The Kenilworth, Edinburgh

Handily placed if you've been in the Cafe Royal, had a few, dropped into Fopp Records and bent the plastic, and then need a pee !
What is it with Edinburgh pubs - the ceilings are works of art, and the beer exceeds expectations.

The Hawkley Inn, Hawkley

Still a great boozer, and with excellent food.
Apparently the accommodation is pretty interesting too !

The Three Moles Inn, Selham

I don't know what the moaning is all about !
It's still a great pub, still got a great bunch of locals, still got a curious range of beer, and an interestingly recycled set of church furniture.
Well worth visiting to remind you this is how pubs once were b4 they 'got conversion'.

The Horse And Groom, East Ashling

'best pint (and value) of Hophead for miles. A smile would not go amiss - this is a 'public service' after all !
Nice touch on Sunday afternoons when the left-over (if any) roast spuds and Yorkshire pud get handed around.

The Blacksmith's Arms, Donnington

Excellent food in the restaurant - with budget combinations available.
A difficult pub to leave !

The Bull's Head, Chichester

Make the most of the lovely barn next to the pub - it's being turned into accommodation at the beginning of November.
Apparently they've got Bob Brozman playing ther on October 25, and boogie-woogie piano maestro - and now Chuck Berry's sideman - Ben Waters on October 31st.

Cafe Royal, Edinburgh

The best pint of Deuchars IPA I've ever enjoyed was in this pub on Friday 10 October. I even learned how to pronounce 'Dookars' - way to go for a Tyke !

The Bull's Head, Chichester

The surly geezer's still there but he loves his live music and keeps his beer well, and the lunchtime sandwiches are good value.
Local promoters Roots Around the World have started presenting regular live music in the low slung atmospheric barn with international roots musicians.

The Victoria Inn, West Marden

Welcoming pub run by two stalwarts of the region who know their beer and their food and present both in very comfortable surroundings. Very handily placed for a pub-crawl up or down the valley !

The Partridge Inn, Singleton

OK, Tony the landlord, is a bit quirky but he keeps his beer well and has weekly live music of a high standard. His use of locally-sourced food should be applauded as his steaks are out of this world.

The Earl of March, Lavant

Under new owners who are giving it a go.

The Ship Hotel, Chichester

Not a drinkers destination - except for good-size measures of wine. Has benefit of free city-centre parking and an excellent-value lunch menu which takes some beating.

The Bull's Head, Chichester

Excellent well-kept beers. Occasional and surprisingly eclectic live music in the adjacent barn.
Good food too !

The Coach and Horses, Compton

Excellent range of beers and welcoming. Some of the best bar food in the area too.

The Barley Mow, Walderton

Wicked selection of at least 4 ales on handpump inc Ringwood Fortyniner, Old Thumper, and Harvey's Best.
Avoid last Sunday lunchtime b4 Christmas unless you like scantily clad Mother Christmas's and blokes with white beards !

The Black Horse, Amberley

Excellent, eccentric folk club meets in the even more eccentricly decorated back room every Tuesday with a fascinating range of music which really explores what folk music should mean !
Good music, good beer, haste ye back !

The Star and Garter, East Dean

Contemporary conversion of previously shabby pub has breathed new life into village-centre location. Best known for excellent food it has a good selection of Ballards on gravity feed tucked out the back. Nice garden makes it an ideal summer location.

The Fox Goes Free, Charlton

Low-ceilinged, flag-floors, open fire, and a great view out the back. Add at least 4 ales on the pump and it's worth checking out. Food is pricey and attracts the grockles but the beer makes up for this.

The Anglesey Arms, Halnaker

Roger Jackson - the man with the midas touch - runs this roadside pub with welcoming open fire, sheltered back garden, excellent food and at least 3 ales on the pump.

15 Feb 2006 12:56

The Keepers Arms, Trotton

Fascinating decor courtesy of the worldwide travelling of landlord Jenny. Excellent range of food - especially the ploughman's, and always a good selection of ales inc Cheriton Potts. An ideal place to while away a Sunday lunchtime on the terrace during the summer.

15 Feb 2006 12:53

The Foresters Arms, Graffham

New owners are really trying to make a go of this pub - mind you the Ballard's Pom's Revenge (yer a vicious man Fran !)- is an acquired taste at 9.2% ! Good food and plenty of it, excellent back garden for the summer months !

15 Feb 2006 12:48

The Horse And Groom, East Ashling

Usually serves an excellent pint of Youngs Bitter, and Hopback Summer Lightning. 'worth visiting around 3pm on Sundays for the left-over roast spuds and Yorkshire pudding !

The Four Chestnuts, Chichester

Excellent friendly pub which always has a good and changing selection of cask-ales. Local folk club adds to the atmosphere.
