The New Inn, Wakefield

Staying at the Cedar Court Lodge Hotel the other side of the motorway, we found this pub easy to find, friendly locals and an excellent pint of Skipton's Copper Dragon.

They do traditional pub food, but as we didn't visit it until late in the evening can't comment on how good that was. Failing that I did notice a chippy on the otherside of the road. (shut on Good Friday evening)

Well worth stopping at if needing a rest of Junction 39 of the M1

The Old George, Stony Stratford

Pleasant enough pub - no sign of the landlord (unless he's changed since the last reviews?) decent pint of brainstorm. One of 3 real ales on handpump.

The Duke Of Wellington, Stony Stratford

No real ales meaning a pint of Cider instead, but friendly enough locals and I won a game of pool so not all bad

Miners Arms, Pontrhyd-y-groes

Based ourselves here when on the Mid Wales League hop (Football)

Excellent Hancocks and Felinfoel ales well kept and whilst we weren't hungry and didn't eat, the food did look excellent and the portions plentiful.

The accomodation too was excellent value for money and as for the drive through the Elan valley to Rhayader the next morning - that alone is reason enough to want to go back.

The White Lion, Fewcott

As promised I was back and if anything the beer was in even better nick than last time.

An ideal stop off point between the M40 and A34.

The White Lion, Bridgnorth

Sometimes, there is no justice in the world. If only I'd known about this pub earlier I would have gone to Bridgnorth by Public Transport rather than driving from Hampshire. (& No I didn't go to Bridgnorth just for a pub crawl!)

Even allowing for the fact there was a beer festival there this weekend the selection was immense with the Salopian Lemon Dream well worth the trip on its own.

Staff friendly and knowledgeable and the food looked fairly well priced (for a change).

If in Salopia - A must visit.

The Three Judges, Partick Cross

Was recommended this pub as a must visit by some mates when I went up to Glasgow for a weekend.

Decent beer selection although come 6pm on Sunday evening alot of them were running out fast.

Staff were friendly enough allowing me to try before I bought and whilst it is worth visiting, as others have mentioned The Bon Accord in the City Centre I found to be a much better pub.

Opposite Kelvinhall Subway Station or 10 mins walk from Partick transport interchange.

Goose On Union Street, Glasgow

Decent enough pint of Marstons EPA at £1.49 a pint.

Not a place I'd like to spend the night in but harmless enough to start out if you are out for the evening.

8 Aug 2011 18:27

The Bon Accord, Glasgow

Just off the far end of Sauchiehall Street and the nearest decent pub to my BNB.

In Glasgow for just 3 nights but every night I ensured I spent at least 2 hours in here.

Absolutely fantastic pub with plenty of selection on the handpumps. (11) and that's without the selection of bottled beers and wheatbeers.

I don't normally eat in pubs but made an exception on one occasion with a smoked sausage baguette which was in fact 2 baguettes and a large plate of salad too.

If you are in central Glasgow, I can't recommend it highly enough.

The Sir Loin Of Beef, Southsea

Another excellent night in this pub.

8 Ales available and Jack Ratt Scrumpy. - I'm not normally a lover of Porters but the Titanic Brewery Plum Porter was outstanding.

I promise not to leave it so long before my next visit

Queens Head, Newbiggin by the Sea

Been 7 years since the previous posting but I visited when in the area last week.

Pleased to say the beer is still in top form. Mordue's 5 bridges in particular going down well.

Locals were friendly insisting that anyone and everyone in the pub had some of the buffet one of them had laid on for his birthday.

7 Jun 2011 07:56

Joiners Arms, Morpeth

An absolute pleasure to cross the other side of the bridge from the Town centre.

6 real ales - the 4 I tried were outstandingly kept, friendly locals. A shame when I had to leave

The Bull Inn, Chichester

Fantastic pub opposite the entrance to the cattle market car park. 700 Portsmouth-Brighton bus stops right outside which was handy!

6 hand pumps and plenty of bottled beers available too. Didn't try one of the O'Hagans Sausages but there were plenty available in exotic flavours.

Landlord and staff very friendly and welcoming with free Strawberries on the bar at lunchtime.

Did try the locally made pork scratchings with a pint of Darkstar's Hophead and they were spot on (as well as plentiful)

I know where I'm drinking next time I'm in Chi.

