The Hop Blossom, Farnham

‘The original and still the best’ is the only way to summaries this little piece of pub heaven. Traditional down to the bone, serving the best kept pint of London Pride I’ve ever supped. The locals can be a little ‘cliquey’ sometimes but the bar staff are always very friendly. This place is a shining example of how pubs are supposed to be; warm, inviting, friendly and beer that is kept in top condition. Food is a little pricy but I just come here for the ale.

Borelli's Cafe Bar and Restaurant, Farnham

Oh dear...where do start? Went here on a night out with a friend of mine for his birthday. As soon as we entered I noticed that there were some very pretentious looking drunk people loitering around the bar. The girl who served me behind the bar must have left her personality at home that night and did not smile, all night! I went into the gents and found some drunken fool peeing all over the floor. How this guy ever managed to stay in the bar all night was beyond me. The bouncers seem to use this place as a hang out to chat-up anything wearing a skirt so I didn’t even bother flagging this up with them. To sum it up, this place seems to trying too hard to be Farnham’s only trendy wine bar but it ends up coming over as an over-priced hang out for drunken spivs and wannabe footballer’s wives. I just hope they were all having an ‘off night’ for their sakes.

The Sir Walter Tyrell, Brook

My wife and I found this pub whilst taking our children for a walk at the New Forest last week. We made our way to this pub, after our walk, to order a Sunday roast. The bar was a little busy but there were 2 very good bar men at hand so everyone got served fairly quickly. After we ordered our drinks we decided to sit and have our food. we were both extrememely impressed with our roast beef dinner which was cooked to perfection; lots of tender meat, slightly crunchy veg and near perfect roast potatoes. We thought that this must have just been the chef having a 'good day' as we have had countless badly cooked roast dinners at the various pubs we have visited in the past. We sat outside afterwards so that the children could play in the garden and both agreed that we probably would rate this pub near the top of the scale.

However, today we made the journey to this pub all the way from Farnham, Surrey (where we live) as we rather enjoyed our walk and dinner from the previous week. When our dinner arrived we both could not believe it! It was exactly the same as the previous week, excellent and perfectly cooked. For eight quid, this is the best roast dinner i've ever been served at a restaurant style pub in a very long time. It's actually worth the 50 mile journey down here. In fact, whilst we were watching our children play in the garden, we met another couple at this pub today who told us that they too travel from miles out in Sussex just to come here for the food.

The staff were efficient and polite and the ale (Ringwood 49'er) was in top condition. The only thing that slightly annoyed me about this pub is that you have to que up at a seperate window to order your food. Apart from that small irritation, this has to be the find of the year for me.
