The Tartar Frigate, Broadstairs

Nice old fashioned pub, good friendly service, sea view.

The Cinque Port Arms, Hastings

I was passing this pub and got a smile from the barmaid who was outside watering the plants, so decided to pop in. It's a friendly little pub where you can lean against the bar and chat with the locals (despite me being a London tourist), like people used to in old 1940s films, probably starring Stanley Holloway. It's deceptively large, because there's an upstairs room as well as a small yard out the back. Well worth a visit, I went a couple of times while staying in the area.

The Eight Bells, Eaton

Just when you're about to give up on British pubs, you find a hidden gem like this one which restores your faith. This is how I remember pubs used to be. A proper ale house instead of a Farrow and Ball painted restaurant pretending to be a pub. A nice old traditional building with a rough and ready but clean feel to it, a pretty beer garden with an Aunt Sally stand, good range of real ales well kept and served, friendly service and a 'local' feel. Definitely recommended, perfect for a visit if you're cycling out from Oxford.
