The Chequers, Stevenage

I never thought I would say this - what a great Greene King pub!
At least eight real ales, mostly from breweries other than GK.
Oldershaw's Heavenly Blonde was superb, as was Leighton Buzzard's Cuckoo.
A couple of porters were also available.
Good food and friendly staff.

Bakehouse, Welwyn Garden City

Missed the turning into the pub so turned left at the traffic lights, turned around in the road, came back to the lights and turned right.
The entrance from this way is blocked by a traffic island, so went down to the roundabout, all the way round and came back up my original route and left into the pub car park. Not a good start.

Four real ale pumps - only two on. Pedigree and Old Empire - both poor quality.
Had the Sunday carvery. A mixture of meats are offered and comes with a yorkshire pudding as big as your plate (which is not very clever as you then have to juggle it to get your veg on) and then it tasted like plastic.
By the time we found the gravy and got back to our table the food was only luke warm at best.

Waited over half an hour for our sweets to arrive and enquired (sarcastically) if I had to queue up for it like the carvery?
They came five minutes later and was the best part of the meal.

On exiting the car park I needed to turn right - you can't because of said traffic island.
So, up to the traffic lights again, take any turn, turn around and back through the lights again - bloody stupid.

Having said all this I'm willing to give the pub a second visit just in case we were unlucky - fingers crossed.

The Three Horse Shoes, Fairburn

Nice roomy pub close to the local bird reserve.
Two ever changing beers and excellent cooked meals.
Pleasant chatty landlady.
