Crafty Crow, Nottingham

Good bar serving a fine range of ales. Worth a visit if your in town.

26 Jan 2016 11:25

Bunkers Hill Inn, Nottingham

Decent pub with hockey shirts plastered to the ceiling, uninspiring ale choice, but nothing wrong with the quality.

26 Jan 2016 11:24

The Barrel Drop, Nottingham

Good pub, not really a "micro" pub as it is quite big and has piped music. Beer served direct from the cask, all ales tried of good quality. Hard to find, as located up a alleyway.

26 Jan 2016 11:22

Radius Arms, Whyteleafe

Always has a good pint or three/four avaiable. Quality very good, Landlord friendly, overall a good micro pub, and worth a visit.

11 Jan 2016 11:36

The Butchers Arms, Herne

Back as promised. Burning sky was superb.

6 Jan 2016 12:29

Rising Sun, Herne Bay

Nice pub, poor ale quality as the Old Dairy was like vinegar. Shame.

6 Jan 2016 12:28

The Firkin Frog, Herne Bay

Another micro pub with a bit more of a locals feel. All beer of good standard.

6 Jan 2016 12:27

The Divers Arms, Herne Bay

Enjoyed the Sheps winter ale. Decent enough boozer on the sea front. Worth a visit.

6 Jan 2016 12:25

The Bouncing Barrel, Herne Bay

Friendly micro pub just off the High Street. All ales on were tried and all of good quality.

6 Jan 2016 12:24

The Rose Inn, Herne Bay

Good locals pub in the High Street, serving decent Sheps ales.

6 Jan 2016 12:23

Strugglers Inn, Lincoln

Small cosy pub serving quality ale, a must when in the city.

15 Dec 2015 10:02

The Willoughby Arms, Kingston Upon Thames

Like I said in April, if you don't suppport the festivals they will stop. No more festivals planned, St.George's day planned to have themed beers through pumps only.
Still best pub in Kingston!

12 Nov 2015 13:28

The Cock and Bull, Sutton

Why the band saturday nights? I have been to quieter Motorhead gigs. Beer still good!

9 Nov 2015 15:41

Brigantes Bar and Brasserie, York

Always a good choice of well kept ales in this bar. 23 ciders and perries on this visit. Always a must in York and handy for the station.

27 Oct 2015 13:00

The York Brewery, York

Great brewery bar serving the whole York range of ales. friendly staff and good beer. No fruit machines or music, so you can sit and have a decent chat without having your ears blasted. New toilets a good improvement.

27 Oct 2015 12:58

My favourite pub in York. Friendly staff and Great Heck Citra, I will say no more other than a must when in York.

27 Oct 2015 09:41

Great view of the Minster from the garden, and a decent pint of guzzler.

27 Oct 2015 09:38

The Sun, Carshalton

Was in early Saturday with five mates. Ordered five pints of Oakham Bishops farewell, which was superb. We sat at a table by the door, well away from the diners. After 10 minutes a reserved sign was plonked on the table with a "this table is reserved at 5.30" The time was 5.15. The Sun needs to decide if it is a pub or restaurant and clearly state if tables are reserved (which I don't agree with in pubs) long before the due time of arrival. We moved to the Hope and The Sun lost five drinkers money, as we would have stayed for more.

19 Oct 2015 13:51

The Old House, Ightham

Good pub (no sign outside) serving great ales by friendly Landlord.

16 Oct 2015 12:37

The Harbour Arms, Margate

Still best pub (in my opinion) in Margate. Busy and welcoming, managed to get a table outside overlooking the harbour....................................fantastic.

12 Oct 2015 10:50

The Two Halves, Margate

Yet another micro pub opened up and run by a welcoming licensee (Sean) beer is kept in a cool room and is of a good quality. Friendly locals and a nice view (binoculars provided) over the sea and harbour.

12 Oct 2015 10:48

The Turneround, Margate

Visited a few times in the Summer, and found the ale a tad warm and not in the best condition. Visited again on 10/10/15 and beer perfect, in fact best beer of the day. Hopefully teething issues sorted. Two girls serving very chatty and welcoming.

