After discovering that our 'Suggest
an Inn' page has not been working properly for a while - we now think
we've worked out why ! Not something we'd done but you try & get the
company concerned to admit it....

This summer has been extremely busy following the last two
years of working on the purchase of the Emmerdale Pub - The Woolpack in
West Yorkshire. The inn is now up for sale and interested parties should
view the details here
Although there's not been many updates to the news page,
we have been extensively out & about visiting establishments - The
Inn - see the column on the right ! will get added shortly along with
a few other establishments. We've also added a page on Pub Signs as we've
got lots of photos of 'em ! We've also added a link on that page to Graeme
Robbins website - Take a look, a very talented artist and we don't
mean of the drinking variety - although he may be that as well !.
The Fat Badgers are pleased to announce that we have a new
Badger in our Clan - Fat Badger Paul
was born early in his life to proud parents - some years ago. Badger Paul
has visited in excess of 1300 UK inns and tasted the wares in each &
every one of them. This is why we can't understand a word he's saying.
Badger Paul likes a drop of Whisky but he also likes his ale - Well he
would say that, he brews the stuff. If you fancy trying the beer that Paul
produces, you should take a holiday on Islay and pay a visit to his
you are thinking of paying a visit why not email Fat
Badger Kilo and ask for a lift in his sports car as he's intending to
visit sometime in the near future. You will probably have to be young,
female, pretty AND slim to get him to agree to take you all the way up to
Scotland as last time he gave anyone a lift around the Highlands, it was a
Welshman called Gareth and Badger Kilo didn't fancy him in the slightest.
thought it was about time we updated the news page as we've been told off
for getting one of the symbols wrong for one of the pubs listed. Many
apologies to all concerned, it is difficult to try & keep on top of an
ever changing world of drinking establishments and we do rely on others
keeping us informed.
We have received a bucket load of recommendations in
recent months and much as we'd like to add them all, we do try to pay each
establishment a visit before doing so.
Many of the Fat Badgers hibernate in Ski resorts in the
Winter so as usual, we've been active in other departments. A number of
establishments have been added to the database and will get added to the
main site in the near future.
We have also been spending some time on preparing our
sister site www.badgersbritain.co.uk
although we're not entirely sure where we're going with it but we're
always open to ideas !
