I don't mind either of these locations. I'm out most evenings and for green
reasons get the bus up the hill, and walk back for waist reasons.  The Guild
Ford Arms became much more attractive from my perspective when indoor
smoking was outlawed.  Don't ever suggest the Cumberland for a Friday
evening. Its almost standing room only. I go to the Freelancers Meetup
there  every fortnight.
