The Plough, Cobham

Thank you hertz.... i did wonder myself about movewith's identity. I know a couple of the local landlords and none of them think much of the changes made, nor do they think much of the management.......and if you know a few of the local pubs pots/kettle come to mind.....

I've been in again myself, thinking maybe I got the wrong idea. I am now convinced my first impression was right. I'm not going again. And for movewith's benefit, I am considerably younger than the over 55 grumpies he referred to.... i dont need slippers and pipe, nor a zimmer frame ...i was never a fan of some of that particular school of regulars anyway, but they must have spent a small fortune over the years....income I would imagine they now sorely miss. All I know is that what used to be a wonderful old pub now looks like a cross between a laura ashley catalogue and a badly arranged timberyard. And I'm told the rugby on sky is gone...great move, with the heineken cup coming up. Thats a big Fri/Sat/Sun crew who will be going somewhere else.
I wish the owners well - I have no desire to see another pub closed, but I fear the worst. I can only assume they have a great plan none of the rest of us are party to.
If it is still open in six months time I will pop by and try and be objective as to progress. I'm not here to sh*t stir. But for the moment my hard earned beer money will be spent elsewhere

The Running Mare, Cobham

Quite like the new paint job - unlike the Plough down the road. Apart from the odd undesirable lurking about the place, a nice place to go. Two of the bar staff, Jack and Joe (I think) should think about a career on the stage...they'd make a good comedy duo....

The Albert Arms, Esher

Strange place, not unpleasant. Had a great steak, and a few beers. Some very drunk regulars in when I was there, but they weren't much of a nuisance....just a bit lairy. I'm told it can get very busy, although some of its old clientele have apparently moved round the corner to the Wheatsheaf.
