The Plough Inn, Hildenborough

Beautiful old pub, all beams etc. but very foodie. We were just there for a drink. Manged to get somewhere to sit, it's certainly popular and had my first pint of Tonbridge Ale as I like to support local breweries and try ones I haven't had before. It was ok but for the second we reverted back to Harvey's, the tried and trusted favourite and it was good. A good pub with potential but not a great one.

The Rock, Chiddingstone Hoath

I have only ever been an occassional visitor to this pub over many years but will always take any opporunity. It is the classic English pub. I have never eaten there but love the timbers. the brick floors, the Bull on the wall, all of it. Nice atmosphere, Larkins Best and Porter. The other local pubs are also very good but the Castle is very expensive, the Wheatsheaf feels more commercial and I've never found the Greyhound to have the atmoshere. Just my opinion but I consider the Rock to be a lovely pub.

The Village Inn, Caterham

KIlling time so went in. It was 7pm on a Saturday and there were two customers at the bar and several unoccupied acres. The restaurant area was in darkness and clearly closed. There was no real ale just keg John Smiths. The girl behind the bar and the two locals were pleasant and friendly but that didn't make up for the fact the this large pub was deserted, cold and smelt stale. The toilets clearly hadn't see any sort of cleaning for weeks, the smell of pee was overwhelming. The upside being that the nasty smell in the rest of the pub was a breath of fresh air by comparison. We had our one drink and left never to return.
