This is my favourite pub in Beech or is it Beck?

Love this pub. Me and my mate ... Bearded Steve, make a point of visiting this pub every year on what some might call a Pilgramage. Others might call it a train.

Every March without fail, it's on with the chunky jumper and wellies, and slap that Travel Scrabble into the rucksack.

On our last visit, the ales were on top form as usual. My two favourites being Portly Jules and Barbour Face.

This pub is also famous for being the pub where they filmed the Lake District pub scenes in the movie Withnail & I.

The barmaid was very friendly, although when I asked her if the Sea Urchin Ceviche was one of the food specials, she simply stared hard at an invisible spot on the floor, as though it somehow contained the answer to a question she had never fully resolved.

A final word about the silly childish rumours that Ivana Trump sometimes drinks in this pub. Anyone with any sense whatsoever, knows that story is total garbage, as Ivana prefers The Rose Tavern on North Brink.

It was deserted on a Friday lunchtime. Doors were open letting in icy fenland winds / tumbleweeds as people marched in and out with rubbish sacks. The blackboards proclaimed fine grub, so we persevered despite the air of dated coach-party-annexe dereliction.
We only found out that just sandwiches were being served after ordering beer (my half of Wherry was fine). 25 minute wait for ciabbatas which were obviously cooked in a rush from the freezer. Greasy Tesco value bacon. Grubby mats. Bored lacklustre service. Suppose we caught it on a bad day.

After several successful years, Lucille, Barry and Ben have moved on and as the current landlady bemoaned 'are a hard act to follow'. Nevertheless, please don't be discouraged from trying the new regime. Food seems excellent as ever, albeit with a slightly reduced menu and the beer range is good for the area.
