Excellent choice of eight ales but mainly pale ales.
Oakham: JHB, Citra and Mandarina Bavaria.
Tring: Squadron Scramble and Bridleway.
Adnams: Mosaic and Ghost Ship.
And Doombar. What the bloody hell is this one doing here?

Baxterfish mentioned a year ago a pint cost £4.60 - it still does.
Mind you, I did read sometime ago that the pub's rent went up nearly 90% (Ye Olde Fighting Cocks' down the road went up 280%) at least the are both open!
One niggle was the unnecessary pipe music.

Busy due to it's location but the service is shit and the staff will serve whoever they feel like when they think they should. Can't be arsed with all that so went elsewhere.

ANOTHER PUB THAT I'VE BEEN PRICED OUT OF. Paid my first visit in several weeks to find they have increased their prices to a shocking £4.60 for normal strength ale (Oakham Hanger 17) so didn't stay for a second pint and won't be going back which is a shame as this is a great pub but it's just too expensive.

Another well known pub to me that I can say has improved.

The beer range is now excellent.... and in a night of great pints at 5 locations, the XT 1 taken here was the pick of the bunch.

Never thought I'd say that about the Boot.

Even more reason to love the place.

Much improved range of ales on my last visit: two milds, a porter and two IPAs. Probably now has a better choice than the Blacksmith's and it's certainly a nicer pub. Very nice in fact.
