The Black Duck, Warbleton

Visited the premises in its former guise as the Warble Inn Tun. Its a shame that closed but we all need to retire at some point and the landlord decicded to hang up his apron following his wife's death some time earlier. So, to this refurbished pub for a fresh look. I wasn't disappointed, It has been cleverly and skillfully given makeover but,for me, it still looks and feels like a proper pub. More emphasis on food than I remember but not a gastropub takeover. Great food, well cooked, well priced and all washe down with the local Harveys. I'm happy with the change.

A proper pint
A proper pork pie
A proper pub.
Make your way there this instance.

Ye Olde Greene Manne, Rickmansworth

Now refurbished re-opened as a Vintage Inn. Still a Mitchell and Butler outfit but this place is now very much food led.(There is an Ember Inn - The Gate - not far away.) However, although the previous team appear to have been booted, the new staff are friendly and welcoming. Went with some Aussie friends visiting who commented favourably on the style and decor - perhaphs a reflection of their home pub style. Food menu quite acceptable and the real ale afficionados are not dissapointed except maybe by limited choice. Dearer than before but not grossly excessive like some so called gastropubs. In the current economic climate I await the outcome of this brand change though this area is more well heeled that some town centre places.
