Take a look at an Irishman's beer odyssey at

10. The finest range of records as well as vintage and retro clothing in Sheffield. Find out where and what it is and what they can offer at :
LP records and vintage-retro clothing

11. Blogs ahoy! Slipping under my radar only due to not paying attention enough, Steve the beermiester, my first ever posted link, also has a blog. See what he and others (its a collaboration it seeems) are up to at :

12. Painter, illustrator, grower of hair, general artist (literal) Mr C M Cavill is a prolific poster of his work on Flick the letter r. And now he has a blog as well : cloudpine451 . Meanwhile, do find a few moments to have a look at his stream at Cloudpine on Flickr

13. The quintessential personal list of unspoilt pubs at classic basic unspoilt pubs of Great Britain

14. A bit more of the excellent Cloudpine on his new blog - see it here! Cloudpine451

15. Even better than Wee Beefys Travels (ahem). Barraharri travels the world,or at least part of it : Overasia

Finally, some brewery and pub links :

Meanwhile, I will try and find more sources of info about beer and pubs and transport and breweries to help provide articles for your enjoyment covering Sheffield and further afield.
