The Chequers, Stevenage

Five years on and changes. Change of landlord and a decent change of beer.
Five handpumps dispensing: Purity's Bunny Hop, Dark Star Hop Head, Oakham's Citra, Rev James and, the fly in the ointment - Doom Bar.
More people drinking than eating on a mid-week sunny afternoon.
Keep up the good work.

The Moon and Starfish, Clacton On Sea

Eight beers displayed today, five guests plus the three regular ales.
I chose a pint each of the two most hoppy guest beers, only to be told by the barman, "Their off".
'Then why have you still got the pump clips showing?' I asked. Reluctantly he removed only one of them.

I've got nothing against beers running out, but annoyed when bar staff are too lazy to turn the pump clips around.
How many customers ask him for those beers and be told their off?

So I settled for Purity's Saddle Black (good) and Flack Manor's Flack Catcher (reasonable).

The Plough, Tyttenhanger

Superb country pub.
Ten handpumps with nine different real ales.
Three of them commonly seen; London Pride, Old Hooky and ESB.
A couple of Christmas specials; Hook Norton's Twelve Days and Fullers Snow Globe.
The others included; Owd Rodger, Lock Keepers, Peacemaker and 61 Deep.
A bugger when, because of driving, I can only have two pints!

Where did they get all those beer bottles? Most looked unopened.
Food and price was okay. The verdict is out on the bar staff.
Well worth another visit.
