As reported in this week's Hereford Times, The Ewe and Lamb in Kington takes great pride in having the grumpiest landlord in Herefordshire.
Know of any grumpier local landlords or are there even any particularly jolly ones you think we should know about? Let us know in the usual way...

Confusion at The Wye Inn
Last night the entire HM Pub Guide Team (along with their partners and children) decided to go out for a meal to celebrate Mr M's birthday. We decided to go to The Wye Inn as it is close and has a large play area for the kids. However, our evening was ruined by the fact that after ordering a round of drinks, and consulting the menu, we went to order food- only to be told that the kitchen was closed. There were no notices to say this, in fact the opposite was the case- whilst walking through the car park there were 2 notice boards stating the restaurant opening times. Upon sitting at the tables, menus were placed all around and there was salt and vinegar pots on every table. I don't so much mind the fact that the kitchen was closed, it's just the underhand way they went about pretending that nothing was different to normal. So I'm sorry to say that I will be not entering the premises for a few months in protest, I might not even go back there till we have to (in a year or so) re-review it! Harsh words I know, but they really p*#@ed me off- it's up to you to make your own minds up.

2010 Election manifestos
The three main party have now published their manifestos. I’ve had a look at what they say about how they would deal with alcohol issues. The following are direct quotes from each of the manifestos. As you will see there is a focus on treatment and criminal justice interventions with very little emphasis on education or prevention. Although I would advise against basing your voting preference solely on these issues.
