The new edition arrived today and I quickly rushed to check the Merseyside changes where I found 17 pubs removed, and 17 added.
Perhaps the most shocking change is the removal of the Ship and Mitre, but to be honest the last pint I had in there, a couple of weeks ago, was somewhat mediocre, so perhaps they had it coming.
Those who like a bit of variation in their pubs will be disappointed to learn that no less than six of the new entries are Wetherspoon's branches. Personally I'm quite a 'Spoons fan, but we all know what to expect in one so I sometimes think it's a bit of a waste of space describing them in the book.
Anyway, as I say every year, for full details you'll have to buy the book.
