The Waggon and Horses, Surbiton

Got to agree with daveo, the pub has lost most of its character. Now a souless thai restaurant that has taken the back section and garden of this once great pub. A big shame. Beer is Youngs with now nothing great on tap. What could have been eh?

The Red Lion, Thames Ditton

Jack Boc, what has happened then since January? It was not busy and I think I know why.

I had a visit planned in the back of my mind since being told about this place by a landlord of a pub in north Kingston so was pretty disappointed and a bit annoyed when I spent a bit of time in here. A pint and two small bottles of beer cost over £12!?! I was thinking of eating and had a quick look at the menu before seeing the prices and quickly forgetting it! No decent Ale only expensive lagers.

I know Thames Ditton is full of 4x4 Porsche driving maniacs who like nothing better than a bit of poncing. That does not mean you can charge those sort of prices unless you are trying to cater for a souless poncy poky little pub attracting these sort of tossers.

I remember the Red Lion to be pretty bad but now it is a complete disgrace.

The Poltimore Arms, Yarde Down

The Poltimore Arms is possibly the best pub in England. The landlord was telling us that they are not on the national grid and they have a sometimes unreliable generator providing the power as he lit the candles but I don't think that should bother you. The pub has a nice roaring fire, excellent beers and fantastic food. You will realise that there are still great people running pubs during and after your visit as they were friendly, helpful and generally a good bunch of people.

As mada points out, it is still too far from home. This pub would definitely be my local if it was closer.
