The summer’s coming heatwave* (*not guaranteed)means plenty of opportunities for a BBQ: here’s how to keep things interesting
The Bull, Highgate, London
When Dan Fox left the legendary White Horse in Parsons Green to open his own venture he was always going to be watched closely. And the good news is that he hasn't disappointed.
His new pub, The Bull, is home to the fledgling London Brewing Company, which is a small two and a half barrel plant hidden at the back of the pub. The Bull's two most notable brews are the house bitter, Beer Street, a suppable session ale with a light and enjoyable straw-like bitterness; and the Galena Red, a feisty brew with bucket-loads of spicy orange notes.
The pub also has a good selection of world beers and seasonal food with a bit of an American diner twist. Look out for 'Wings Wednesday' in particular, 10 for a fiver of the most morish chickeny delights around!

Fat Cat in Sheffield. So good you find their beers in major supermarkets.
This article is bone idle journalism. What did you do look through Yell for london?
good on ya pal, guess what i already do brew my own. Dont,t care what the goverment says you aint taking my pint away from me, i deserve it. I work dam hard for it, ill say that again i work dam hard for my money. Not everyone wants to go silly cycling and jogging through the town centre just to show off. Some of us want to relax and enjoy life at a steady pace and that is good enough a life for us, so cheers to the drinkers.
I love a good quality pint, so do me pals and lasses. Great company and great conversation also, none of that call centre rubbish and office crap. Just a good conversation amongst friends and good laughs all round, god bless ya.
there is to many do gooders in this country, time to get the pubs open again and have some normal conversation and good times. None of this false rubbish we see everywhere, that aint living at all, that is living like you are on your nerves edge. We need good pubs and good times back and i bet you it does come back, in fact i know it will come back. As we have learnt to many people are obsessed with money you have gone mad with money it has consumed you completely and sent you right off the rails. Good thing i saw what labour was going to do to the credit system, hey hey eyyyy labour you did,nt ge me, ((((((( sticking me tongue out ))))),,,, yep thats right some of us know when to stear clear of idiots like you.
Raise ya pint for the strength of the good honest Englishman and women god bless ya, yep im poor, yep im havent got a lot in me pockets, but by hook or by crook im going to live my life in a good old kness style, if you want ot send the world in depths of doom get on with it, because no matter what i say or other good people, you will never listen what so every.
Cheers to all teh drinkers and good common folk who do all the hard graft and back breaking work, with out us they would be nothing.
if you are in glasgow try Brew Dog opposite the kelvingrove art gallery.
nae wishy washy beer in in there. they brew their own and have some brilliant guest ales from all over the world.
there are also in aberdeen and edinburgh and plan to open in leeds.
On the contrary....tolerance and good will very much my attitude! It's just I much prefer visiting pubs and restaurants for a good night and not coming home stinking of stale second hand smoke and with a sore throat. I do not miss the days of smokey pubs I'm afraid. Commonsense says the preference of the minority should not be permitted to impact on the comfort and health of the majority.
That said... happy christmas!
