The usual pubs are:

  • After cragging: at a suitable pub near to the crag
    (some of the standard pubs are described in the crag directions).

Anyone interested in joining the club is welcome to come along, but it's worth emailing the first to make sure that someone will be there! (and have a look at the membership page).
