It doesn't seem particularly easy to find real ale in this neck of the woods. The Orchard certainly didn't offer any. The keg choice was Carling, San Miguel, Aspall's Harry Sparrow, Craft Styles Ice Breaker, Estrella Dam, Fosters & Guinness. The pool table has pride of place in the centre of this pub, which is located in the middle of a housing estate. Probably the worst pub of the day that I visited.

Enjoyed a very nice karaoke evening here last Tuesday. Guinness was good too.

The freehold is up for sale but they hope that it won't affect business.
The governor leases it free of tie from the freeholder at the moment and he will continue there until the end of his lease or unless he wants to pack it up and sell his lease.

This is an out-of-the-way place, but a very decent local. It is quiet, but there is a core of ale drinkers who use the place at regular times. Worth a visit.

Decent well-run estate-pub,apparently up for sale (?), Harveys was tired (few other real ale drinkers apparent in the bar)

Popped in today and had a tip-top pint of Harveys, so had to stay for another. The second pint I had was the last in the barrel, so of course, I had to stay to see what the new barrel was like. It was even better. On a par with The Royal Oak or The Garland. The locals like their beer, and were very friendly.

This pub is in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide 2007, and I think it's rightly included. The cellar here is obviously very well kept.

The architecture of the Orchard is 1960's square box practical, and it does look a bit dour from the outside. But try the beer!

Getting there is a problem if you're not local. Try the 367 bus, getting off at the stop for Edenham School.
