My roving reporter Steve has sent me a text to say that the famous Vernon pub in Dale Street, Liverpool, has reopened with 6 handpumps after a long closure. There were five beers on offer when he visited: Adnams, Brains Rev. James, Skinners Cornish Knocker, Baltic Fleet Wapping and Baltic Fleet stout. His verdict: well worth a visit. It's about 5 minutes walk from Moorfields Station.
