500 Pubs since 19 January 2009   Leave a comment

Note…due to a miscount, #500 on this log was actually #502…see corrective notes at Yorkshire Grey (London) and Wetherspoons (Milton Keynes).

This is a ridiculous number of pubs, considering some I stay at for hours, and some I return to multiple to many times but they only count once on the list.  Oh, well, here’s some trivia:

Of the 500 I have visited:

24 Red Lions

9 White Horses

8 Chequers and White Harts

7 King’s Arms, Queen’s Heads and Ploughs   (9 if you include Plough and Harrow and the Plough Inn)

6 Crowns, Bell Inn (or Bell Hotel or just the Bell)

5 Black Horses, Green Mans, Swans

4 Black Bulls, Greyhounds, Princes of Wales, Rose and Crowns,  Royal Oaks,  Three Horseshoeses, Wheatsheaf’s, and Castles (or Castle Inns)

3 each of The Bull Inn, The Carpenter’s Arms, The Cherry Tree, The Duke of Wellington, The Five Bells, The Grapes, The Horse and Groom, The King’s Head, The Mitre, The Six Bells, The Unicorn, The Waggon and Horses, and The White Lion

and 2 of The Anchor, The Blue Lion, The Cock, The Corner House, The Cow, The Cricketers, The Cross Keys, The Dog and Duck, The Fountain, The Hobgoblin, The Lion, The Railway Tavern, The Ship, The Tally Ho, The Travellers’ Rest, The White House, and The Woodstock Arms

______________________________________

There have been a number of closed pubs, some of which have reopened or are in the process of reopening.  Some others have been staffed by such flaming cunts and assholes that I just considered them closed.  Regardless, if I called it closed at the time I went through or past, and then grabbed a can of beer somewhere and brought it over to enjoy on the premises it got counted.  There were 25 such pubs in the list so far (5 %) and I will strive to keep that number below 2% from now on.  Those so far (with links to the entry) were:

The Falcon Huntingdon    Cambridgeshire
The Rose and Crown Cambridge    Cambridgeshire
The Woodstock Arms Oxford    Oxfordshire
Marlborough House Oxford    Oxfordshire
The Black Horse Dry Drayton    Cambridgeshire
The Duke of Argyle Cambridge    Cambridgeshire
The Earl Grey Cambridge    Cambridgeshire
The Fenman King’s Lynn    Norfolk
The Five Bells Cambridge    Cambridgeshire
The Fox and Hound Oxford    Oxfordshire
The Graduate Cambridge    Cambridgeshire
The Hand and Racquet Covent Garden    London
The New Brunswick Highgate    London
The Oddfellows Arms Aylesbury    Buckinghamshire
The Old Orleans Cambridge    Cambridgeshire
The Prince of Wales Cambridge    Cambridgeshire
The Queen’s Head Sawston    Cambridgeshire
The Swan Cambridge    Cambridgeshire
The Woolpack Sawston    Cambridgeshire
The Locomotive Cambridge    Cambridgeshire
The Little Rose Haslingfield    Cambridgeshire
The White Horse Sawston    Cambridgeshire
The Jericho Tavern Oxford    Oxfordshire
The Fish and Duck Cambridge    Cambridgeshire
The Lion and Lamb Milton    Cambridgeshire

Finally, because the full breakdown could take awhile, I’ll just list the number of pubs hit by county (or London):

Cambridgeshire    217
Oxfordshire    170
London    28
Buckinghamshire    20
Suffolk    19
