Sunderland pub of the year 2018

If more people like the Dolphin and get in there regularly, giving it enough of a sense of community for people to go out of their way to vote for it, surely that qualifies it as a good pub?
Eggzackerly.

Just because it doesn't sell Ringwoods Gusset Ale at £5 a pint, doesn't exclude it from being good.
 
I wouldn't like. Used to drink in a few of them.
You’ve changed though. They’d be able to sense your disdain for them and give you a right good fisting.

The Dolphin sells actual Gusset Juice, better know Stones Bitter tbf.

Aye, what you've done there is take the name of a proper snide brewery you've seen on sale in Asda, and twinned with that awful joke from here about any decent beer tasting of someone's gusset and combined them. Brilliant stuff.

Imagine thinking Ringwood is a beer for "craft ale wankers", whatever that is.

Who've you been speaking to?

When there's a vote, the one with the most vote tends to win :lol:
Aye, but it makes a mockery of the award to suggest the winner is the best pub in Sunderland. It would have far more credence if each establishment was visited by industry experts or whatever to vote on each place. It just seems like such a downmarket award. Why can't we think big and give pubs a more worthwhile award to aim for to up their game?

I was a member of CAMRA for years, it's full of self important pretentious wankers, so I know what I'm taking about.
 
Always creating me. They'd kick me out for creating arl owa the bar.
Is it too much to ask for you to create privately in the toilet?

What are the benefits of being a member of Camra? Other than a smug sense of self importance and a smelly cardigan?
Free entry and queue jumps at Camra beer festivals. Problematic as they serve direct from the cask and have poor temperature control in those venues so the beer is always sub par.

Bafana bafana juice isn't hard to clean up in my experience.

Beards (and not just the blokes), BO, socks and sandals combo.
When they stopped the Wetherspoons vouchers, I bailed.
:lol::lol: stop it.

A total waste of time, them.
 
what more do you want than a smug sense of self importance ffs
I walked right into that one to be fair.

Camra one’s are.

IMBC, CBC and BE are ace. Crafty as fuck iirc.
They're all shit. Taking something as good as beer, removing from the pub, putting in a exhibition centre or in a marquee, huge queues and tiny little glasses to drink it out of.

I always end up absolutely fucked as well having had a shit time and always spend much more than I would have in a boozer.

On the subject of nicked goods remember Rosies Tavern where the cinema is?
Lad came in selling work boots, battery drills, deodorant, razers n fecking flower/veg seeds.:lol:
An away fan threw a firework through the door 25 year back n my ears are still ringing.:lol:

Pre match was brilliant as a young un then!

Not really any other time you can have stuff from that many breweries in one place though.

Beaverken can fuck off now though.
