The Ram, Kingston Upon Thames

Fairly regular visitor mostly for the delights of sitting in the garden in the sun. Recently refurbished but i find myself fairly disappointed with the outcome seemingly just a clone of the druids head... went in this week and was served a pretty gross pint of adnams regatta but unfortunately could not find anything to replace it with both other guests in fairly similar bad condition and with 2 pumps of GK IPA and not alot else we asked for our money back and left. Another recent visit had me trying the food very disappointing portion sizes. ordered selection of sides and a sharing plate, found 3 potato wedges not entirely substantial for the price we paid. With the current road works next to the garden i can only suggest escaping to the mill with few real ale venues worth going to in the immediate area.

Royal Forresters Hotel, Ascot

This pub COULD be great but ultimately ruined by co-orperate ownership, with beefeater logos plastered over the walls and tacky premier inn extensions. To say that though all credit to the bar manager who definately knows his stuff. Typical greene king ales OSH, Morlands Original and abbotts all well kept. really lovely building was told its 200 years old but that could be wrong. Best kept pint in ascot if you can get past its faults.

Royal Hunt, Ascot

Greene king pub in north ascot which i thought had alot of charm. GK IPA and Morlands original nothing spectacular but drinkable, staff and locals alike were friendly. interesting layout with darts boards and plasma TV, large garden.
Visited again on xmas eve to be greeted by a free buffet put on by the pub which was great. Nothing wrong with this pub nothing special but nor is the town its situated in which makes this lack of a better option.

Jagz Bar, Ascot

Not worth a visit, buy a drink from the stall in ascot station if your thirsty. Pricey "jazz bar" did have Deuchars IPA which was lacklustre at best. clientele mixture of the overpaid and the youngsters wanting to go waste their time in the club down stairs. staff particularly rude and clueless about their trade.

The Gold Cup, Ascot

Lovely Small boozer yards away from where the cranborne tower used to be. GK IPA and Morlands Original well kept. Locals pub with lots of character, landlady (pauline) was a joy. Darts, pool table and a quiz night, not likely to get busy any time soon but nothing wrong with it.

The Railway, Putney

Other than the guarantee of a guest ale their is little to draw the discerning drinker here unless your really trying to save those pennies. I found the manager who served me to be delightful shame all his staff just shuffled around looking blankly at you. typical wetherspoons, reasonably kept beer and cheap pub grub not alot of atmosphere but the model railway is an interesting feature. Would avoid on weekend evenings.

The Whistle and Flute, Putney

Nice fullers pub albeit not a very warming atmosphere, staff were nice enough for a chat though. Pride, chiswick, Seafarers and ESB on, particularly enjoyed the chiswick, seafarers and ESB kept well too. Food was good and served swiftly the menu does look a bit empty. Good fullers pub for those that havent found the bricklayers yet.

The Coat and Badge, Putney

For where this pub is situated it could do alot better but not a terrible place by any means. Tribute, bombadier and Sharps Doom bar all pretty well kept, being a cornish man myself the tribute went down a treat. didint try the food. The major flaw i found with this pub is the volume of the music they inflict on its clientele which is quite a mixed bag itself. Also literally left to sit in the dark to finish my pint after last orders.. very rude staff who really couldnt of cared less.

Good pint but not a place you can sit down and enjoy with a book.
