|Named after Beatrice (Tilly) Shilling, a female engineer who solved a defect in Spitfires which had caused them to cut out while diving. The pubs is in a modern building, and has a clean, no nonsense modern layout, with a particular focus on Spitfires. The feel is more hotel lobby than pub, with rather plush seating. The size and shape of the seating causes some problems moving around and getting in and out of tables. Beer range is slightly below average. Service is quick and friendly, and the food was above average. |
An OK Wertherspoon, not too far from the M3 for a quick pit stop.

|Opened in July 2011. A cosier Wetherspoon compared with some with a good mix of customers. Actually too cosy when it is busy because there is very little room between tables. Food wise the kitchen staff are competent with little cause to complain. From a real ale point of view it can be very hit and miss. Apart from the usual GK ales and London Pride there are occasions when too many pumps are taken up with Andwell Brewery and their insipid collection of tasteless ales, or even worse "horrible" Hammerpot Brewery as they are known locally. Somebody must drink these beers in here, I can only assume that it is unwary visitors from the nearby Travelodge. On other occasions the choice of ales can be quite uplifting with a good choice from other local breweries and from across the country. The spring and autumn beer festivals are well supported as is the cider festival. Four ciders are permanently on offer including Old Rosie and Black Dragon. Bar service is generally good but sometimes a little patience is necessary. A pleasant Wetherspoon pub.|
