The Lincolnshire Poacher, Nottingham

Took my Fiance in here on a trip to Nottingham bank holiday weekend. I had good memoried of evenings spent in here during the 18 years I lived in Nottingham and it was good to return to see it had not really changed.

Still selling a good range of real, cask ales, guest beers and ciders. I enjoyed a nice pint of guest cider whilst my partner had a tasty pint of mild. We had breadcakes for lunch; good choice of fillings and very nice they were too. If we hadn't been going out for dinner that evening we would have probably eaten a hot meal as there was a wide variety of choice and reaonably priced too.

All in all an enjoyable afternoon spent in this pub. Would always visit when passing and highly recommended!

The Grosvenor, Nottingham

As we were stying in the hotel across the road for Bank Holiday weekend my Fiance and I popped in on a coupleof occasions for a drink. On both occasions it was impossoble to sit outside (even though the weather was warm and fine) due to the large number of smokers) so we sat inside!

Lots of TV's for the sports fans. Saturday afternoon was peaceful and we enjoyed a couple of pints. Sunday evening was busy and a quiz night. Staff mainly attentive and polite, except they appeared to have no concept of who they needed to serve next!

All in all an ok pub. Depends on what your needs are; and seemed popular too.

The Cock and Hoop, Nottingham

We popped in here on Bank Holiday Saturday evening when visiting friends in Nottingham. They had been told that the food and service was of top quality.

The bar was small and empty, including no-one around to serve. When a young lad eventually appeared we enquired about meals and we were presented with an A4 photocopied sheet of about 5 starters, mains and deserts. Limited menu for evening meal so we decided to eat else where. There looked to be reasonably priced real ales, though we never stuck around to find out!

The Churchill Hotel, Ambleside

Unable to comment in detail about this place apart from the fact that we called in after looking at the food menu and deciding on the Sunday roasts (served only on Sunday's). . . . . .

We enquired if they were still serving food (just before 8pm on a Sunday). . . . . .to be told that they were not serving food at all today!

Although, to be honest, the night before we had walked straight past as is was full of roudy football fans. It looked modern and they did not sell cask ales.

Queen's Hotel, Ambleside

Enjoyed a meal here; it's popularity spoke volumes. Struggled to get a table on a Friday evening. The food was to a good standard, varied menu and specials board. The Sticky toffee pudding and local ice cream was to die for!!!

There was an excellent selection of real ales to choose from and a good landlord who made recommendations. Would certainly frequent here again

Wateredge Inn, Waterhead

We were staying across the road, and although we chose to walk the mile into Ambleside for both evenings to eat, we popped in here on our way back to the hotel on the first evening. So cannot comment upon the food although the menu looked like good hearty food. There was a female singer, with acoustic guitar 'on'.......good songstress.

My fiance likes a good pint of real ale and they served Coniston Bluebird........which was a good pint. However, the prices were a little on the high side.

The Whalebone, Hull

My partner and I went in on Saturday afternoon for a leisurley drink. I had a handpulled pint of cider; a lttle too sweet for my usual taste, but nice all the same. My other half had a pint of Copper Dragon and enjoyed it.

Their own micro brewery beers; brewed on the premises; were extremely good value for money.

The interior was a little dated and could have done with a refurb, sky sports available. Snaks available, although not sampled.

We would return again on our travels to sample more of the beers and ciders!

The Old Thatch Tavern, Stratford Upon Avon

We visited this small pub on a busy Saturday afternoon when half of the pub was reserved for a private function. So space was limited and the pub was busy.

However we managed to get a seat on an extremely comfortable sofa. Good choice of 3 cask ales, all enjoyed by my other half. All in all a good choice of pub for an afternoon drink.

The Cross Keys, Stratford Upon Avon

Comfortable sofa's, cask beer on draft, not too busy when we visited a couple of weeks ago.

Clean facilities, though could possibly have done with a lick of paint.

The New Clarence, Hull

My Partner and I regularly both eat and drink here.

During the day it is a quiet place to rest after shopping. The food is wonderful. If you choose a hot meal you best be really hungry as the portions are huge. I have never seen such a huge fish and chips! Even the sandwiches are a filling snack (or meal!).

In the evening it can sometimes be busier, but still good service.

The Risley Park, Risley

My partner and I were staying at The Risley Hall Hotel at the weekend and chose to go to The Risley Park on our first evening for something to eat.

It was clean, nicely decorated, spacious and welcoming.

The staff were friendly, polite and helpful.

Served a good selection of beer and wines including 3 real ales (handpumps).

An impressive menu, reasonably priced, with a choice to eat in the bar area or a seperate restaurant area.

Food orders were promptly served, and all food was well presented and delicious (including a perfectly cooked steak).

We enjoyed the surroundings and the food so much we returned for our second evening meal and drinks too.

Well recommended and would return in the future.
