The Black Rabbit, Offham

Lovely, well kept Tanglefoot.
Service dire, food, school dinners. Fabulaous location but ruined by Hall
& Woodhouses corporate policy. This place should be "owner driver" serving locally sourced food cooked to order, not deep freeze - microwave cardboard!

The Hollytree, Walberton

The "For Sale" sign is now up and local hearts are heavy. Surely whoever buy this great pub will keep it going. Although it could be worse, Greene King might get their grubby little hands on it!!! - then no Harveys, no home cooked food but better than cluere I suppose. A big thanks to the lady wo has worked so hard to make this the pub it is

The Golden Lion, Southwick

I managed to get to this lovely pub in historic Southwick today. It was the first time of opening since the closure some 15 months ago. Food gets under way in about 10 - 14 days time. The Oakleaf Porter was spot on, so good to see a pub re-opening during a time of so many closures. Well done Southwick brewery!

The Ship Inn, South Harting

Had a great pint of Dark Star Hophead here yesterday, then a swift half of Palmers Best. Both beers were served in tip-top condition and at just the right temperature. The ham, eggs & chips were just the ticket. This pub is an unpretentious and homely place to visit, well done The ship and thank you.

The Gribble Inn, Oving

As long as this pub continues to brew on the premises I don't mind who runs it. Great beers here, the ones not brewed in Blandford that is, it was Hall & Woodhouse that put the bland in Blandford!!

The Kings Arms, Arundel

An ale drinkers gem. Not the most comortable of pubs though but the landlord is great, best pint in Arundel.

The Maypole Inn, Yapton

Great Arundel Mild here, got talking to a bloke who has been drinking here since 1947. A real ale lovers paradise.

The Bridge Inn, Amberley

Great pint of Harveys here, consistently good. Landlord is very friendly. Perhaps he will stock Harveys Old in the winter ???

The Brunswick Inn, Derby

A spot on ale lovers pub, just wish I could get to Derby more often.

The Gardeners Arms, Lewes

If Carlspewk made pubs they would probably balls it up. The Gardeners however is a drinkers paradise, the Dark Star spot on. Great company & atmosphere, wish I lived nearer Lewes.

The Coach and Four, Wilmslow

Food shyte, beers too cold, staff good, accomodation great

24 Oct 2009 15:37

The Star Inn, Crowlas

Fantastic ales, all served brlliantly at the right temperature, drinking heaven. No Cask Marque, freezing cold beer here just spot on, fully flavoured quality beer

The Star Inn, St Just

The best pub in the area, great chat, friendly locals. Like all St Austell ale pubs, beer top notch condition but spoiled by being too cold and forced through a sparkler. Monday nights are great, atmosphere, music and the occassional dancer

The Blue Anchor, Helston

I always have to get in this pub when I'm in Cornwall. Nipped in on Thursday, Middle top notch, great chat, this pub is drinking heaven. If ever you get a poor pint, say something, they will always sort it out no hassle. In an area where all the St Austell pubs serve the ale too cold through a sparkler The Blue Anchor shines bright as a beer lovers oasis.

The Vine, Pamphill

This is just one of those pubs, you either get it or you don't. To have a quiet chat with a cheese toasty and a well kept pint of something obscure is heaven to me, may it stay like this for ever.....

The Black Horse Inn, Byworth

Yes I must say it is great to see this gem of a pub back in the ownership of people who seem to do it just right. Dark Star beer was top notch and to see La Roche Sauvignon as a house wine says it all, keep up the good work.

The Blue Anchor, Helston

I am lucky enough to visit West Cornwall about 10 - 14 times a year and have to nip into The Blue Anchor for a "swift half" It is a "must drop in" pub, simply one of the best in the country.

The White Lion Inn, Thakeham

A gem. Love this pub, park across the fields near Warminghurst Church and stroll through the Bluebell wood for a superb meal and a well kept pint of Duetchers IPA, plus a good chat and alls right with the world

10 Aug 2009 16:08

The Red Lion, Snargate

Just one of the few great pubs left in England, no gimmicks just great beers and always a conversation.

10 Aug 2009 10:53

The Case is Altered, Five Ways

When you find a pub like this, all is right with the world. No gimmicks just great ale and chat.

The Crown Inn, Penzance

This is the best place to stop for a pint and a pizza in Penzance. Lovely people run this place and they deserve the success that they are getting. Taylor Landlord superb and the Butcombe was excellent.

The Duke of Cumberland, Henley

This pub is a legend! I have been popping in since my childhood when mum & dad used to like a drink there. But last few years it has been completely out of my price bracket. Pubs like this are no longer accesable to regular folk, just the "OK yah" brigade. Such a shame

The Jolly Farmer, Cookham Dean

First visit Tuesday lunchtime, superb Sharps bitter, excellent feel to this place, Chilli poor, Ham Egg & Chips spot on

The Sussex Brewery, Emsworth

A gem, great ale and food, would have rated 9 but prices a bit steep

20 Jan 2008 17:53

The Coal Exchange, Emsworth

Great little pub, it takes a lot to get me into former Gales pubs (what they did with Gales brewery at Horndean is unforgiveable!) but still a warm welcome and well kept ales + decent priced food, a pub for all people and all seasons. Would have got rated 9 but for the Fullers "profit before people" policy.

The White Hart, Arundel

Currently closed, wonder what Harveys plan for this place. Lets hope they put their heart & Soul into putting it back on the map ASAP

20 Jan 2008 17:47

The Crown Inn, Penzance

Smashing barmaid as was food and well kept Otter Brewery Ale, well done, a real cut above the rest of Penzance's below average boozers

8 Jan 2008 23:03

The Three Tuns, St Keverne

Love this place, somehow reminds me of France. Would like to see a more adventurous ale selection but overall a smasher

11 Dec 2007 15:01

The Blisland Inn, Blisland

Sunday roast is best value in the south, what with that and an awsome selection of ace ales, drinking heaven, can I have a lift home?

11 Dec 2007 14:59

The Blue Anchor, Helston

Drinking heaven but need subtitles to get what the locals are saying. Can't wait to try the Winter beer at Christmas

11 Dec 2007 14:46

The Bridge Inn, Amberley

The new landlord (and wife) have done a great job here, always the best pint of Harveys in the area + excellent guests such as Taylor Landlord, Sharps Doom Bar & Skinners Betty Stogs. Always a friendly welcome and superb food. Open all days every day

11 Dec 2007 14:34

The Kings Arms, Arundel

The Summer Lightning is always top notch, needs a re-dec though or perhaps knocking into one large bar, not the most comfortable of boozers but one of the only two left in Arundel worth a stop

21 Oct 2005 14:59

The Eagle, Arundel

One of the only two decent pubs left in Arundel. Always a graet pint of Harveys here but I do wish they would embrace a guest ale policy!

21 Oct 2005 14:55

The Duke of Cumberland, Henley

Great beers, great location but how can they charge those food prices?

21 Oct 2005 14:50

The Bridge Inn, Amberley

A bit "icky" needs to employ a clean pub policy. The beers are usually top notch though, had a preat pint of Duetchers IPA

21 Oct 2005 14:46

The Black Horse, Climping

Used to be a pub, now a eatery with high prices and low quality + the staff are far too overbearing.

21 Oct 2005 14:43

The Falkland Arms, Great Tew

A gem, situated in a classic village "untouched by time" great ale selection - well done Wadsworth for letting the landlord have a choice over guest ales (take note Greene King!)
