Profile information

Not much to say, but just so you know where I'm coming from with my reviews, I usually only go to pubs that serve real ale, I like proper home cooked food and prefer older pubs to newer ones. Any pub with a football table will pick up a few points. Things that will immediately make me dislike a pub are music played loudly enough that you have to shout into people's earholes to make yourself heard, lack of seating, bottled lager being the only beer, surly and unhelpful staff and 'entertainment'.

The Brocket Arms, Ayot St. Lawrence

A belting pub this. Beautiful old buildng in a lovely setting with a large garden at the rear. Great range of beers. Staff all very friendly. The food, given the prices, is much better than average. The restaurant can be a bit souless when it is quiet but a larger crowd of diners can make it come alive quickly. Is a lot busier generally in the summer months and on the folk night (which I think is the first Tuesday of each month but I may be wrong). The big open fires in the winter are fantastic.

A quick word about the accommodation as well - lovely, well appointed, clean rooms - great value for money.

The Crooked Chimney, Welwyn Garden City

Been here a number of times over the last year or two and it is a perefectly pleasant place to visit. Nicely laid out with comfortable furnishings, a decent if unspeactular set of real ales, a bit of old world charm etc.etc. But over the last couple of months or so me and my colleagues have visited twice for food (once at lunchtime and once in the evening) and both times the unpleasant, surly, aggressive attitudes of the manager and bar & kitchen staff has been appalling. This isn't the bext pub in the area even though it is generally OK, but I (my colleagues) will not be visiting it again. Ever.

Golden Lion, Soho

forgot to say - I returned one pint because the beer in the cask was on the turn - it was more Sarsons Malt Vinegar than beer - and it was replaced happily and without question by the bar maid which is lot better than you'd get in a lot of places.
