    10 million more beer mats

    As part of our mission to help make pubs even better places to be, our mates at Foster's have just printed 10 million of their beer mats with our logo on them.

    .....but it's not just Foster's. We've teamed up with most world's biggest drink brands who are literally waiting to hear how their drinks are being served in pubs - that way they'll know where their drinks are up to scratch and also where there's some room for improvement.

    So come on, help us help pubs and score your local, online and on mobile.

    100,000 more reasons

    From today we're giving people literally thousands of new reasons to visit the ‘Great British pub’ after adding over 100,000 additional pub attributes, ranging from beer gardens to pool tables, to our listings. We've been working closely with our partners at Heineken to take the number of pub benefits listed on our site to more than 250,000, making useyourlocal.com the most comprehensive guide to pubs in the UK. 

    Stuart Mills, founder of useyourlocal.com, said; “Put simply, we’re making finding ‘a pub in Oxford with a dart board’ easier than it has ever been, which is all part of our mission to get people off their sofas and back into pubs."

    If you want to help, just find your favourite local pubs and check that everything is listed correctly - every piece of information you give helps pubs.

    Your Local Needs You!

    You really can help us help pubs. Find pubs you know on our site and update their details yourself. It's FREE and it's EASY. Tell us if they serve food, have a garden or show footie. That way more people will be able to find exactly what they're looking for, more people will go to pubs and fewer will close. Simple!

    Just find your local pub then follow the links for "Update pub details" - it could hardly be easier to support UK pubs.

    Simon Mayo's Drivetime

    Since featuring on last night's Simon Mayo Drivetime show on Radio 2 our website has gone into overdrive and our email box is bursting at the seams.

    Everyone just loves the idea of having their Christmas parcels delivered to the pub and perhaps having a cheeky drink at the same time. What could be better than that!

    Thanks to all at Radio 2 for giving us the opportunity to tell the world and help pubs at the same time.
