The Surrey Oaks, Newdigate

Yes, that chap should enter a Home for the Bewildered.

'We want the new owners to'.....

I don't agree with anything the 'sawus expert' says and everyone has their own 'interesting beers' - and views on how a pub should be run. By its OWNERS.

Let Nick continue his good work - and if the 'sawus expert' doesn't like it, he should make his expertise available at another pub in the area.

The Ship, Croydon

Gam - the last poster - usually types about closed pubs, or those that may not be trading when he visits.

A very odd habit which, sadly, he has brought to our fine Ship - and one which BITE has been advised of.

In Reigate, the Nutley Hall pub shut about 18 months ago - yet Gam thought it worthy of a review. And the Blue Posts etc. etc. etc.

The Dolphin, Betchworth

The lovely location and character of this pub means that it'll always do well - particularly in the Summer. Youngs also spend a lot of money doing a tasteful refurbishment/extension.

However, its hard to understand why such low calibre management and staff are now in situ - precipitating a downturn in food and beer quality. I've stopped going in - but pass by on my way to the Red Lion.

Rarely is there a place left in the Dolphin's large carpark. The sub 5 rating is accurate; however, the place has the potential to improve - and return to its high ranking of old, as one of the best pubs in East Surrey.