The Newport Inn, Braishfield

Those who complain about the state of the garden and decor are missing the point.

That is one of the things that make this the pub that it is. Original and not looking like millions of other pubs.

Sea-farers was well kept and the Cheese sandwich was more than great value for money. Those having a ploughmans were treated to what appeared to be a loaf of bread for the roll.

23 Apr 2011 18:43

The Cuckoo Inn, Hamptworth

Gorgeous weather today and although not on the way to Romsey for Football later, well worth the visit and a seat in the back garden for contemplation.

Beer festival going on at the moment, a mystery beer which they invite you to guess (Very similar in taste to Sharps Doom Bar)

Had their usual wide range of ales, Mate had a Halcyon Daze which he enjoyed.

Looking forward to my next visit already.

23 Apr 2011 18:40

The White Harte, Bridgeyate

Arrived early afternoon and relatively busy. Quick service, average pint of Butcombe Best. Others beers were Courage Best and London Pride.

Not brilliant but not rubbish either and a good stop off point between the football at Longwell and Oldland.

23 Apr 2011 10:57

Old Bank, Keynsham

Visited before football yesterday.

Well kept Exmoor Gold and Sharps Doom Bar, friendly locals who remembered us from our last and only previous visit in August 2010.

Good selection of ciders albeit mainly bottled that kept my mate happy too.

If in Keynsham, well worth a visit.

23 Apr 2011 10:55

The Hyde Tavern, Winchester

Excellent pub on the way between the railway station and £chester city FC.

Plenty of choice beer wise and a pub well worth visiting when in Winchester.

19 Feb 2011 20:30

The Wykeham Arms, Winchester

Hidden behind Winchester college on a back street.

Old school desks to sit at with a slot for coin donations which were to be given to the cathedral if so desired. A mobile phone free zone.

Excellent drop of Cheriton Pots.

19 Feb 2011 20:25

The Black Boy, Winchester

Plenty of beers to choose from. I had Bowmans Swift one.

Lots of little nooks and crannies in the pub which was busy for a Saturday lunchtime.

19 Feb 2011 20:22

The Stag, Kimberley

Brilliant pub, approx 5 miles off the M1 and on direct Nottingham-Eastwood bus route (behind Kimberley Town FC)

Excellent pint of Copper Dragon and huge rolls also on sale. I will be visiting again when needing a pit stop.

15 Feb 2011 06:18

Glassblower, Castleford

With Spoons, you know what you are going to get.

In the area on a bit of a crawl and this Spoons had a bigger selection of ales than that in Pontefract.

15 Feb 2011 06:13

The Barnsley Oak, South Elmsall

Decent 2 room pub. Cask John Smiths and Timothy Taylor Golden Best on tap, but as the driver I didn't try them.

15 Feb 2011 06:11

The Anchor, Sevenoaks

Nice drop of Tunbridge Wells brewery Dipper.

Friendly landlord, such a shame that there was hardly anyone in the place.

15 Feb 2011 06:09

The White Lion, Fewcott

A welcome stop just off the M40 and 1/2 mile from Ardley United FC. Welcoming hosts who allowed us to sample the beers before buying.

Beer was excellent too and after only being in the pub for 45 minutes as we needed to get back to Portsmouth for a mate to get the last train back to Worthing, I felt guilty that we couldn't stay any longer.

Will be back.

15 Feb 2011 06:07

The Hearty Goodfellow, Southwell

After being given a couple of tips and finding both pubs shut, it was 2 doors away from the Bramley Apple that we went to this pub. What a shame I was the driver.

Beer heaven. with 7 different handpumps and extensive Bottled Belgium beer selection to choose from.

The Wine Vaults, Southsea

first time back in this bar for a few years and alas the beer was poorly kept and we couldn't get out quick enough

25 Sep 2009 00:54

Leopold Tavern, Southsea

First time I'be been in this pub for a few years and my it has changed. Excellent choice of 6 different real ales on sale today, all of which were well kept. Note to self to not leave it so long before going back.

25 Sep 2009 00:51

The Yew Tree, Lower Wield

Very much out in the middle of nowhere but friendly locals and staff and a decent drop of Keystones Sola made the effort worthwhile.

