The Royal Standard of England, Beaconsfield

Plenty of parking space for tourists, plenty of beers at tourist prices. As a pub serving real ale it is fine. If you are hoping for a proper English pub experience I would suggest the White Horse in Hedgerley or the Royal Standard in Wooburn common.

The Bree Louise, Euston

I was really excited about visiting this pub and really wanted to like it. When I got there I thought I was in heaven, being a dark beer fan they had three to choose from on gravity dispense so I choose a Purple Moose Dark Side of the Moose. I then watched the girl behind the bar lift up the cask to pour the dregs out and fill the glass. I assumed she was going to pour it away - she served it to me. Being a Friday night it had clearly been sat there since last weekend and it was awful. I returned it and swapped it for a Cambridge Black Dog. This was actually even worse, I gave it back again saying sorry but this is totally flat and bland tasting to which I was told "this is what it should taste like". She asked her 'manager' and in fairness to him he swapped it for me. This time I went for Skinners Betty Stoggs which was worse than the two beers I had perviously. I asked my friend to take it back as I was too embarrased. I then had a Rebellion Blonde which was lovely, but I live two miles from the brewery and can get it anytime when in season.

I am not fussy and I rarely return beers as I can appreciate that someone has to have the last pint in the cask etc, but I found the bar staff pretty rude and the beer was in poor, poor condition. A real shame because the choice is so good. I am no fan of the CAMRA pricing policy either. Why should I pay 30p over the odds so someone else can pay 20p under?

The Partridge, Partridge Green

Visited on a Saturday afternoon, a day after it re-opened. It is a Dark Star pub so plenty of Dark Star beers of course plus a couple of other dark beers. Spacious and has a very new feeling to it. Just around the corner from the brewery, it is Dark Star heaven.
