Yates's, Camberley

This has now re-opened as the Surrey arms. All I can say is WOW!! SUPERB food considering the price, well dressed professional and courteous staff, VERY nicely and tastefully appointed with solid oak lightwood tables, great use of space. Gog range of ales, but only three lagers on tap - Peroni (£4:25/pt), Estrella (£3:65/pt) and a Czech brew that I didn't try. Estrella is the best option. Pleasant seating area with four tables under a veranda on the highstreet itself.

The Wetherspoons adjacent attracts the lower quality clientelle, making this place an unexpected gem in Camberley. Hope they do a better job at keeping the riff-raff out than Yates' before it!

The Shepherd and Flock, Farnham

Visited this place on Sunday night. It was very very quiet, and we counted 2 other guests outside who were just leaving, four more inside and two in the back garden. Exactly why it was this quiet became apparent when I ordered a round of drinks. I thought £4:60 a pint outside London was unheard of outside restaurants until that moment, but clearly not!

Locationally, sat in the middle of a busy roundabout is not the most relaxing of settings either, especially as the odd bout of road rage (2 in as many hours) led drivers to blare their horns at one another whilst shoulding obscenities.

On the plus side, the range of ales is pretty good - nice to see Doonbar and Ringwood offerings alongside those from the Hogs Back brewery.

On the whole, though, I would not recommend.

The Poacher, South Warnborough

This pub is back on the market.

The six-figure rent/rates are so high compared to the Turnover that this place cannot be run profitably. So there'll be another change or ownership, as another hopeful lines themselves up in the belief that they can make a living by running this pub.

Good luck to them, and I wish them all the best. But any prospective landlord is going to need to have substantial cash backing to weather the loss-making times until turnover can be increased to bring the business back to profitability.
