White Hart, Chesham

Lovely typical county village pub with a welcoming atmosphere and roaring fires. Beer is always excellent, normally a couple on, sometime 3. Food is on a level with a gastro pub.

The Masons Arms, Stapleton

This is a fantastic pub. So unchanged, without trying to look old. The beer's top notch too. Just wish it was my local and not 130 miles away.

The Carpenters Arms, Burghclere

lovely meal, reasonable prices, nice beer and a pleasant atmosphere. Not many of these country pubs around these days so visit as soon a you can.

The Grenadier, Belgravia

Really surprisingly quite little pub which could have been in the countryside rather than right next to Hyde Park Corner,
I liked it and the beer was OK but at London prices 3.55 a pint.
Barman was a little abrupt and so I can imagine that the other people's comments are correct.
Visit as it's in a lovely location but beware the barman.

The Full House, Hemel Hempstead

Big pub, typical reasonably priced simple Weatherspoons food. As Weatherspoons pubs go this pretty good and pretty much a good as it gets in Hemel.

The Fox Inn, Stanton Harcourt

Good typical old fashioned drinking pub. If a little limited on real ales.

The Red Lion, Northmoor

The Ferryman Inn, Bablock Hythe

Friendly pub. Beer was OK - 6x and Wadsworth IPA. Nice location. Bit bland looking inside.

The Queens Head, Chesham

Beer was really good, decor was very homely and food looked good value. Yes, best pub in Chesham (the rest are just plain rubbish except the Swan which is a little way out of the town centre).

The Alehouse, Reading

Yes, this is a great little pub. Lots of great beer and little drinking booths. A real beer drinker's pub. It's the only pub I know of in the Reading town centre which has any character.

Black Boy, Bushey Heath

Yes Bushey is depressing for pubs. This was another pretty poor beer quality, average scruffy boozer inside. Go to the Red Lion, beer better, cheaper, just the same old scruffy interior.

The King Stag, Bushey

Very well presented pub. Beer is Green King so I had a pint of Gunniess.

The Three Crowns, Bushey Heath

Didn't eat, beer was pretty average.

Royal Oak, Bushey

Pretty arverage pub with average beer.

The Red Lion, Bushey

The London Pride in here is probably the best I've had anywhere (and I've drunk a lot of it, trust me, especially on the brewery tour at Cheswick) and it has only just gone up 5p in the last couple of months to 2.15. The food is really good and unbelieveably cheap (16oz steak 5.99, 8oz 3.99). It's a bit rough and ready, but there's an awful lot worse pubs out there, even my girlfriend doesn't mind it in there.

The Two Brewers Inn, Chipperfield

Must agree with the others. Typical Brewers Fayre pub. Beer rubbish, expensive. Food was rubbish even for one of their pubs.

The Boot, Chipperfield

Haven't eaten here for a long time, it was OK in the restaurant side. Bar area really small and smokey (won't be come July and they ban it). Beer was pretty good.

The Green Dragon, Flaunden

Beer's OK. Unusual old local (not many of them left now). Worth a visit.

Swan, Chesham

Still as good as when I rated it in 15 Nov 2005. I've had some meals here since then and they are top quality, though not cheap. An excellant special meal and night out for your partner. Timothy Taylor still great.

The Bell, Waltham St Lawrence

Absolutely great old pub, the 2 bar areas look totally original. Great range of real ales and that friendly atmosphere that you only get in pubs out in the middle of nowhere in the coutry. A must see, especially to show any tourists.

Swan, Chesham

Lovely old country pub with large fire place and original tudor style timber cellings. Beer excellant especially the Timothy Taylor Landlord. Food looks great too, if a little pricey but has award wining chef so probably worth it.
