    Personally, having friends who've tested positive and are fine I'm in the unconcerned group. Not that I'm oblivious, or think nothing ever happened Ė I just accept that life brings risks.

    I'm of the opinion that the UK's approach to dealing with the virus will ultimately cause more harm to the population's long term health than the virus itself, through poverty, bankruptcy, mental health, lack of education, lack of regular exercise, missed and cancelled medical procedures, and so on.

    So when the pubs open, I'll be joining some friends for a pint. Because if we don't the pubs won't be in business when the rest of the nation wants to go for a Christmas drink.

    Cheers.
    It's partly a location thing for me - working from home until at least September - I am not inclined to travel an hour to get into a city (and given I have no car have no way to get there). I'm not inclined to go to the pubs because it all looks pretty grim to me.

The quiet times too. Sigh . . .


    Is that the Victoria in Durham?

    My (very) local opens on Saturday, had a word with pub manager and Iím very worried about not seeming to have any idea on what to do.

    The owner (never seen him) has given no guidance. Really want to support the pub and her but its not easy... might go suss it out on Friday to see whatís been done but not expecting much :(

    More of a brassy gold. Up a steep hill sounds like either the Garden House or the Woodman







    Sigh . . .

    a Pub further on which the barmaid ( a real character ) told us was ok and it was, is/was a Sam Smiths Pub ?

    That's the Old Elm Tree. Sounds like you walked up Crossgate to get there, then forked to the right along Allergate, which would indeed put the Colpitts on your left. Great pint of Smith's Old Brewery bitter, still about £2.10/20 a pint. The Colpitts and the Vic are the best two pubs in town, albeit each on opposite edges of the city. Mind you it's a small city!

    As for us, our local will be open and as far as I can make out it'll be very busy - I won't be there, It'll take more than our PM to convince me that with a bit of common sense 'all will be well'.
    I packed in boozing decades ago!!

    When I was sixteen, I used to clean the windows at the Pitsmoor, Also at the Pitsmoor WMC!!

    I'll bet someone on here has been in this pub!, When the vid first appeared it was identified quite quickly, Can't recall where it was though, Maybe somewhere in Donny!
