The Masons Arms, Brize Norton

A real pub make a refreshing change from whats near by in Cartaton. Real friendly 'Landlord', three great real ales - well kept. Friendly locals too. I'd travel a few mile to get to a pub like this. Nice traditional bar with further seperate areas for food and pool. Will try food next time. 9/10

The Fat Cat, Norwich

Has to be one of THE best pubs in the country. Obviously great range of beers. Staff very friendly and the locals are pretty decent too.

10 out a 10

The Lord Clyde, Borough

Pretty standard range of real ales, but still a great pub. All round traditional feel, some nice mirrors and interesting tiles in the gents! Real locals feel about the place, but always very welcoming. 8/10

The Royal Oak, Borough

One of the best pubs in London. Great range of Harvey's, both on tap and in bottle. Food is pretty good too.

Nice mix of punters, a homely interior and a very accomodating landlord. What more could you want?

The Shovels, Blackpool

This is a real example of making the best from what could be an uninspiring pub.

Ok, its not a C16th Coaching Inn, it a post war monster, but the beer is excellent. Always got a serious range of 6 or more casks, including some from Micro's.

The staff are always very friendly and the food is your standard pub grub.

I like it alot. A guilty pleasure 8/10

The Dolphin, Betchworth

Had no prob's with the locals.

Nice casual Youngs pub, with old basic, but attractive interior.
Staff were very polite and the bottled Youngs beer [Kew Brew & Oatmeal Stout] was good [I'm sorry but I tend to find Youngs draughts very variable, so I tend to stick to the bottles].

Look forward to returning. 7/10

The Fox and Hounds, Belgravia

I really like this pub.

I remeber when it used to have just a beer and wine licence. It's been tarted up a bit since, but it's definitely kept its character.

What make this pub really interesting is the mix of punters. From your Foxtons fools to your retired career boozers [Pinstripes to sheepskin - if you know what I mean].

The one draw back is the quality of the ale. In recent visits the Young's bitter [inc St Georges] has been poor, as has the Guinness. It doesn't stock the excellent range of Young's Bottled Ales either.

So perhaps a place to visit, but not to dwell to long.
I'd like to give it a 7, but because of the beer 6.

The Surprise at Chelsea, Chelsea

Average beer, average pub. Perhaps better than most examples in the area, but doesn't have any particular charm.

From the prevalence of the posters pushing the rather cheap, but unappetising food I expect its owned by some nasty PubCo.

Not really a suprise. Average 5/10

The Ship, Deal

Pub has the most amazing interior with a 1940's Naval/Nautical theme (obviously). Beer's decent; three real ales, though none particularly adventurous.

Only downside, the pub was quite empty when I visited [8pm on a Wednesday]. They were also playing some really naff disco music quite loadly, which really didn't help.

Would return just to revisit the interior. 7/10

The Prince Albert, Deal

Great little pub. Had three 'less than common ales' on when I visited. Though none were to my tastes, the old clips suggested many past beers were.

Ate here too. The food was both good quality and good value [I had an excellent braised steak with walnut & Guinness, my partner an equally good seabass]

Interior-wise, though touched up a little there's still a decent traditional feel 8/10

The Microbar, Battersea

Though I'm not a fan of the interior, this place has got one of the best range's of bottled beers [from the UK, Europe and further a field] in London.

I quite like it

Project Orange, Battersea

OK no hand-pulled real ales, but some excellent bottles. Particularly if you like 'new world' pale ales [little creatures etc]. But not cheap.

Music is pretty good too.

Though I'm more into my boozers, this bar is pretty good

The Running Horse, Leatherhead

This my Local for work. A bit of a pub of to halves. Games rooms youths and public bar gents.

I really like it. Always a good number of well kept ales on, [Landlord, Youngs Bitter, Pride, Bombardier, Greene King IPA] but never anything out of the ordinary.

Tend to stick to the bar which retains much of its character and has a definite charm.

Food OK [I can recommend the mix grill]. Staff very pleasant.

By far the best pub in Leatherhead

The New Inn, Winchelsea

The place is OK. I believe its the only pub in town. Didn't try the Beer, had Guinness, which was standard.

Landlord, bit of a 'geezer'[!?!?] going on about how much better Winchelsea is to London [Which apparently is just full of smack heads. Really!].

Disregarding the charm of the staff, the place has quite a pleasant feel. 'Middle-ish'

The Ypres Castle Inn, Rye

One of Rye's better pubs. Very cosy interior with decent view. Beer OK. Large area of pub dedicated to dinning.

16 Apr 2006 23:30

The Smugglers, Pett Level

Decent pub. 3 Ales; Pride, Harvey's Best and one other [which I forgotten the name of but was rather good].

Whilst pleasant enough, ambiance was somewhat spoilt by some awful dance music [3.30 on a Saturday afternoon!!!!].

The Fox and Hounds, Battersea

This is my Local.

Static range of three standard real ales. Food is OK.

Place is full of twits who, like most people who live in Battersea [but do not originate from there], don't understand the meaning of 'having a quiet conversation'.

Still go in v. occassionally

The Star Inn, Harome

I hate gastro pubs, but the food in here is top draw, the beer [wine] is excellent and the interior is beautiful.

I came here on my Stag do?!?!?

Gotta give it a 10

The White Horse Inn, Beverley

Probably one of the finest pub interiors in the country.
Food good value, Sam Smiths beer OK [go for the Oatmeal Stout in a bottle - mmmm].

This has got to be in my top five pubs

The Cork and Cheese Ale House, Southend on Sea

The shopping centre is just scary.

The pub is a gem though. Good range of beers (of vaying prices Nethergate IPA - 1.55!) and nice toasties.

Horse and Groom, Rochford

Great beer, but no atmosphere [6.30 on a Saturday].

I admire what they are trying to do with the real ale, but the place is just anodyne.

Go to the Golden Lion instead, much more fun.

Golden Lion, Rochford

This is one of THE great pubs.

Excellent range of beers, friendly locals (even to us Blackpool FC fans) and great trad interior.

Is worth visiting Rochford for.
