The George Hotel, Bridport

First of all, disregard all previous reviews of the George, because it is under new management after a thorough refurbishment, and reopened in December 2013.
Locals feared that Palmers would spend a fortune on ruining the place but in fact it has been well remodelled and enhanced without spoiling the pub's unique atmosphere. The management have listened to their customers and understand what makes the place work.
The ale is all Palmers, with Copper, IPA and Tally Ho! on tap. Bar space has been reduced with the coffee machine now on the counter, but there are plenty of tables and stools at the "drinking end" with the extended "dining end" having a good atmosphere, and the kitchen is still open to view. The food is excellent and reasonably priced - ranging from sandwiches and simple pub grub to restaurant standard dishes. There is still a separate "snug" which can be a haven on busy nights, and the place hasn't been as busy or as popular for ages. A great start for Julian and Annette and their staff.

The Victory Inn, Brighton

On our first visit to Brighton recently this was the first pub we visited and became our "local" for the rest of our stay. Despite comments in previous posts, we found the bar staff very friendly, and the range of beers excellent and well kept. I got stuck in to the Pin-up Milk Stout and Sarah went for the Citra - both dangerously drinkable. Proper ciders too, and a good menu - the "Famous Fish Finger Sandwich" was delicious and filling, so much so that we had to postpone our planned meal out that evening. The pub is nicely unspoilt, with a panelled public bar and a larger area with more comfy seating. Well worth a visit.

The Sussex Arms, Twickenham

I remember this pub many years ago as a charming old-fashioned 30s style pub with wood panelling, jugs of Bass and pickled eggs. It still has some of that pre-war feeling, but is now an ale-lover's paradise, with umpteen hand pumps and excellent beer. I'm reliably informed the food is first class too - my friends bought a couple of the home-cooked pies to take home. The pub even has a loyalty discount scheme!
