The Bell, Kemsing

A very doable local pub of the Greene King ilk, managed by friendly young Irish guy who kept everyone well served. Beer selection still not inspired having three on offer; Greene King IPA, Abbott and one guest beer. The Abbott was in good condition. On the other hand good variety on the menu. I tried a straight forward gammon steak, two eggs and chips which was fine.
Not a destination pub but if you're around the area, worth looking in.

The Rising Sun, Kemsing

Most offbeat, quirky pub I've ever come across. Didn't get a chance to examine the bric-a-brac lying around the ancient, timbered bar but the collection of cats and dogs are still going strong. Looks like parrot is no more. Run by a mother and daughter team who look characters in their own right. They were most welcoming and was chatting away but after a half of decent Abbot ale retreated from the attentions of the most friendly animals back to Kemsing for lunch in the Bell.

Ye Olde George, East Meon

Four of us gathered here on Tuesday for lunch. Food excellent and about four different beers on pump. The only slight hitch was the vegetarian amongst us was served bacon on their plate and on the menu it looked like a veggie choice. Tip: choose the bar area to eat in; we chose to sit in the restaurant part of the pub and were left in splendid isolation while all the action was from the large bar where people were also eating. Staff very friendly and 'mine host' does a great job of jollying along the punters and staff. The pub itself is a classic Tudor Inn with all the oak beams, old fire places you could wish for.
