Imperial Arms, West Brompton

Recently become a gay bar. When I was last in there, it was mostly empty, but the few who were in were as high as kites. My friend & I sat down to try & enjoy our drinks, but they were spoiled by the embarrassing display put on by one of the bars managers. Skipping around, running in and out of the pub and playing awful sub-standard dance music so loud that it could be heard half way up the Lille Road. The cider wasn't very well kept either. An admirable decision to try & turn this notoriously dismal pub into a gay bar (much needed in the area, since the great close down of all the Earls Court bars). Unfortunately, if this is the best they can do then they really shouldn't have bothered. Avoid!

The Blue Boar, Aldbourne

One of the nicest pubs I have ever been in. As a regular visitor for over 30 years I have always found the staff go the extra mile in making your visit an enjoyable one. A wide selection of beers & ciders are kept well & the food is delicious. In 1971 Aldbourne & the Blue Boar was used as a location in the BBC series Doctor Who & as a result fans often flock to the village to see the various locations. .

Chase Gate, Wedge Mill

Having memories of this pub through its various incarnations over the years I decided to pay the Chase Gate a visit for Sunday dinner. Awful! The place has now become a kind of licensed McDonalds, with screaming kids and shouting parents taking up practically every table. A typically unimaginative menu which led to bland and boring food. When you ask for a steak to be cooked medium it really shouldn't come back cremated. The beer was OK and the staff were pleasant enough but the atmosphere is completely ruined by the constant howls of bored children followed by the ever present roars of snarling parents who really should know better than to take kids to a pub in the first place.
