An ornate sign above the entrance to The Feathers in St James's, London. The pub is a stone's throw from New Scotland Yard and around a few corners from Buckingham Palace. The building in the reflection is the headquarters of the London Underground.

Ye Olde Mitre is a well known pub located in the centre of London. Hidden down a small alleyway, until relatively recently the pub fell under the jurisdiction of Cambridge, a city 60 miles away. This was due to the pub being located on land that was owned by the Bishop of Ely (Cambridge). The pub is dated 1546 but the current building is from 1772. You can read a review of the pub at Travels with Beer.

This green ale from Stonehenge is always popular when it's brewed between February and April and it was no exception when it was on sale at the Maltings Beer Festival. This half pint was the last one of the festival.

Yes we've already featured the glory that is Tripel Karmeliet on Beer Lens before. Having another glass of it recently, I was compelled to take this shot to show off both the nicely done logo and what a glass of this fantastic beer looks like when the head settles.

Even my cat loves a Hooky!

Everyone loves a Hook Norton beer...even my cat. She loves to eat all my favourite foods so it's really no surprise that she is showing interest in one of my favourite breweries. This was a Hook Norton Double Stout. Unfortunately I had to pay highly inflated prices to get this beer here in the states.

This Saloon Bar sign is on the exterior of the extravagently decorated Black Friar pub in London. You can view more photos and read a review on Travels with Beer.

More pubs need their own stained glass signs like this one that was located above the doorway of the Woodin's Shades pub in London.

This is the view from the remote Wasdale Head Inn in Cumbria, England. It has to be the best beer garden that I've ever seen. The area has the tallest mountain in England, the deepest lake in England and the smallest church in England. It's also widely regarded as being the birthplace of British climbing. Despite it being very remote, the pub is extremely popular. You can read a review of the pub and view more photos on Travels with Beer.

Cadbury Creme Eggs and beer. A perfect combination? The photo was taken at the excellent Wheatsheaf Inn in Lorton, Cumbria. Great beer, food and they have their own campsite.
