I disapprove of even noticing celebrities in pubs – not that either Sean Hughes or Paul Morley can be described as celebrities in any usual sense of the word. And as has probably been mentioned here before – the Hogshead is the chain pub I most approve of. Good beer pretty well kept, spacious but not barn like. I could do without them moving more sofas in (the sofa law in pubs is simple – red, leather) but in general the atmosphere works. Kate’s chain pub hell may well be more to do with her not drinking. Hah!