12 Oct 2015 10:38

The Railway Hotel, Cheam

Good couple of pints of ale in pleasant atmosphere.

1 Oct 2015 10:14

Typical micro pub, no music or fruit machines (or lager) run by friendly Governor. Tables down either side of the walls, with bar at far end.
Worth a visit.

13 Jul 2015 10:29

Simon The Tanner, London

Unfortunately arrived here on a really hot day and after a few ales. The beers tried and warm, a Hackney and Adnams were tired tasting, a victim of the hot weather? Staff quick and chatty, maybe just a bad day.

20 Apr 2015 13:18

The Evening Star, Brighton

Decent back street pub, uninspiring ale choice on my visit, but busy on a Saturday night.

29 Sep 2014 15:06

Tankerton Arms, Tankerton

Micro pub on main street. Tables either side with ale served at bottom of room. Superb pint of Mad Cat Pow wow.

29 Sep 2014 15:04

The Old Bank, Sutton

Advertised a beer festival fron 25/09/14, so thought I would pop in and support a local pub.
Asked if there was a copy of the beers that were coming on and was told "no"..................decided on pint of Butcombe Haka, most disgusting, poorly kept beer I have expirienced, warm and very tired, how they managed this in today's age is a mystery. This appears to be a mostly lager sales pub, and if they cannot look after a beer, I would suggest they do not hold a beer festival, I dread to think what state the champion beer of britain was in.

29 Sep 2014 11:05

Trafalgar Freehouse, South Wimbledon

14 Jul 2014 09:49

4 Mar 2013 08:48

Cheltenham Motor Club, Cheltenham

Agree with blue scrumpy, wonderful and friendly club.

Would be shocked if they don't win national club of the year.

4 Mar 2013 08:45

Ye Olde Red Lion, Cheam

Much improved range and quality of beers (Marston range)
popped in on 3 cosecutive days over the Christmas holiday and enjoyed my visits.

8 Jan 2013 08:58

8 Jan 2013 08:55

10 Oct 2012 12:04

Decent boozer, great pint of Hophead, would imagine it gets mobbed dinner times and evenings.

18 Jun 2012 13:18

The Bat and Ball, Boundstone

Attended the beer festival on Saturday 9th June. Good festival with good quality ales, one issue I have is the �5 donation (entrance) for charity. Saw at least three people turn away bacause they only wanted a �, Surely it would have been best to serve them, and have a bucket or a raffle for the charity.
Food also of a good quality, and friendly bar staff.

11 Jun 2012 09:56

27 Mar 2012 12:28

The Ancient Mariner, Hunstanton

Beer tired - what there was available, vegetarian food option rubbish! If you are changing over to a Summer menu, at least have veggie options! If this is what happens when the Landlord is not around for a few day's I hope he doesn't decide on a two week holiday.

28 Nov 2011 10:26

Old fashioned friendly boozer selling good quality Old cottage ales as well as guest beers,

28 Nov 2011 10:22

Honest Lawyer, Scunthorpe

To many ales on for the amount of customers in during the day. Beer average which is a shame as the Guv is trying. Worth a visit.

25 Nov 2011 15:23

Smugglers Den, Morecambe

No idea what this place is like. SHUT at 12.45 on a Saturday afternoon. GBG needs to change the opening time for this place.

Fair play if the Guv can afford to let 12 thirsty people go elswhere.

11 Oct 2011 12:13

The Palatine, Morecambe

Good ale served in a friendly bar, best place for a decent ale in Morcambe.

10 Oct 2011 11:42

The Cock and Bull, Sutton

Had a great couple of pints of the red fox, as my original comment some time ago, can be inconsistent with quality of beer. I would say this is now the best pub in Sutton.

3 Oct 2011 12:20

The Corn Dolly, Bradford

Top pub, best of the pubs visited.

26 Sep 2011 16:04

The Prince of Wales, Newport

Good quality ale served (3) but an uninspiring choice, as they are tied!

