The Hop, Leeds

Disappointing and a sign that a good range of beer alone - this time from the estimable Ossett brewery - is not always enough. The interior is cavernous and very much like a chain pub (which this is given that there is a similar joint in nearby Saltaire), the pizza toppings sound ill thought out and an attempt to add character by putting pics of local musicians on the walls give the place the feel of a temple to landfill indie (The Cribs, Kaiser Chiefs).

The Vine, West Bromwich

A legendary pre-match watering hole and there is certainly bags of character. The shtick is Indian food of high quality (the Chicken Tikka kebabs are divine) and while the ale selection is very limited, the Batham's Gold was in great condition and went down well. The one snag is how ludicrously busy the place is while veggie options, usually available, were absent on this visit. Service can also be brusque but there is an irony in seeing punters some of whom will have voted Leave in their droves tucking into the fruits of multicultural Britain with gusto. Lord knows how many people come here away from match day.

Saltaire Brewery Tap, Shipley

Ignore Google Maps and take the canal towpath to access this place within a 10 minute walk of Shipley station. Saltaire have a quality range and their typically divine Triple Chocoholic was as superb as you would expect. A Citra was also in great condition while you can buy wares too. The brewery has done something of a rebrand and this is akin to that undergone by Titanic. They appear to be aiming big so let's hope the character remains.
