The Abinger Hatch, Abinger Common
Can't believe I'm risking saying this, but the latest in a long line of managers of pretty miserable managers appears to be be perfectly pleasant!!!!What's more they have adjusted some of the truly ridiculous pricing - food and drink - to more realistic levels. The beer, which with the exception of Ringwood's Best, seems to change quite a lot,.I have enjoyed all that I've tried with the exception of one solitary pint which was off but I don't think the young barman understood what "off" means, never mind.Have tried the food on a weekday lunchtime and it was good, but dreadfully slow coming out of the kitchen - the menu warns of a 20 minute delay while it's prepared but think (on a quite day) more in terms of 30/40 minutes with some pretty amateurish service i.e. vegetables coming out long after the main course. I would avoid eating at the Hatch at busy time until the sort this out - I'm sure they will!Those who like the but have been appalled by some pretty poor managers (who hired them?) should give it another try.

The Rose And Crown, Nottingham
Visited here earlier this year and I guess things have changed over the five years since the last review. It was pretty busy with quite a lot of well behaved young people (University?) who seemed to be enjoying their food and drinks.We did exactly the same - good food and well kept range of bitters which I understand change pretty regularly.Give it a go, you may well be pleasantly surprised!

The Bulls Head, West Clandon
I must have passed this pub hundreds of times without really giving it a second glance - how wrong I was.The interior is much nicer than the exterior. Excellent Doombar, excellent food at reasonable prices: brilliant home-made pies!Yes the pub is pretty much devoted to eating, but enough space has been left for those who just want a pint.Friendly service means I shall add The Bulls Head to my list of pubs I rate 'very good'.
