Difford's Guide exists for you and so we want you to be part of it. We value your thoughts, ideas and opinions and we'd very much like you to express these in the "Comment" areas on this website.
To comment you'll need to be registered and logged in. Registration is easy, just requiring your name, email address and date of birth to ensure you are of legal drinking age. To register or sign in, please click "My Account"/"Log in" at the top right corner of your screen. We also ask that you let us know if you're a fellow drinks industry professional.
Please ensure your comments are constructive and don't cause offence to other readers. Be nice! We'd also like to draw your attention to the following.
We reserve the right to delete comments and/or to ban users without notification or explanation.
If you've posted a comment that on reflection (perhaps on the morning after) you decide is best deleted, just click "delete" (on the right under your comment) and if you're logged in it will disappear. Please be aware, there's no way to restore a comment once deleted, and deleting also deletes all associated replies.
We like to hang out in bars that have a friendly welcoming unpretentious environment and so we want Difford's Guide to have the same vibe. Hence, comments we consider personal attacks, insulting, racist, sexist, homophobic, defamatory, malicious, threatening, misleading or generally offensive or in bad taste will be deleted.
Please also refrain from posting content which could be viewed as being indecent, obscene or of a sexual nature.
The users (and their IP addresses) behind such comments will be barred.
If you consider a comment goes too far or could be considered hate-speech (see above), then please bring it to our attention by clicking "Report" below the comment.

Delay in your comment appearing
Our software automatically delays comments for a short period to allow moderation.
