Profile information

30 year old local to Guildford who enjoys proper old pubs who serve good beers, where the people are friendly and the food is not 'ping and fling'.

I always try to be honest in my reviews but bear in mind that anything 'trendy' where you get charged a premium and people pose won't get good reviews from me generally.

Laters.

The Withies Inn, Compton

I liked it but the overall impression was Fawlty Towers!

Nice garden for a drink on a summer evening with plenty of seating in a peaceful setting.

Decent food heavily biased towards seafood and a good selection of steaks. Priced towards the upper end of the range.

Bizarre waiters who all look like they have been working there for 40 years and everything comes on doillies! But polite and efficient.

Three ales on, unfortunately Green King and an Adnams which are not the most exciting but at least there was the local TEA.

The Turks Head, Alcester

Came back here after my previous visit on my stag do (see November 2009 entry), this time it was my new wife plus my 5 week old son. Got a cosy sofa in front of the fire and had a really tasty meal. Thoroughly recommend this place, although I concur with a previous review that it is a mixed bag of old building and newish interior.

Recommended.
