The Garibaldi, Redhill

Really sad to see the pub boarded up, we can't afford to lose another local asset.

Gamboozler, I really hope you are right and this pub can re-open as a community pub. More power to your elbow, I for one will make sure I visit it on a regular basis going forward if it able to keep trading.

Rack of Ale, Dover

What a cracking bar this place really is. Went in with a group of fellow Bristol Rovers fans before and after our game at Dover and was really impressed. Firstly the range of ales and ciders was extremely good and everything was very well kept. The prices are also very good as well, £3.60 for a pint of 6% Legbender scrumpy is very reasonable.

We had some really good banter with the Dover fans in the bar and the welcome we received from all the staff was simply top class. I have never been in a pub which provides the amount of free food as the Rack. In the afternoon we were treated to pork pies, scotch eggs, nuts, crisps etc in very large quantities. Post match we had plates of lovely snails and followed up with probably half a dozen bags of chips they brought in from the local chippy.

The guys at the Rack are doing a fantastic job, all too often football fans are tolerated rather than really welcomed, however the warm friendly welcome we received and the hospitality was superb.

I can't recommend this place too highly and should I ever be in Dover again this will be without doubt the pub of choice for me. Thank you for looking after us so well, this is the first time I have ever awarded a ten, it is richly deserved.

The Door Hinge, Welling

I can only echo what Lezford has said about this place.

Went on Saturday for pre and post Bristol Rovers v Welling game and loved the place and ended up spending almost fice hours in the place! Pre match the pub was packed out with mostly Rovers fans and some local. Post match it was a mix of Rovers and Welling fans, drinking together and having a good laugh and chat with not the slightest hint of any problems.

It is quirky, especially the small lounge at the back which is more like someone's front room! Also don't get caught out, the pub only has ONE toliet, which did cause some long waits during the pre match spell!! And it is not the largest pub by any means.

From memory there were about five or six ales on and three ciders. The Kent Pale and Hophead I had were on very good form. One of group was loving the Winter Cider, I had a couple of pints of a 6% cider at the end of the evening which were also good, can't for the life of me remember the name of it!

The owner an ex-London cabbie is certainly a character (might not be too everybodys taste), there is no music, no TV and mobile phones very frowned upon, as the numerous mobiles nailed to the wall will testify.

Will certainly visit this pub again if I am in the Welling area, might even make a special trip out to as well. Highly recomended.
