The White Hart, Aylesbury

Went in there recently.

It is a typical Wetherspoons but of the glass and steel type and not the "converted bank" type.

Unfortunately the choice of beers was abysmal. Apart from the "usual suspects" there was Leighton Buzzard Black Buzzard (a good beer but not on a blazing hot July lunchtime) and two Tring beers: one was finished (unknown to the bar staff) and the other not on yet. So I adjourned to the nearby Bell, a better bet in the JDW stakes.

I then had a "deja vue" moment when I remembered that the last time I called in there were very few beers so I walked out.

The Old Chapel, Darwen

Not sure why the ratings are so low.

OK its a Wetherspoons but a very nice building (chapel in classical style - one of the better buildings in town). Usual Spoons features, slow service etc. but at least all the handpumps were working (none of the "not ready" labels).

Definitely recommended.

The Abington, Abington

The Abington has recently had a fairly costly makeover. In reality it is not really that changed. Different yes, but basically the same. There are fewer TV screens everywhere now.

One change is that it is now a Greene King pub which means that the beer range is much more restricted.

Overall a fairly pleasant pub well located at the corner of Abington Park.
