The Rising Sun, Berkhamsted

This little pub has the feel of a "local" and is in a lovely spot down by the Grand Union canal, especially if it's a warm spring afternoon - which it was. The pub is clean, tidy nicely done out and the beer was clean and went down nicely, too..

A range of lager and real ale (4) on the bar to choose from plus a hefty 13, or so, proper ciders! 3 on the bar and about 10 in the cellar. The well stocked fridge had some interesting looking bottles (a cider from Normandy for example).

There was a beer fest on in the small garden on the day of my visit which added 10 beers to the normal choice.

The service was efficient and friendy even if you had to ring the bell on the bar for service.

I didn't try the food (or the snuff!) but if the pub is anything to go by it will be fine.

I thought this place was alright! Not many people in for a saturday, but I had a good chinwag and a bit of a laugh - friendly place. Standard beers supplemented by a handpumped ale or two. Smallish place but felt bigger, somehow.

Sport on the telly.

White Lion, Tamworth

Lively, quite noisy pub with a good mix of people in. Seemed like a locals pub with an accent on sport mixed. Noticed a few shoppers in there too. Usual range of beer from the big brewers but also hand pumps to attract the real ale drinkers (mine was very nice!).

The Archivist (see below) decribes the decor better than i ever could!
