The Oak, Oakridge

Situated in the High street by the Community Hall for All/ Village Green and shops. Seems to cover the locals needs in entertainment. I have enclosed a photo taken with all the early January 2010 snow.

The Inn on the Park, Woodley

I was a local resident who used/ drank and worked behind the bar (in the 90's on and off). Several management teams came - if i recall employed by Woodley town council - usually good people-often tightly run ( almost driven by various town councillors) - the staff was from locals, uni studants. A Quiz was run very well back then. The Leisure centre had badmington halls and conference hall - i used to attend the excellent Woodley Camera club. The Real was usually Breakspears and Fuller's London Pride but often varied (guest ale). Children were not allowed ,if i recall in the bar but there is a patio by a paddling pool(summer) and play area. Set in the middle of Woodford Park with cricket and football matches plus a bowling green and tennis courts. Did have a curfew , ie a main locked shortly after time gate down the hill.
Did have a caretaker, groundstaff for the park and town council offices. I moved in 2000 - still had tv and a very good nearby Carnival once a year (June). The memorial Park added / rebuilt the theatre etc so i think the council offices moved to the lower of the two parks (Headley Road). Corination Hall was still active next to it when i visited the excellent Woodley 3K & 10K Run (i think a fud raises for 1st Woodley Scouts). The shopping centre is vibrant and nearby in Crockenwell Road ( The Chequers PH also).

The Barley Mow, Oakley

My wife and I have recently visited the Barley Mow Public House and enjoyed two sperate very delicious vegetarian meals for very reasonable prices. With a good selection of beverage (non alchoholic)afterwards.The Landlord/Landlady & their staff were on both occasions very friendly, hospitable and the conversation was good and they were very helpful. They have two very beautiful springer dogs (Dyson & Oscar) who kept us company.
The Lounge bar was clean, tidy with the service efficient and helpful at all times. On both occasions the locals were chatty & interested in our visit and welcoming. They seemed to have a wide selection behind the bar. The village is easily excessible from Basingstoke and the nearby Pond is certainly very photogenic and the older houses added to it's obvious beauty. We hope to return for more very soon.
