The Cock Inn, Luddesdowne

This public house continues to set extremely high standards & both the quality and the range of real ales/lagers remains as exceptional as ever.

Railway Inn, Cobham

This establishment has once again reopened & I wish the new propreitor the very best. It has so often in the past lacked that something that makes a pub tick. I have never known quite what it is to be frank but it good be very good indeed in the right hands.

The Railway Tavern, Meopham

i understand this establishment is again under new management & I wish them well. This Public House like so many others is an integral part of its village & it deserves to be supported.

Railway Tavern, Longfield

The real ale in this establishment is of the very highest quality indeed and is of an exceptional standard. It is a credit to the cellarman. Whilst i wouldn't class myself as a regular in any particular public house i have been in this one on many occassions & have been made to feel welcome.

The Palm Tree, Mile End

I had a most enjoyable couple of lunchtime hours in this pub and the landlord was most welcoming and projected a sincere warmth throughout my stay there. Not being from the area or indeed the East End it would be nieve of me to begin to understand the complexities of a pub such as this but i would suggest an open minded approach should you choose to visit.

Public Houses such as the Palm Tree are in my opinion very special places especially to local people and this should be borne in mind when visiting from outside the area. This would not be a pub for everybody but that should not be taken as a criticism of any kind. It is primarily a pub for local people and that ought to understood and respected albeit i have no doubt that visitors will appreciated and welcomed as i was.

The Railway Tavern, Meopham

i must say i'm flattered by the latest review in relation to the 'Talk Sport' remark. In essence there are plenty of characters in this pub and the review is i'm afraid hopelessly naive in the extreme. Having spent most of my life in pubs this one has a lot to offer make no mistake about that.

The Crown, Turners Hill

Having attended the same function i fully endorse the comments below. Excellent service and a very pleasant drinking enviroment. If you are in the area its certainly worth a visit.

The Scared Crow, West Malling

The John Brunt VC, Paddock Wood

I'm afraid this is a shockingly poor establishment with little if anything to recommend. Uninterested staff and poor selection of ales. Great shame as under the right management there is an awful lot of potential for it to be a very good pub.

The Home Cottage, Redhill

I went into this estabishment for the first time yesterday evening and i was very impressed. A proper pub with a genuine human warmth was readilly apparent. I certainly recommend it wholeheartedly.

The Two Chairmen, St James's

I was quite taken with this pub. Pleasant staff and decent clientele. Impressed and will give this another visit. Certainly been to a whole lot worse in the vacinity thats for sure.

The Tipperary, Fleet Street

An excellent find which i wasn't expecting given its very central location. i will certainly suggest this for those looking for a real pub.

The Hand and Shears, Barbican

Very impressive albeit i have hitherto only had one visit and it was the last in a lengthy crawl so in good spirits . In essence this pub has a good feel about it, earthy and real which isn't always the case in the metropolis. I will be back.

The Odd One Out, Colchester

Thank goodness there is still a pub and locals which might 'discourage' the use of mobile phones and folk can enjoy proper conversation and a decent pint without the inane trivel often associated with these things. Keep up the excellent work in this truly great pub.

The Grapes, Southampton

Please note this pub is now closed as of January 2009

The Sea Horse, Mansion House

I endorse all of the above and this is a very welcoming public house and the owners should be applauded for their considerable efforts in making this a place to be proud off.

Honest Lawyer, Scunthorpe

Very impressive pub with honesty friendliness and warmth not harmed in no small way by attractive staff if can be allowed and forgiven for saying so.Only sorry the Iron went down as Southampton are now a division above albeit i doubt for long. Great beer and wish it every success.

The Lobster Pot, West Malling

A proper Public House in the true sense of the word and one that needs to be preserved and not lost to souless chains that i have little doubt masquerade as such nearby.Good ales and whilst i'm not a local i wish it every success, if you are a local and enjoy traditional ale and pubs make every effort to support it. Crying shame if this was lost.

The King Alfred, Southampton

shockingly poor i'm afraid, service absolutely rancid on match days which tells you a lot about the people running the place, without being too disrespectful an utterly clueless approach to pub management to neglect it at what is obviously going to be its busiest time. oh dear.

The Railway Tavern, Meopham

I have some symphathy with the previous comment about the landlady who would do well to remember that pubs are in decline and her surly approach is regrettable too say the least,not matched by the younger staff who put her to shame somewhat.That's the negative, the positive is that this pub serves exceptional courage best which can still holds is own as a good pint.

The Cockpit, Blackfriars

A public house in the true sense of the word and a welcome and much needed watering hole from the souless chains that masquerade as such.Some of the crude,incessant and unnecessary language used at the bar by some locals can be a tad regrettable but this is a minor criticism and shouldn't put of those looking for these little gems that are sadly in decline.

The Odd One Out, Colchester

This pub is frankly what real drinking is all about and is an absolute joy.If there is a finer place in the whole of Essex i will be extremely suprised.Quality ales drunk by real people in proper surroundings and to tamper with this place would be a crime.
we have lost too many of these pubs lets not lose this one.
