The Hare and Hounds, Sunbury on Thames

I notice there have been no comments for a while. Yesterday I decided to go for the carvery, which is only now on a Sunday, despite what it states on the out of date Fullers website. There were no prices up and whilst relaxed, I found the instruction to just go and find a table not exactly welcoming. As to the carvery, whilst the meat was enjoyable there was a shortage of vegetables, which included peas and sweetcorn. Given the lack of veg initially we returned for more, or in some cases, some items, to be told there are no repeat visits. What sort of carvery is that?! We had forsaken the Toby at Windosr for this as it is nearer, but for 50pence less it was not worth it all. Whilst the Seafarer was drinkable at 3.03 a pint we will be returning to the Toby for Oxford Gold at 2.50 and a much better meal in the future.

The General Roy, Feltham

Called in here a couple of times recently; Youngs Special not too bad on Thursday. Heard from Nick(?) that Ringwood 49er and Adnams Bitter coming up next, so Mad Dog 62 should be happy - I know I am. Rob, I know it's not the same as when you were working there, but it's a different type of pub now. With the new beers I hope more cask fans will get in to try it.

The Hare and Hounds, Sunbury on Thames

Not sure when Shaun ran Shannons. Used to be not too bad in the 1990s when it was the Chariot. Whatever he did there, it's what happens now that counts, and he's certainly turned the Hare and Hounds into a pub I enjoy going to.
