Your favourite 'vaping' pub
As many of you know, my local is The Anglers Rest in Wombwell.

Why?

It is a small traditional pub that has many regulars but few 'visitors'. When I first 'visited' to the pub around 2 and a half years ago, I spoke to the landlady and asked if I could use my ecig and she said yes Smiling

After a handful of visits, the regulars upgraded me from a 'visitor' to one of them and I have not looked back since.

As well as serving excellent local cask ales and ciders, The Anglers is a community pub. Many of the regulars are known by nicknames which reflect their jobs - such as Driver, Plumber and Paint pot and they help each other out for no, or little financial gain.

We talk about owt, have a laugh at each other's expense, join in the myriad of competitions that the pub organises and generally have a good time.

I'm currently involved in the 'Children's chess club' where 4 chess novices try and pit their wits against each other and try to win before taking all the pieces off the board - something easier said than done! The recent pool ladder tournament was won by Foxy who beat Spike to the top spot, with Simone bringing up the rear.

Resident vapers were zero when I first went to The Anglers but now both Simone, the landlady and her sister Jennie vape along with Aunty Myra (Carrie) and myself. The pub also enjoys visits from other vapers in the area and has been the willing Guinea Pig for all of CAM-VIP's initiatives.

It is a top little boozer and well worth a visit if you are in or travelling through South Yorkshire.

What is your favourite vaping pub and why??

Russell

RE: Your favourite 'vaping' pub
Harkers in york, Its a chain pub but the beers great good food decent cocktails its comfortable, a place I can work as welll as relax bar staff are awesome. the manager actually fought for vapers rights when I queried a ban I was told about by a staff member even ringing me personally to discuss the response and pushing for a policy at area level saying vaping was fine in their chain.

plus I have a mate on the bar and when its quiet you can sit and chat with the barstaff they will be honest give beer reviews drink advice and the lot.

despite sounding like a gay bar, it isnt
great real ale pub, frequent live bands, prices a little bit steep, but passable pints around 3 pounds
really god friends with the bar staff. despite the torrent of abuse i give them, just love to sit at the bar having a smoke and a pint, nothing better

RE: Your favourite 'vaping' pub
I do most of my drinking in Manchester's Canal Street (yes, the gay village - yes I am gay Smiling) and my favourite bar is the Molly House, hidden away on Richmond Street. They have a good selection of cask ale including a range from Beartown Brewery which is a micro-brewery based just down the road from me in Stockport. They also usualy have two or three guest beers as well. And they serve their ale in proper mugs with a handle.

Last week I asked if it was okay to vape inside and they said yes. So I was happily sat there vaping away when suddenly one of the other bar staff came lurching over to my table with a panicked look on his face. Then when he saw what I was holding he relaxed and said "Oh, it's one of those!" I think he'd seen the vapour and thought I was smoking.