12 Sep 2009 21:30

The Hinton Arms, Cheriton

Not interested in the food, but it was a gorgeous afternoon, not a cloud in the sky and as for the beer. The Hedgerow (Bowmans) was probably the best beer I've tasted all year.

12 Sep 2009 21:28

The Three Horseshoes, Bighton

With the mighty Fareham playing at Alresford today, I took the opportunity to visit some out of the way pubs.

What a treat this place is, a proper pub. Whilst I appreciate that if it wasn't for the food alot of country pubs would close down, the food was definately 2nd to the beer here and the pub was more the better for it.

3 different types of Palmers available today.

I will be coming back

12 Sep 2009 21:26

The Wheatsheaf, Shedfield

great pub and excellent selection of very well kept beers and very competitively priced too.

The Flowerpots Perridge Pale is a must

19 Jul 2009 04:55

The Red Lion, Southwick

Decent country pub which like many others mainly relies on food sales to keep going.

Whilst I didnt try the food, there was a small selection of real ales - Fullers London Pride & Seafarers on tap and the latter a decent drop and well kept.

19 Jul 2009 04:51

The Barley Mow, Southsea

this has changed loads since i was last there on 2000.7 ales on handpump and 2 ciders.

Only reason i left was the price. £,3.20pint, i thought i was in london

6 Jun 2009 18:27

The Barrel of Beer, Beer

Finally got round to having a beer in Beer and chose this one.

2 exe Valley beers on tap
Otter Beer
Anstells Mild as well

I hate seafood with a passion but from the people coming in an eating, it would seem to be renowned for it, so if that's your cup of tea, then this pubs for you

12 May 2009 00:44

The Three Horseshoes Inn, Great Parndon

When I was a nip of a lad, this was the local where my elder brothers used to go and drink and I used to be able to sneak in for the odd glass of lemonade.

Came back 25 years since leaving Harlow yesterday and had my first pint in there.

Superb pint of Pendles Witches Brew with a couple more real ales on sale. The food was top notch.

Excellent pub and well worth the wait for my 1st pint there. Hopefully it wont be 25 years until the next one!

19 Nov 2006 21:52

Cock Inn, Harlow

Not sure whether there are now 2 pubs called the Cock in Harlo as the one I visited last night was excellent and the beer was top class.

19 Nov 2006 21:48

The Isambard Kingdom Brunel, Portsmouth

Last Friday lunchtime - no beer whatsoever and their lack of it seems to be a regular occurrence.

14 Nov 2006 19:56

Lord Arthur Lee, Fareham

The bloke who drove his car through it a few years ago did Wetherspoons a favour.

Still poor with the beer badly kept

14 Nov 2006 19:54

The Hole in The Wall, Southsea

Visit this pub and you wont need to go anywhere else ever again.

This has everything you could want in a pub and more.

I'm lucky that I live round the corner from it, but I have never ever heard anyone ever have a bad word to say about the place.

14 Nov 2006 19:50

The Elm Tree Inn, Hightown

Didn't have any food but a decent pub with some excellent real ales in, most of which didn't come from the South of England and had to be tried.

Slightly of the beaten track but well worth investigating further.

14 Nov 2006 19:44

The London Tavern, Poulner

Cracking pub just of the main road through Poulner set back slightly from the road. Excellent pub with friendly host and locals.

2nd best pint of Ringwood best, I had all day in the best pub.

14 Nov 2006 19:41

The White Hart, Poulner

I thought this was an excellent place to start our pub
crawl on Saturday. Cracking pint of best and one I will definately be coming back to next time I'm in Ringwood

14 Nov 2006 19:40

The Hunters Lodge, Ringwood

Decent pint of badger.

Old bloke wandering around the bar with an Axe in his hand was a bit offputting though.

14 Nov 2006 19:38

Railway Hotel, Ringwood

Agree with Creek about the beers condition,

Thought it were a tad overpriced too.

Liked the actual pub itself

14 Nov 2006 19:36

The Lamb Inn, Ringwood

Can't disagree with Nick Davies comments.

Although the bar football table was enjoyable

14 Nov 2006 19:35

The Star Inn, Ringwood

Egg chasing on tv in the packed back bar whilst the front closed as all reserved wont have me rushing back here again.

14 Nov 2006 19:34

Finn M'Couls, Ringwood

Don't particuarly like the fake Irish bit take on the pub but it served a decent pint.
