Rising Sun, Haddenham

Excellent Beer Emporium ! What a change- new managers since dec2015 and a wide choice of really top notch beers. This has to be one of the top beer pubs for miles around!

The Angel, Bicester

Under New Management - fruit machines and sky sports all gone. Now a decent proper pub - four real ales on plus a load of different gins. Well worth a visit and a welcome change to the spoons and dross in town.

The Wheel is a great find. A GK pub but with true guest beers from a wide range of brewers local and further.

1 Apr 2012 22:01

The Unicorn, Cublington

Lovely little country pub, well worth the drive and searching to find. A range of well kept ales including a very nice beer called XT 4 from a local brewery.

1 Apr 2012 21:56

The Charles Dickens, Beaconsfield

[True to the last comment, Beerintheevening don't ever seem to update anything these days] But.. the Treehouse is a lovely re-invention of the 'pub' and very smart, they also have the lovely XT 4 on as a regular ale as well.

1 Apr 2012 21:52

Real atmosphere, real pub and real ales from the inhouse Thame Brewery and the new local XT Brewery. There's even two TV stars behind the bar!

25 Nov 2011 17:50

13 Nov 2011 12:29

The Royal Standard, Wooburn Common

20 May 2011 16:32

The Anglers Rest, Millers Dale

Nice multi room pub, hikers bar, lounge and a small restarant room. Good range of local beers, well kept.

15 Apr 2011 15:16

The Red Lion Inn, Litton

wonderful multi room country pub in the pretty village of litton. Food beers (generally a changing list of local brews) and service top rate.

15 Apr 2011 15:13

The Three Stags Heads, Wardlow Mires

Rightly this pub is in the top 10, amazing place takes a trip back to how a rural Derbyshire pub would have been. Landlord, locals and dogs all very friendly and welcoming. Great find.

15 Apr 2011 15:12

The Stag and Huntsman, Hambleden

Great little pub. Beers well kept, had a pint of Loddon Hoppit. Separate distinct bars and friendly locals, manages to not vanish up its own backside like some of the other pubs in the area.

5 Jan 2011 21:22

The Blue Flag, Cadmore End

Now called 'The Tree'

5 Jan 2011 21:20

The Prince Albert, Frieth

Same as reviews below. Great old pub, well kept beers.

5 Jan 2011 21:13

The Bounty, Bourne End

Decent pub. Dave looks after his beers - usually three from Rebellion. Limited opening hours (weekends only) in winter.

5 Jan 2011 20:59

The Gate Inn, Bryants Bottom

Great little pub. Two bars, friendly barman. Only GK beers on, but always well kept. Good sized meals all home cooked.

5 Jan 2011 20:04

The Green Man, Flackwell Heath

The Green Man is now borded up and looks like it will be demolished...

16 Dec 2010 16:23

The Chequers, Marlow

The boards are off and the pub is being refurb'ed. Says it will reopen in July, and the new owners look like a chain of Steak restaurants/pubs. Wait and see...

21 Jun 2010 15:59

The Ship, Marlow

Can we have the tables back, and turn off that TV?

21 Jun 2010 12:57

The Lions of Bledlow, Bledlow

Very pretty pub in the lovely village of Bledlow, lots of different seating areas, and very low beams. Five changing real ales on, usually well kept. But, as they only ever have one guy working the bar it can take ages to get service. The food, takes ages, expensive and is a bit lackluster. Just one or two more staff and bit more effort on the food and this would be a 10/10 pub.

21 Jun 2010 12:46

The Old Swan Uppers, Cookham

This place has changed hands a couple of times since Statto's comment below. Generally four or five well kept ales from the likes of Sharps, Adnams or Fullers. Great old interior, with a wood burner in the front bar and low timbered ceilings.

24 May 2010 16:00

The Sun Inn, Hawkshead

Couple of well kept Jennings beers on, shame their interior refit lacks the charm this old building could have

24 May 2010 15:21

Tweedies Bar at Dale Lodge Hotel, Grasmere

Good range of beers, about 8 when we visited and mainly local brews, and a very large garden.

24 May 2010 15:18

The White Horse, Hedgerley

Great range of beers, you'll guarantee to find something new. Went on a Sunday, very busy, but sat outside in the lovely garden. This pub is hard to beat.

9 Mar 2010 16:45

The Jolly Farmer, Cookham Dean

Great pub owned by the village. Usually 4 or 5 beers on, typically from Rebellion, Brakespears, Youngs and various guests, which are all very well kept. Large garden for the kids out the back.

9 Mar 2010 16:37

The Garibaldi, Bourne End

Good 'local' pub, three beers usually from the likes of GK, Adnams or Fullers. Probably the best pub in Bourne End.

9 Mar 2010 16:26

Walnut Tree, Bourne End

Ok pub, but could be so much better, lacks the charm that it could so easily have. Beers usually ok, with guests from the GK list.

9 Mar 2010 16:19

The Bounty, Bourne End

If you don't like the Bounty, you have no soul. Usually has three Rebellion beers on, reasonably well kept. Very un-pretentious pub, everyone welcome, dogs, kids, walking boots.

9 Mar 2010 16:16

The Old Hill Inn, Chapel-le-Dale

Really welcome after hiking over Ingleborough. Lots of wood and bare stone walls, mixed with open fires, it's what a pub should be in the Dales. I had a good pint of Dent Aviator, and there was a fair range of other beers on pump.

9 Mar 2010 14:03

The Falcon Inn, Arncliffe

Like a trip back to the 1930s. Very nice pint of Tim Taylor Best served from a jug. Landlord is a character, very friendly once you got used to his humour. Really is well worth a visit. Please never change this place, there are so few of its kind left.

9 Mar 2010 13:53

The Kings Head, Kettlewell

Would say this is easily the best pub in Kettlewell. Great steak pie and portions so big, the veg comes on side dishes. Good and changing range of beer. Had few fine pints of Yorkshire Dales Cragside.
