To celebrate St David's Day (March 1st), here are some Welsh pump clips from the St David's Day Real Ale Festival.

Sad Lady at Pub

Scene from the Victoria Inn in Mumbles,Swansea. Maybe she was sad because they didn't have her favorite beer on? This is a great pub and the landlady is lovely. Definitely worth a stop if you are in Mumbles and right around the corner from my favorite Mumbles pub the Park Inn. The pub also features a Victorian well inside.

A pint of Tomos Watkin's Worms Head Ale at the Helvetia Bar inside the Worms Head Hotel in Rhossili, Swansea.

A lone drinker at the Lincoln Lounge, King's Cross, London. I loved the mural that you can see behind him. You can read a short review of the pub here.

Five good selections from one of my favorite local bars. Featuring a local beer, Genny Cream Ale, as well as a beer most of us wait all year for...Nugget Nectar. At Acme on Saturdays every draft, bottle and well is 2 for 1. Can't beat that deal.

The Crown Tavern, an old Victorian pub located in Clerkenwell, London serves an excellent, albeit pricey, selection of continental beers and ciders. This is where I had a bottle of Worthington White Shield that I posted a few weeks ago.

A selection of lager pumps at Copa of Cardiff, a continental bar located in the heart of the city.

A weathered mosaic sign outside the Fox and Anchor pub in Clerkenwell, London. The exterior of the pub contains carved gargolyes and Royal Doulton tiles designed by the same man who did Harrods Food Hall. Angela Cobban, a writer for the Kiwi Collection's online luxury magazine, describes the pub as 'a strong contender for the world's best English pub'. You can expect more photos of the pub in the future.

This shot of a Wort Collection Monitor (I think that's what it's called) was taken during a tour of the Ringwood Brewery in Ringwood, Hampshire, England.

There isn't any beer in this photo (apart from Red Stripe) but I couldn't resist taking a shot of the excellent collection of ciders on tap at the Green Man in London. This was just a small selection of the ciders on offer.
