The George and Dragon, Thames Ditton


Pub is badly designed, walk straight in fron the street to on top of the bar, which is two steps from the front door. Creating a "bung up" of people around the door who get the hump if you say excuse me. Also makes the pub look far busier than it actually is.

Its quite expensive, but then this is Thames Ditton, but even so a pint costs more here than any other Shepherd Neame pub within a few miles.

The televisions are on constantly and quite loud. All the chairs and tables have been shoved up against the wall to make way for the televisions, which are tuned to sport regardless. And annoying if your trying to eat

Food is massively overpriced for what it is - basic pub food.

Seen the landlord be rude to people, he doesn't know, after they've paid their money. Telling where they can or can't sit, or in one case waiting till a family had ordered and paid for their food before telling them they can't sit in a certain part of the pub, (but not doing anything before they'd paid when they were sitting in the same bit.)

But at least the bar staff in general are friendly and quick.

The Ragged Trousers, Tunbridge Wells

Really Good.

Great friendly service in a small pleasant venue.

Tried the pint of Larkins for the first time - delicious and recommend the homemade burger, which is a treat and the best burger I've had in a long time.

Venue is small and gets really packed, so if going at lunchtime advise to get there early as there is only a handful of tables.

More of a food place than old fashioned drinking boozer - but if you're in the area well worth a visit.

The Devonshire Arms, Marylebone

I'd give this one a miss.

Looks nice as you walk in but -

Bar staff seemed more interested in horsing around with each other rather than serving anyone, which managed to create a queque at the bar when there were three barstaff behind the counter. One of them decided to go down the other end of the bar and chat to a regular rather than serve anyone.

Beer, though well kept is expensive - �3.45 for a pint of bombardier.

Plenty of other pubs to choose from that might actually want your money.

I wounldn't bother with this one next time I'm in the area.
