      There are some great pubs in St Albans. I was backpacking in Oz with 2 blokes from there in the 90s (Nobby and Alan) and i used to visit them when i got back.

      The worst pub I've ever been to was called The Fiddle.

      It really was a vile inn.

      This was what we considered our local, the Red Lion in Avebury, a magnificent place. We don't really go to pubs over here as they are all just bars. I like to go for a drink and chat with friends.
