Rumour has it locally that the excellent 3H is to close as of today, Monday 31st December 2018. I'm outside now and can't see any sign of life, but then it wouldn't normally be open on a Monday lunchtime. It'll be a very sad loss if it shuts permanently; it's one of the last rural pubs still focused on local drinkers, albeit that it offers perfectly respectable food. I'm assured Pam the owner has her reasons, but it won't be picked-up as a going concern unless it's available at the right price, and even then there needs to be a decent dollop of luck in the right person with the right money emerging at the right time with the right ideas. Could be the end of an era.

Very happy today with excellent Burning Sky's Plateau and Dark Star Hophead (just a trifle warm) and lovely food. Regulars were all chaps, one giving it max about women drivers luckily my other half and chief driver for the day, so I could imbibe, was in the loo. Otherwise friendly pub and helpful and courteous Czech barlady. Recommended.

The previous incumbent left in February 2015 after six generally successful years at the helm. I heard repeated rumours of things having slipped significantly since, as the actual owner of the pub had elected to take back management of it, despite seemingly having little notion of, or interest in, how to do it. Happily however, a well-informed local source told me recently that she appears to have relented, and has brought in someone to manage the 'Shoes who actually seems to know how to run a boozer effectively. Following receipt of this good news, I paid it my first visit in a year and a half last week.

I found the place to be in generally decent order - a respectable range of cask beers had been restored to the bar (a mix of more ubiquitous offerings for the less adventurous and some more interesting fare for the more seasoned), and the two I tried were served nicely - the Surrey Hills Ranmore in particular was very well conditioned. Otherwise, a familiar set of other big brand keg fonts were in play for those whose palates have yet to catch on to cask!

The pub did seem much more focused on being a drinkers' venue, and I am bound to say that bar the staff, all the punters in at that point were chaps. That doesn't mean that's representative of all times of course, or that it is in any way an anti-female place. Also, it was clear from the blackboard that food is still served, and menus were on the sidelines for the sessions when the kitchen is open. Having not eaten yet however I can't pass judgement on the quality or range of the solid wares.

Decor-wise the pub had been spruced up since my last emergence, which shows willing, although for my preferences, it was a touch too bright and front roomy. Still, a minor point that certainly shouldn't put a potential punter off. In more clement weather the garden remains a draw, especially for larger family-orientated groups.

All-told, I think the TH seems to be back on the up, provided it is managed by a person who knows the ropes and responds to local demand - and who can get on with the landlady, who really just needs to sit back and let a pro do the work and she can take her money. Best of luck folks.

Went in one Saturday lunchtime and thought the food and beer was good.

A young couple seated at the back had a kiddie with them that they kept mostly under control.
All well and good, as they were there for lunch and left not long after.

However in the main bar were two men with buggies, each with a screaming baby, and a kiddie running about.

Puts me off going to a pub to find it has become more of a creche.

Me and my girlfriend are new to the area and we've only ever visited the pub twice. First was a lunchtime, and the area of the bar with the real ale pumps was blocked by a group of locals / regulars. One guy in particular was very rude and just wouldn't allow access to the bar. The second was a Friday evening with a different gang of locals. Younger, louder and even ruder than the lunchtime mob. I go along with one of the other comments about who actually runs the place. My girlfriend will never set foot in the place again. Don't think I will either. The beer and food are reasonable, though not as fantastic as some reviewers have posted.
