The Prince Albert, Bletchingley

No entry since 18 Feb 2011 and so much has changed. Forget what has gone before with the absentee and caretaker landlords; revisit this pub, it has been transformed in recent months. The new landlord and landlady Steve and Mel have worked hard to make this a great village pub again. They are welcoming, friendly and obliging together with serving excellent food and great condition beers. That welcome extended to our 20 month old daughter, who was given a little gift of easter chicks, Birdeeeee! Bless.
Mel is the "cellarman" and her ESB is the best I have tasted in a long while. They deserve much credit for what has been achieved and justly deserve your custom. I am sorry that the regulars we used to see in there have gone elsewhere, perhaps they should try it again and hopefully never look back.
The garden has also been the subject of some hard work, cleared and tended, great for those summer afternoons.

The Hopbine, Matfield

A really great old-fashioned boozer, friendly landlord serving beers in excellent condition. The food is tasty, home-made and very good value.
Great shame it is not open more hours, but then that is part of its old-fashioned charm. Highly recommended and has been in the Good Beer Guide for over 25 years.

The Opera House, Tunbridge Wells

I should have added that getting into and out of the place requires that you run the gauntlet through the smokers on the steps and under the front canopy. The staff have clearly not told them that was made illegal in July 2007! I have nothing against smokers, but it does make the entrance and exit a little awkward and uncomfortable.
