It’s that time of year when ‘pub awards’ start to be handed out. Will the Freaky Trigger collective be giving a pub award? Yes they will, just as soon as we think of a sufficiently preposterous scientific way of judging it. However, some names are already jostling for space in the frame. One of them is the Shakespeare’s Head in Islington, hymned on this publog recently. We’re delighted to report that this particular boozer has just boosted its chances of getting our award in dramatic fashion.
