The Tower Arms, Iver

Was in here to watch the football this afternoon. The pub is a nice old building in a prominent location. There are a number of different seating areas. 2 ales were on - Fuller's London Pride & Brakspear Bitter. The probable reason why this place was dead was the prices. £4.90 a pint seemed very steep. Very few people were in, whether to drink or to eat. I'm sure I've been here at some time in the dim and distant past. But, today was certainly my first visit in many years.

The Egham Constitutional Club, Egham

Was back here for their Easter Beer Festival, the club's 32nd festival. As usual, the club was packed with people from near and far. The festival itself is a beer ticker's paradise, with many new or one off ales. Breweries represented were Almasty, Anomoly, Ascot, Bristol Beer Factory, Burning Sky, Buxton, Church Hanbrewery, Dark Revolution, Downlands, Fierce & Noble, Greyhound, Indigenous, Innformal, Intrepid, Kent, Moor, Neptune, Old Windsor, Park, Penton Park, Signal, Southwark, Stardust, Thames Side, Thurston's, Tiny Rebel, Top Out, Uprising, XT & Yeastie Boys. Most ales are on stillage in a yard at the rear, where there is also a BBQ area serving burgers and the like. There are also around 7-8 ales on at the bar inside, including the regular ales Rebellion IPA & Surrey Hills Shere Drop. 9 ciders were also on from Biddenden, Hallett's, Newton Court, Sandford Orchards, Tiny Rebel, West Milton & Wise Owl. Live music is held most days, although not on this Thursday night. Entry is free for club members, £2 for CAMRA members and £3 for all others. A glass deposit charge of £3 is also levied. A really good club, with an excellent festival.

The Wheatsheaf Inn, Rutland

The Wheatsheaf was my final pub of the day in Rutland and it was quite a fitting finale. Similar to so many pubs in this area, the focus is on food. There is a small bar area and a couple of rooms serving food. With all tables in the bar area taken, I took a small table on the edge of the one dining area, only to be told that I needed to move for a food booking. I can see why pubs have to resort to concentrating on food, in order to survive. But, it's a bit annoying when they cannot provide enough space for drinkers to enjoy themselves too. More of a restaurant than a pub. Ales were Greene King Abbot, St Austell Proper Job, Theakston Lightfoot & Langton Inclined Plane.
