The Whole Hog, Malmesbury

Much to admire in this GBG 2020 entry.... detailed as a Bar Restaurant.

Separate restaurant to drinking area
Drinking area has a proper old school feel to it
Wooden partitions, large glass windows to watch the world go by
five hand pulls on - all around £3.30
Ramsbury Farmers Best an unusual pint - perfect condition.
Perfectly positioned between the Abbey and the Market Square.

The Mousetrap Inn, Bourton on the Water

Only Good Beer Guide 2020 Entry in the immediate area - including the larger Stow on the Wold.

Its slightly off the tourist centre - but not far. Hence he reason I'd not found it before.

Gorgeous Honey Stone Building. Single roomed, setup mainly for dining. The drinker has not been forgotten - high stools at the bar and a comfy looking couple of leather sofas. Three real ales on - two locALE and a Titantic that wasn't Plum Porter. I had a perfect stroud brewery Fall - a smoky bitter. Little sample jars showed the colour and all three were a dark brown chestnut. Strange not to see more variety. £4

Friendly landlord and popular for food - so book if you are thinking of eating. many were turned away.

The Crosse Keys, Bank

former HQ of HSBC and now a Wetherspoons GBG 2020 entry.

The building - if you look up - is stunning. all marble columns and huge lighting rigs in a cavernously airy room.

If you look down, you'll see the usual JDW sticky tables covered in spent glasses and "interesting" carpet.

Beer Choice is beyond comprehension - 24 hand pulls advertised on TV Screens. If you use the app, you can only select the regulars. London Pride was in poor condition.

There is no doubt I would come again. So much to discover, if I actually get to the bar.

10 for the building/choice. 4 for the quality.
