Pub Walk No 8 – Crookes to Broomhill – this is one of my favourite walks, you can do this in a evening as I have done recently, catch the 52 bus to Crookes and start in Punchbowl and walk down to Broomhill where there are 6 more pubs and then finish off at University Arms.

This walk is one of my favourites, starting at Punchbowl at Crookes and walking down to Broomhill and ending up at University Arms and then the tram home.
If you click on the pub names it will take you to my website and their page with more details.
Pub 1 – Punchbowl – this is a Greene King pub and you will get a few of their ales in there, a total of 8 hand pumps and also they serve pizzas in the pub so the smell can be very nice, plenty of seating area and you can get here by the 52 bus.
Pub 2 – The Ball – This is a Greene King pub but there are 14 ale pumps and you do get a great variety of ales, usually they do themed ales, eg christmas etc etc. Serves food and loads of seating area and always a busy pub when I go into it, shows a lot of sport on their tv screens scattered around the pub.
Pub 3 – Old Grindstone – a short walk to this next pub which is also a Greene King pub and serves 5 ales, all are GK as well, they serve food as well, and show sport so on a Saturday pub crawl I do I like to keep utpo date with football scores.
