Badgers, Petworth

Stayed at the nearby Petworth Old Station and this pub is just a hundred yards or so away. Very friendly staff and animals. Quite sophisticated pub food which I liked though my wife found her choice restricted - no simple stuff like fish n chips. Quality of the food was excellent though for once I did not opt for a beer so cannot pass comment. I would go to the Badgers again.

The Stackpole Inn, Stackpole

More a restaurant then a typical pub, the Stackpole Inn is nonetheless an excellent establishment. I visited without booking on a Tuesday and got the last space I the car park and the only available table for two. I chose Lightning (guest ale) which was correctly chilled and fresh. Rev James was also available plus a local brew of 7%+! (Cannot remember the name of it.) For food I had locally caught whole plaice and season veg and it was superb in every respect and equal to anything I have had in the best London eateries. Two x two course meals, drinks and liqueur/coffees came to £55. Nearly forgot to mention the attentive and interested staff.

I enjoyed my visit so much that I booked a table for the Thursday and followed much the same course, this time having the Welsh lamb which was of extremely high quality. Folks were being politely turned away for lack of tables/booking and some chose to wait – I cannot blame them. I drank Rev James which was perfect in all senses. Other beers are available including the usual range of lagers plus Guinness.

Without doubt, the Stackpole Inn is the best establishment in the area and the management work hard to maintain standards. Like I said, more a restaurant than a pub and in fine weather there are some tables on the lawn outside. Will most definitely visit again and recommend this place to friends.

Ye Olde Cock Tavern, Fleet Street

Visited on a Saturday and the place was largely empty as is to be expected in this area. A good variety of wines and beers available and food at reasonable prices though I did not eat there. Enjoyed a glass of Bankers Draft which was chilled and of good quality. Others on tap included Adnams Bitter, IPA, Bombardier and London Pride. I was pleased to see Beaujolais Village on the shelf together with other reasonably priced quality wines for the wine lovers out there.

The pub is a mix of old and new. I noted that the bar staff allowed a tourist to sample some ale before buying (the Banker’s Draft as it happens). Would visit again but there are better pubs around.
