The Anchor Inn, Beer

not a bad pint of Otter. Crab sarnies after a stroll up to Beer Head were top notch tho.
Agree with previous post about the bar staff......not exactly the life and soul ofthe party on our 2 visits.

Dolphin Hotel, Beer

recently returned from a mini-break in Beer and loved the place. Would have no hesitation in recommending the Dolphin both as a place to eat and of course to drink! Very friendly and welcoming staff. My partner had seared scallops with bacon and I had home-made steak pie (gotta love a pie & a pint!)
Both dishes were of a very high standard and portion size was huge. If you're after fairly priced grub in an un-pretentious setting then look no further. oh almost forgot beer sampled was Dartmoor.......very good ;-)

The Railway Arms, Alton

Smelly bus or smelly pub................discuss! ;-)
From my experience I have never noticed a bad smell in here but then maybe my olfractory senses have been dulled by too many pints of Moondance.

The Market Hotel, Alton

Good welcoming pub for a lunchtime 'lemonade'. Not tried the nosh but haven't heard any negative comments.

28 Oct 2008 22:02

Brave New World, Surbiton

Rumour has it Aldous Huxley drinks here

The Rising Sun, Winchester

Agree with last reviewer wholeheartedly! A few years ago I ventured in this august establishment, almost as a kind of suicide fact finding mission. An hour ad 2 pints of recycled toilet water later I left with all my limbs and extremeties intact. In truth ,although the general ambience was akin to the bar in Star Wars (Odi Wan, light sabre,arm dismembered etc) I was pretty much left alone to enjoy my 'lager'. This was no doubt due to the fact that the clientale were concentrating all their attentions to some resident mr blobby wannabe who sat in the corner, belched & farted with a tedious regularity and liked to refer to everyone as a faggot!
Will give it an 8 for getting out alive

Open,shut,shut,open,shut......who cares??
The only problem is that all the retards come over the road when it's shut!!

The White Horse, Alton

Average town boozer. In the absence of kroney blanc its true colours of mediocrity are revealed ;-(

The Bargemans Rest, Newport

Two words....Caps lock

6 Aug 2008 20:29

The Railway Arms, Alton

Get in there and try a pint (or two) of Alton Pride.....Champion Beer Of Britain 2008! Failing that maybe one of the several other fine brews on offer. Generous seating at rear and back coupled with friendly staff and a relaxed ambiance equates to a must visit pub. Well done to all involved.

6 Aug 2008 18:47

The Crown Hotel, Alton

Good honest pub nosh and Sheps Neame Spitfire 2.60 a pint......fine & dandy!
Be sure to say Play up Pompey to Big Geoff.....;-)

The Barley Mow, Alton

will up my rating to 5 as on a couple of recent visits I haven't seen Mr & Mrs Unwelcoming behind the bar!!

The Royal Oak, Lasham

Have just returned on this sweltering day from visiting this pub for a recce. It's a lovely setting for a country pub and I wondered if that would be reflected in the price of the menu,drinks etc. At first glance mains averaging 13 seemed a bit steep for the purse so mrs bear & myself opted for roasts (turkey & beef)@ 9.50 each. In my opinion the roast is a good barometer of the general food standard in a given pub, so here goes.
Meals duly arrived from the friendly efficient member of staff 15 mins or so after ordering. Everything on the plate (plus cauli cheese as seperate dish) was lovely and worth every bear penny!
I must confess that I can't comment on the beer quality as due to the strangely clement weather I was drinking Guinness but I think there were 4 real ales on tap. To conclude this pup gets the 'bear stamp' of approval for food and convivialty....happy days

The Eight Bells, Alton

Would disagree about the the variable beer quality Gazza but know what you mean about the grumpy old gits! Would hazard a bet that you called in at lunchtime??

The Ship, Alresford

Never seems to be open.....any news??

Bush Inn, Arlesford

27 Jan 2008 21:04

The Bakers Arms, Alton

It's not too bad for a swift one in daylight hours! Also it opens at 10am so therefore handy for an early hairy dog

27 Jan 2008 20:50

The Anchor, North Warnborough

The Home Tavern, Eastleigh

Used to work in Beastleigh, it was effing terrible but at least you could don yer tin helmet and risk an arf before escaping on the train.

The Globe on the Lake, Alresford

Don't be too harsh on it, at least it's not an antique shop or [email protected] boutique

19 Dec 2007 18:50

The Railway Arms, Alton

Now refurbed with another bar area oot the back.....lovely job. Normally 6 real ales on (four Triple fff brews plus 2 guests?) Bitburger and Fruli for the 'fruitheads'. Happy days

The White Horse, Alton

The Swan Hotel, Alresford

.....and the fact that you need a torch to navigate your passage to the bar! ;-/

9 Dec 2007 19:31

The Eight Bells, Alton

Up the main drag and turn left by the Crown Hotel past the church and then on yer right........job done. Cracking selection of beer, always well kept and always a varied selection. Beware 'crossword corner' and political bores tho! ;-)

27 Nov 2007 20:23

The Barley Mow, Alton

Terrible! Used to pop in a couple of times each week due to it's handy location en route from work. Came to my senses and realised that is run by ,quite probably, the most unwelcoming and rude couple to ever 'run' a pub.
If youre a pikey benefit grabbing waster who spouts bigoted twaddle at the bar then you'll be right at home..........avoid at all costs being the general idea!! ;-( rant over
p.s It's a shame because the beer I've had there(between stares) has been well kept and cheap

Bar 36, Guildford
