Angel Inn, Dukinfield

Called in here last year while in Dukinfield visiting my daughter and family. I had passed it several times and it looked OK from the outside so I gave it a try. It was very busy with people enjoying a meal with their drink but I still managed to find a place to sit. There was a good choice of cask ales and those I tried were well kept. From the pump clips around the walls it looks like the beers are regularly changed and a wide variety has been on offer. The prices were good too but coming from London anywhere except Surrey looks cheap.

The Stratford Haven, West Bridgford

No doubt about it, this is a proper English pub.
Called in here a couple of years back when I was staying in Nottingham for my daughter's wedding. The hotel we were in had no cask beers so I looked for the nearest pub and this was it. My mum, my wife and I walked to The Haven and when we walked through the door they were stunned at how basic it was. I think they were a bit scared it might be a rough house. I reassured them that with the selection of beers on offer this was a place where people were more interested in what they drank and the quality of it than how much of it they managed to gulp down. I told them rowdy behaviour was unlikely but that good natured fun was probably guaranteed. With seats at a premium we found a spot at the bar and propped it up for a couple of hours. It was quite noisy but with lots of conversation, not shouting or loud music. All the beers we tried were on form, the bar staff and other punters were polite and friendly. I got both my mum and wife drinking pints of proper beer and thoroughly enjoying it. They both loved the evening saying it was a great experience. My mum especially, she'd got to her 80's without experiencing the wonderful range of flavours that you can get from malt and hops.

The Greyhound, Bromley

Went in yesterday with family, eight of us in all including 2 children. Food cooked well and served very quick, all of us able to eat together without waiting. Beer good as ever, rarely get a dodgy pint in "Spoons". Eight meals with drinks £60. My mum said her fish and chips was better than Harry Ramsdens premierre store. Overall this is one of the better Wetherspoons, although all but a tiny minority are perfectly OK.