16 Sep 2011 12:22

Wheatsheaf Hotel, Newport

Ok place, decent pint of Fugglededum. Seems friendly enough. basic no frills grub served.

16 Sep 2011 12:21

The Willoughby Arms, Kingston Upon Thames

More good news on this superb boozer.

Beer festival planned for the whole of October!!

5 Sep 2011 12:23

The Fortescue, Mutley Plain

Good to see Summerskills beers on, rarely see them in London.
Decent enough pub, efficient bar staff.

19 Aug 2011 12:34

The Thistle Park Tavern, Plymouth

Disappointed with beer quality, coming up cloudy.
Bar staff friendly enough, will try again if in town.

19 Aug 2011 12:31

The Dolphin, Plymouth

Good little boozer selling high quality ales, Bass and Betty Stoggs direct from the cask!
Friendly locals and Landlord.

19 Aug 2011 12:29

The Evening Star, Brighton

In on 9th August and as good as ever!
Dark Star Citra was outstanding.

Shutting for refurb on 14th for 1 week I beleive.

11 Aug 2011 12:29

The Willoughby Arms, Kingston Upon Thames

Was in for the first AFC Wimbledon game on Saturday.

Crouch Vale Brewers Gold superb, had to have a few more after the game.

This pub should be a lot more busy than this.


8 Aug 2011 12:15

King Harry's Bar (Glenbrook Hotel), Shanklin

Good pint of Island Yachtsman and a red squirrel spotted at the feeder in the garden.

3 Aug 2011 14:54

The Cross Keys, Covent Garden

Good little boozer with Brodies ales. A little dark if you want to read a paper over your pint. Good efficient and friendly Barman behind bar. Worth escaping the hustle and bustle of Covent Garden. Good value food served also.

4 Jul 2011 12:27

The Harp, Covent Garden

Undoubtably a great pub, just mobbed on Saturday afternoon.
Good pint of Summer Solstice.

4 Jul 2011 12:24

The Lord Moon Of The Mall, Whitehall

Wonderful pint of Pride of York on 30/06/11.
Went to the loo, came back and it had gone!

If only they were this efficient in serving me.

1 Jul 2011 12:21

The Prince Of Wales, Cheam

Beer quality now very good along with the food. Decent pub.

17 Jun 2011 15:54

The Woolpack, Banstead

Good Sheps pub with two guest beers, all of good quality. Beer fest August bank holiday may be worth a visit. Food good, but not much for vegetarians.

17 Jun 2011 15:51

Sheffield Tap, Sheffield

Good range of well kept Thornbridge ales, as well as a wide range of foreign beers in bottles.

I could think of a lot worse places to wait for a train.

26 May 2011 14:42

Harlequin, Sheffield

Another good pub! Good ale selection, and pub quite big inside.

24 May 2011 12:29

The Fat Cat, Sheffield

Gus, you must have picked a bad day. Found pub friendly and welcoming. Beers constantly changing, all of great quality.

24 May 2011 12:24

The Kelham Island Tavern, Sheffield

Top pub, top beer. Desevedly popular,

24 May 2011 12:22

The Ramsden Arms, Blackpool

Agree with last post. Well worth a visit. well kept ales and friendly staff.

9 May 2011 15:36

Acorn, Birchington

Beer fine, but uninspiring choice.
If you are going to eat allow three hours, painfully slow service.

3 May 2011 12:15

The Radnor Arms, Coleshill

Good pub with their own ales!

All in good condition and tasty.

Hope to visit again.

26 Apr 2011 12:18

The Village Inn, Nailsworth

Paid a visit on Monday 25th April.
Not sure what has happened since my last visit!

All the beers bar one were cloudy and not in good condition.

Shame, as I really like this pub, hopeing this is a one off.

26 Apr 2011 12:16

The Live and Let Live, Cambridge

Goog back street local with a varied choice of ales, all well kept.

12 Apr 2011 12:12

The Cambridge Blue, Cambridge

Good pub, good beer, good guv.

Intresting choice of bar snacks.

12 Apr 2011 12:09

The King Charles I, Kings Cross

Don't bother going in on a Saturday, one beer, Theakstons!
Snotty but pretty barmaid!

