Griffin Hotel, March

Still a Smith and Jones pub .Very popular on Friday and saturday with the young people. Has 4 handpumps on now 3 regular and one guest . Still operates as a hotel but with fewer rooms than it had before Baracuda took it over . Interesting tale attached to the building as it has its own ghost ! I first heard about this tale in the 1970s ,when I first came to live in the town I am a science minded person with an open mind but the present manager who moved in to the area and presumably knew nothing of the story has told me that residents staying at the hotel have reported two sightings in the last year ! .................................................. The ghost is a young girl who was a chambermaid at the hotel a long time ago ! She resides in one of the guest rooms !!

The Cock Inn, March

This is an Elgoods pub and they regularly have Cambridge Bitter on as their real ale. It has two rooms with TV .They have a very large beer garden ,biggest of all the pubs in March I would say . Often have live entertainment like pop groups . Not in the main town centre though.

Georges, March

This pub has recently changed management (Aug 2011) and they have real ale handpumps on . Will be visiting it soon to give a full appraisal.

Bar 23, March

This pub is now (2011) called the Little London Inn and is a Marstons pub.
Has at least 3 hand pumps and regularly changes the range of ales on offer. As when it was the Bar 23 it does food. I think if anything its now better than it was before as Bar 23 . Worth a visit.

Wash and Tope Hotel, Hunstanton

Situated in the centre of Hunstanton.Visited this hotel earlier in the year.
Seves food ,had a nice meal in there.
Had a pint of Strong Arm beer ,a beer that I have not tried for a long time.

Griffin Hotel, March

Situated in the centre of March it was originally a 16th century coaching inn.
It has been a hotel in March for many years and last year was bought by the Baracuda chain and extensively refitted as one of their pubs.
It has very much a wine bar feel about it and is very popular with the young people in March on a Friday and Saturday night.
They have 3 real ales on namely Bombadier,Broadside and I think IPA.
Also lots of shooters.They serve food all day, so its ideal for a lunchtime break for people who are in the town centre.

Acre, March

The George Hotel, Huntingdon

Nicely situated in the centre of the town for a dinner time drink during your lunch hour. A selection of real ales, and a "60s,70s,80, disco on a Friday night if you want to hear pop music from years gone by.
Worth a visit.

White House, Hartlepool

Visited this pub on a trip to see my relatives in Hartlepool.
I seem to remember the building as being a school when I lived in the town ?
I know Weatherspoons have a policy of converting old cinemas into pubs ,eg their venue in Cambridge.
I remember on my visit thinking it was a nice place ,well decked out with comfy sofas and a good range of drinks,including my favourite real ale.

Old Bridge Hotel, Huntingdon

Visited several pubs in the town centre on Saturday,including Cromwells Cafe Bar, Samuelpepys Three Tuns and Market Inn. Didnt stay in any of them for any length of time.
This was by far the best .Three real ales on, nice bar area, friendly staff and comfy seats.
Beer a bit pricy �3 a pint ,but then again it is a hotel.

Hammer and Anvil, March

It closed and did reopen in 2008 but has closed again and appears to be closed for good now!

Bar 23, March

Used to be The Men Of March for many years and then became Bar 23.
I would class it as a wine bar as I think that they only do one real ale .
To far out of town to be used by the Friday night binge drinkers .
In my opinion its ok!

The Saxon, Hartlepool

Used to visit this pub when I used to visit relatives in the town. Was born in Hartlepool Remember they used to do a nice pint of Castle Eden and I think Strongarm was the other ale that they had on .
A nice pub.
