The Boars Head, Poynton

Having been born down the road from "The Boar's Head" in 1955 I am somewhat acquainted with this fine ale house. My first visit was in my early teens when farmer Potts took a few of us workers into the tap room after a days hay making. My wage was half a crown and a pint of Boddington's Bitter.
I am now resident in Tyneside but often revisit my old haunt. My most recent visit was on 4/4/14 when I sampled the Black Sheep and Whale IPA. Both beers were on top form. The tap room has been treated to an excellent refurbishment with a roaring log burner and smart furniture. The welcome from staff and locals was warm and friendly. So, I am very pleased to report that all is well at my old stomping ground.

The Antelope, Upavon

7th Feb 2014......Unfortunately, it would appear that Wadworths and the ex-landlord did not see eye to eye and this once good pub is closed. Other Wadworth's pubs in the area eg. The Woodbrige, have also closed.They are also dispensing with their draught horses and stables, so, I smell a corporate change by this brewery.Shame.

The Ship, Upavon

The Ship is a gem. Excellent selection of local ales and real ciders together with superb, home cooked food. I work in the area but actually live in the North East and have found that the locals extend a warm welcome to everyone. Beers from the West Berkshire brewery are my particular favourite here but the selection is always varied and of good quality. If in doubt, the friendly staff will give you a taster ! Well worth a visit.
