I heard you opened a pub or eatery. What's it called?

What ales do you serve?

From left to right as you look at the bar:

Coming Soon (whenever last two go):


The Phoenix

Really nice food

We serve really nice ales


Free the Paedos


my pub would be called Soor Plooms and it would only serve sours and… soor plooms… OR alternatively just sour beers and plum based foods.

Don’t all come rushing in at once!!!


The Growers of Mushrooms.

All the beers have really lurid pictures on the taps, and names like “witches hat” and “pungent effluents” and “midnight ritual”. But there’s also a few cheap and pissy American lagers, and a few crisp and refreshing Spanish ones, because that’s what I drink.

There’s loads of snugs and booths and nooks and crannies and what have you, making the place feel cavernous yet cosy. The music is amazing and there’s live bands now and then. The place is definitely haunted and someone gives tarot readings in the corner (me). There’s a huge gnarly oak in the beer garden that people talk about like it’s an old regular. “Old Green Man” they call it.

There’s a hand of glory in the corner that nobody’s allowed to touch.

just rhubarb flavoured stuff


I have to say Bermuda Joe’s is one of the worst beers I’ve ever had.

Guinness Extra Cold
John Smiths


A friend and I have considered opening a micropub in Caterham as there’s only one pub and there’s a definite market for it.

We’d probably just call it “The Bourne”, based on a historic underground river that runs underground.

The food would involve vast mountains of melted cheese in various forms. The drinks would be flavoured gins and cocktails that don’t require a small mortgage. Beer would not be on sale. Lots of comfy seats, music not too loud. Lots of friendly cats.

Will come back to you on the name.

Edit: and there’ll be bowls of chocolate fruit cremes on every table.

Wok Au Van.

It’s a mobile pop-up French-east-Asian fusion place.

pub: director’s cut

house ale: the saucy brewer (made this up)

house wine: fuck off m9

house burger: the DOMINATOR

Yeah it doesn’t appeal. “With a pineapple twist” :question: No thanks! None of our regulars will drink it. Bet all 88 pints are people going “let’s have a taste” and nothing else.

Fuck me I need a pint!

I like my tropical beers (see the beer wanker thread) and I saw this is whats normally a really good pub in Carshalton, but I didn’t realise it was Green King.

It just tasted like a Greene King beer, where the’ve lobbed a couple of bananas and a pineapple in the cask, and left it.

Bleurrrrgh. Soon as we whack it on the pump I’ll report back. Sounds awful tbh,but they thrust these things upon us. Hate the stupid pump label too.