12 Apr 2011 10:33

Trafalgar Freehouse, South Wimbledon

I have been asked by Hoppyal to clarify the fact he loves Ellie as a friend.

I hope this clears any misunderstanding.

12 Apr 2011 08:27

The Empress, Cambridge


Not just football supporters, there was a few local idiots, non more so than the idiot wearing the vest!
Agree it was a shame as it spoilt a decent drink.
Good ale from local brewery, nothing the pub could have expected. I would expect in general a very decent boozer.

11 Apr 2011 16:08

Trafalgar Freehouse, South Wimbledon

Also in on 3rd April for the third time is as many weeks. The beer has been excellent on all occassions, especially the Art Brew Lemon! Found the beer was becoming a little inconsistent, but seems to be back to its best. Good pub with friendly locals.

Hoppyal loves Ellie!!!!!!

6 Apr 2011 15:44

The No 2 Refreshment Rooms (Under the Clock), Cleethorpes

dissapointed in this bar, after reading the write up in the GBG.
Beer uninspiring and lack of atmosphere

7 Mar 2011 15:49

Willy's Pub and Brewery, Cleethorpes

Willys original good but on the cold side. Other guest beers not 100%.
Great idea early Friday with vouchers for beer, certainly got the crowds in.
Saturday night a bit to loud for me with the DJ.
It is the best pub in Cleethorpes! Says it all really.

7 Mar 2011 12:10

The Edgar Wallace, Temple

Good pub, best to go early as can get crowded.
8 pumps dispesing an ever changing range.
Had the Skinners tackle and Orkney Raven. Both in great condition.

24 Feb 2011 12:31

The Victoria Inn, Rugby

Atomic ales good, as was the quality and choice of the guest ales.
If ever in Rugby again, will pop in.

21 Feb 2011 16:03

The Alexandra Arms, Rugby

Good little boozer. Local ale Petit Blonde very good. Worth a visit.

21 Feb 2011 16:02

The Robin Hood, Sutton

Jinxed, I agree.

Not the pub it once was, food overpriced and avarage, beer not 100%.

It's not rocket science!!

16 Feb 2011 13:47

The Will Adams, Gillingham


Intimidating atmosphere? You sure you was in the right pub?

10 Feb 2011 12:15

The Wheatsheaf, Gateshead

Wonderful old boozer serving great Big Lamp ales. Jim the Landlord makes all welcome. Cheers Jim, hope to see you next season.

7 Feb 2011 12:21

The Boathouse Inn, Wylam

Great choice of ales all looked after well. Good boozer which I would love as my local.

7 Feb 2011 12:20

The Railway Hotel, Cheam

Locale beer fest on from 27/01/11 to 30/01/11
Should be worth a visit

24 Jan 2011 13:04

The Maltings, York

Good pub, beer and service.

As below, the only thing is it gets busy.

This is only an observation, this proves they are doing what they do well.

23 Dec 2010 11:18

The Wheatsheaf, Gateshead


Beware the 28th/29th January 2011!
Get the beers in!

22 Dec 2010 13:27

Britannia Bar Cafe, Rochester

Constantly good pub/bar.

Beer always good, friendly staff and a little gem of a garden when the weather permits.

21 Dec 2010 14:36

Pivo Cafe Bar, York

Excellent pint of Marble. Only downside is the walk up the stairs to the loos.

6 Dec 2010 10:54

The Lion And Lobster, Brighton

Lovely pint of Hophead in a well run and busy pub.
Highly reccommended

30 Nov 2010 12:18

The Creek Inn, Peel

Best pub on the Island

4 Nov 2010 15:54

The Willoughby Arms, Kingston Upon Thames

Well done Rick on a great beer festival.
Beer excellent!!!!
Roll on the next one.

1 Nov 2010 13:14

Queens Arms, Basingstoke

Shame to see this pub is for sale.
Was in Saturday, beer choice and quality perfect.
Spoke to the Landlady and understand the reasons behind the sale, hope she can find someone that keeps the pub as good as it is now.

