I've learnt that the London Hotel on Kensington Road, Southport, will be holding an open mike night every Thursday from 9 pm. The London serves real ale from the Acorn Brewery - Barnsley Bitter and Mild - at reasonable prices. The local CAMRA branch held a meeting there recently. For more details, contact Sue on 0775 404 6827.
The superfluous apostrophe in the sign has already been commented upon!
