The Chequers, Stevenage

Visited a few weeks before 'Aztecgoat' and had the same experience.
Slightly less choice of beer and food put on hold for at least a couple of months.
Might return if hearing positive news.

The Sandpiper, Mudeford

I was advised by the locals that the Sandpiper was the best pub for food and handy that it serves all day.
Upon arrival I noticed it was Greene King run - oh well.

Inside it was quite roomy filled mainly with family's or groups of single mums. It was busy but not noisy.
TV screens were dotted about but not obtrusive.

Apart from GK IPA and Abbot a decent couple of guest beers were available; Hop Back Crop Circle and Downton Honey Blonde.
Food choice was plentiful and all staff were very pleasant.
Maybe not a drinkers pub but ok for a bite to eat.

The Spyglass and Kettle, Southbourne

Fairly predicted choice of ales: GK Abbot, IPA, Old Speckled Hen and best of the lot, Yardbird - which had just run out - typical.
Not many customers so not too long to wait for food.

The soup starter choice was either mushroom or spinach, I chose mushroom - it took nearly an hour to come.
The server did apologise for the delay. I asked him why was my mushroom soup green? Ah, he said, you have got spinach. I'll change it, be about five minutes. If it will only take five minutes, I said, why did the first soup take an hour? No answer.

I think the mains arrived the next day (not that I was still there to find out).