25 Oct 2010 12:35

The Willoughby Arms, Kingston Upon Thames

Was in here last night (29/09/10) Twickenham Grandstand and naked ladies plus Shere drop and Greene King IPA.
Beer fantastic quality as usual, why is this pub not used more?
Beer festival arranged for Halloween, put it in your diary.

30 Sep 2010 12:27

The Alexandra Arms, Kettering

Excellent boozer, friendly guv behind bar.
Beers top notch (all 14 of them)
Handled a group of us on Saturday afternoon brilliantly with no warning.
Next time in Kettering this is the only pub to visit.

7 Sep 2010 12:22

The Marble Arch, Manchester

What a great pub!
Marble beers up to their usual high standards.
Guest beers fantastic, staff helpful.
Great surroundings, no your not drunk, the floor does slope.
Everything you need in a pub.

18 Aug 2010 12:12

The Will Adams, Gillingham

Popped in on Saturday 7th August, and was greeted by Oakleaf IPA, Wold Top bitter and one other which I cannot remember. Quality of ale superb as usual!
Easily best pub in Gillingham, why is it not packed every day?

9 Aug 2010 12:30

The Cock and Bull, Sutton

I like the pub, and the staff have always been decent.
It's just the beer quality, that at times, lets them down.

8 Jul 2010 12:26

The Hope, Carshalton

Agree with Hoppyal regarding people refusing to move from the bar, which can make it difficult to get served.
Always seems to be a weird smell in the pub (carpets or coming from the cellar, where there has been an issue with water coming in)
I have also been moved from the table I was sitting on due to a private function, which is an inconvenience if there is nowhere else to sit.
Beer quality usually good, a great improvemnet to what the pub was before the friendly landlady took over.

7 Jul 2010 15:57

Royal Oak Inn, Staffhurst Wood

Larkins and food of a good quality.
Pub itself OK, with nice garden!

6 Jul 2010 12:51

The Wheatsheaf, Gateshead

Excellent old fashioned pub, wonderful landlord.
Great Big Lamp beers.
Reccommended highly.

18 Jun 2010 16:04

The Rose and Crown, Halstead

One of the best pubs around this area of Kent.
Beer always 1oo%, and a regular outlet for Larkins.
I hope the owner has a rethink, as Bob has done a excellent job after taking over from Joy.
A sad day indeed if Bob leaves!!

18 Jun 2010 12:44

The Northern Belle, Margate

Best pub in Margate, beer always well kept (Sheps) friendly landlord.

15 Jun 2010 12:23

The White Rose Hotel, Askrigg

Pleasent enough bar.
A little dissapointed with the White Rose ale from Yorkshire Dales, it was much to early to be put on.
Women behind bar refused to change it, although it had the consistiancy of tar.
The other Yorkshire Dales beer was 100%

9 Jun 2010 15:43

The Temple Hotel, Matlock Bath

Good pub with good quality ale.
friendly staff who seemed to know their stuff.
The pump clips around the place shows the great ales that pass through.

9 Jun 2010 13:42

The Railway Hotel, Cheam

Much improved local. Beer quality very good, but why the hour wait between beers?

26 May 2010 09:27

The Land of Liberty, Peace and Plenty, Heronsgate

Not the greatest pub by a long way. But the beer quality is always 100%

26 May 2010 08:42

The Jolly Tanners, Staplefield

Good beer and food,
Shame about the locals "I live in this village, what r u doing in my pub attitude".

29 Oct 2009 08:29

The Willoughby Arms, Kingston Upon Thames

Been using this pub on most Saturday's for about three years. Not once have I had a bad pint, which makes this the most consistant pub for quality beer.
Saturday's crowd are welcoming as is the charasmatic Landlord.
This pub comes highly reccomended.

23 Dec 2008 12:54

The Cock and Bull, Sutton

Sometimes beer good, sometimes beer indifferent.

22 Dec 2008 15:14

The Wenlock Arms, Hoxton

Beer good Saturday 13th, and pub busy, so why oh why the rubbish music?
