A good beer selection and appealing looking food, the makeover of this pub as the Independent is generally a winner if perhaps slightly sanitized in a light pine kind of way. Beers from the Langham brewery are welcome and the semi circular alcove at the front a nice spot to wile away an afternoon.

Nice place serving Goldmark beers from up the road in Arundel. My two pints of Liquid Gold were immaculate and went down very well.

Done over in a slightly sterile way, perhaps, but certainly worth factoring in to your plans if you're on a Hanover crawl.

the pint of Goldmark Classic Bitter (4.3) was so good at lunchtime we stopped off for another on the way home from town (not hard as it is just next to where the #81 bus stops). I see that Shane is back in the kitchen, with a pared down menu that smells so good we'll be back for food some time soon.

Well Mr Robin Day, 3 out of 4 pumps working - that's dreadful isn't it? 1 out of 4 pumps not working - shameful. Pale, yellowish beer - that'll be summer ale then eh? Fancy serving that at this time of year. I was in the Walmer last night for a few snifters with the irregular regulars, Ricky Doodle, Professor Sir Rob Lord Emanuel, Roger The Pirate Chef, Fake Gyllenhaal, Compo etc., (no Mop and Gripper - they're in Bulgaria drinking pale, yellowish beer) and out of the 4 pumps Mr Fitzsimons, our ever genial host, along with his charming bar ladies, Amy and Katie, were cheerfully and efficiently producing, Hop Idle, Liquid Gold, Becks Vier, Kronenbourg, some organic lager whose name escapes me, Brooklyn, 5a.m. Saint, Dead Pony, Stowford Press, and another top flight cider I can't remember - dementia I think (me, not the cider - it'll come to me later) and Guiness. All from 4 pumps - bleeding miraculous ain't it. No wonder your date never turned up you miserable git. Aspalls Cider - told you I'd remember. Pip Pip

Popped in as I was supposed to be meeting a friend in there.
3 out of 4 pumps working, all with very pale yellowish liquid, very overhopped "Hophead" clones, all tasting exactly the same, no malt, just hops, one of the regulars said that they must all come out of the same barrel.
Struggled through most of a pint, then left as my friend had not turned up.
