The White Hart Inn, Margaretting Tye

I'm a big fan of the White Hart - a great pub to drive or cycle to, with a great beer garden. Beer selection is generally very good, plus they serve Aspalls cider. Food is good too if you are interested in eating; staff are very helpful too.
Decor is nice inside, much better than it's old 'tatty' look; it's also nice to sit outside on a good day, as long as the wind's not blowing the wrong way!

The annual beer festival is excellent, well organised, well stocked and not too packed with people. Often has live music too.

The Hoop, Stock

This is one of my locals so I am quite a regular visitor. Beers at The Hoop can be a little touch and go (see previous reviews about the variety available).

The beer festival in May always has a good selection of beers, however barrels are being changed all the time so it's often difficult to get the same one twice. Beer festival used to be great, but has become a bit over-commercialised now - absolutely packed out with non-locals and people who don't seem to be able to handle their drink, and the pub really seems to take advantage of this. Barbecue prices at Beerr festival time can also be ridiculous - they were so bad a couple of years ago, everyone started to sneak in their own food!

Food in the pub is ok but it can be a bit hit and miss - had a risotto last time, and it was TINY. Good atmosphere in the pub during non-festival times, and most of the staff are friendly.
