My two favs are Waitrose feta and caramalised onion and Tesco garlic king prawn, bloody gorgeous them.

Come to the East, where you can't find anything except Co-Ops and Greene King pubs.

Oh man, Greene King make some of the worst beer known to man. Their IPA takes the crown from Watneys Red Barrel (for the older patrons of this establishment) as the most insipid ale in the country.

Old pub joke, from when I was a barman (when I was 19): Don't take the piss out of Watneys, it needs all the flavour it can get!

:D

I like a bit of beer history, and part of me would like to have tried Watney's just to say I had. Knowing the state of Greene King's bottom-shelf stuff, though, this may be another exercise in masochism.

I'd say that everything worked out fine on the whole though.
