Just got used to walking down from Potterne to spend a nice sat afternoon in the pub and they've changed there damn opening hours!

18 Feb 2013 12:19

George & Dragon, Potterne

One day i'm going to go in there and it's going to be busy..... but then again maybe not. Nothing wrong with the place or the beer (apart from the price, didn't like £1.95 for a 1/2 of Old Timer), but it's always quiet.

18 Feb 2013 12:17

The Three Crowns, Devizes

great place if you want to get served by stoned barstaff

18 Feb 2013 12:15

13 Jun 2012 12:26

The Boathouse, Widbrook

Looking good under new ownership, has been tidied up, beer good although could do with beers from smaller breweries, currently Doom Bar, 6X & Ringwood Best. Food looks good from the temporary new menu. Staff friendly.

13 Aug 2011 10:15

The Mill Bay, Ventnor

again just Yates & Ringwood, a very odd pub, part pub, part restaurant, part bierkeller, doesn't quite hang together, very quiet compared to the spyglass, staff don't seem to want to speak to you!

13 Aug 2011 10:14

The Rose Inn, Ventnor

Nice basic boozer

20 Apr 2011 14:38

The Plough, Bradford on Avon

I do like this down to earth sports bar/boozer but he keeps running out of real ale, and never has one in the cellar ready in time, its not rocket science.....

20 Apr 2011 14:37

The Kings Arms, Bradford on Avon

Shut for a while now reopened under temporary management, guess the mediterranian gastro pub idea didn't work then......... could have told them that when they opened! Now green king which spent loads with new gastro pub signage have to take it all down and start again, wish people would research the local area before coming up with these "good" ideas.

20 Apr 2011 14:36

The Bear, Bradford on Avon

Horrible redecoration, looks like a hotel lounge, beer nice but expensive, think theyv'e taken it too up market for the local drinkers...... wont be back

20 Apr 2011 14:33

Dandy Lion, Bradford on Avon

Last time i went in there (a few months ago) had a pint of Wadworth Malt'n'Hops (ABV 4.5%) and got charged 3.50 not going back, when i can get a great pint at the three houseshoes for 2.70

20 Apr 2011 14:31

The Three Horseshoes, Bradford on Avon

I still cannot see for the life of me why this pub is not in the 2011 Good Beer Guide, 3 real ales always good quality changed after each barrel, only 2.70 a pint, broadoak perry out of the barrel,friendly staff, nice atmosphere, better than some i've been in that are in the guide.

20 Apr 2011 14:29

The Pike and Musket, Tuffley

Typical sizzling pub company pub cheap food mostly from the cargrill or microwave, real ale cheap and reasonable quality but never enough staff on, tables are sticky with glasses and plates left on them, only went in there as it was the only pub near me.

The Lamb and Lion, Bath

7 Jul 2008 14:32

The White Hart, Basingstoke

nice & friendly, good beer

30 Jun 2008 13:08

The Bounty Inn, Basingstoke

good real ale & friendly service, a nice change from the many up market bars in the centre of town, could do with a bit of a clean up though.

30 Jun 2008 13:07

The Bolton Arms, Old Basing

not too bad, a bit clicky and sometimes a long wait to be served even when quiet.

30 Jun 2008 13:05

The Crown, Old Basing

my favouite pub in the area, nice beer, good food, friendly staff.

30 Jun 2008 13:04

The Millstone, Old Basing

Great location, food good if overpriced, real ale excellent, staff friendly in general, needs permenant managers not the recent merry-go-round

30 Jun 2008 13:03

Somerset Arms, Semington

6 May 2008 13:45

Sir Issac Pitman, Trowbridge

And i thought the one in bath was bad..........

2 May 2008 15:15

Sir Issac Pitman, Trowbridge

wouldn't use the wi-fi in here, never get out alive with the laptop.

2 May 2008 15:14

Sir Issac Pitman, Trowbridge

how wetherspoons aren't embarressed to call this one of theirs i'm not sure, would be fine with more staff, staff who are actually interested in serving instead of talking amongst themselves, staff who can actually work out who is next to be served especially when its quiet, also needs more lighting, its like walking into the black hole of calcutta. Oh and one further problem, the customers............

2 May 2008 15:14

The Kings Arms, Trowbridge

expensive, dirty, cold, staff uninterested, what more can i say, the problem is there are even WORSE pubs around here!

2 May 2008 15:10

The Crown Hotel, Trowbridge

nice friendly locals pub cracking pint of bass nice clean toilets, strange place for a pool table though.....

2 May 2008 15:08

The Lamb, Trowbridge

nice clean interior, smashed up toilets, good real ale, although had to wait a longtime to be served as the scottish landlord was watching celtic v rangers on sky which seemed to come first.

2 May 2008 15:06

The White Swan, Trowbridge

unbelievable mess, we walked in to extremely loud dance music (this was mid afternoon on a weekday), barmaid was putting music on the jukebox & dancing and completely ignored us, dirty dark place we walked out (she still hadn't noticed us). I'd rather go teetotal than bother again.

2 May 2008 15:02

The Kings Arms, Trowbridge

cracking pint of bombadier last weekend freindly atmosphere good food

3 Jan 2008 00:09

The Trinity, Bath

popped in last weekend, had a cracking pint of beer

3 Jan 2008 00:06

The Old Green Tree, Bath

went in last weekend, beer range a bit limitd due to selling out over xmas, was suggested to try the abbey ales bellringer which i did, tasted warm & stale so i left

3 Jan 2008 00:04

The Falkland Arms, Great Tew

my favourite pub in the country, wirked here briefly & loved every minute (except maybe the folk music). simply the best

24 Aug 2007 16:25

The Belvedere Inn, Weymouth

good local boozer, say hello to tina for me if shes working!

24 Jul 2007 15:24

The Boot, Weymouth

Unfortunately a great pub and great beer dont make for interested bar staff, be nice to see the landlord behind the bar now and again though.

24 Jul 2007 15:23

The Prospect Inn, Weymouth


24 Jul 2007 15:20

The Foresters Arms, Combe Down

Another gastro pub god arent there enough around here (see my comments on the wheelwrights arms monkton combe) nuff said

19 Jul 2007 17:57

The Wheelwrights Arms, Monkton Combe

Formerly a traditional village local, my family drank in there for generations, used to have open fire, well kept real ales, breweriana, good home cooked food, lots of local faces. NOW NONE OF THE ABOVE. bit-refit now a gastro pub, the type that when you sit at a table they ask "are you eating?" overpriced fancy food with a 10% service charge included on the bill, the (revamped) serving area now looks like the servery you would get in a restaurant, no seating or standing at the bar, if this is the future i give up.

19 Jul 2007 17:56

The Prince of Wales, Weymouth

nice little boozer, shame about the irritating neighbours who keep trying to stop dawn making a go of it

25 Jun 2007 15:59

The Queen's Hotel, Weymouth

nightmare on king street! seems to cater for live music & yobs, real ale either non existant or tastes bad, staff not interested, they should be running a pub on a housing estate in birmingham, would be more suited.

25 Jun 2007 15:57

Old Rooms Inn, Weymouth

rubbish food - rather eat in mcdonalds, bar staff uninterested, wont be back.

25 Jun 2007 15:52

The Globe Inn, Weymouth

my idea of a traditonal local, clean, tidy, welcoming, nice reasonably priced beers.

25 Jun 2007 15:51

The Edinburgh House Of Sounds, Weymouth

Great pub, well updated(perhaps a bit too posh but it might grow on me) at least theres a lock on the gents toilet & a light too!! good cheddar valley & taunton trad cider, vinyl jukebox now on all day Rock on!
