I know what you mean, dorsetknob.

I've been to pubs where you're plagued by small flying insects too. Worse still some seem to bite and make you itchy, so you don't stay long.

But according to Wiki there's no such thing as the "beer fly". What it seems to be is any old flying insects which come in, often thanks to smokers holding the door open while they stand blocking the doorway, (so they don't get too cold). It's a nuisance to add to the draught they cause too.

Some of these pests, fruit flies etc. will be attracted to beer and wine, and the midges to the customers. I've been in pubs where the latter breed in the warm damp soil of the pot plants too.

It's apparently got worse since the smoking ban (but that's no reason at all to reverse it). Some say cigarette smoke worked as an insect repellent, but it was a much more effective non-problem-having customer repellent.

Ringwood Best Bitter, Hobgoblin were on Pump, opted for Ringwood Best which was OK although a tad cold. Bit of a Gastro Pub, old at the front with a beamed ceiling and modern at the back. however tastefully done. I sat at the bar, but at several of the tables others were eating and i must say the food looked good. Friendly staff.
