The Jolly Farmer, Weybridge

Hope to see you back in the Good Beer Guide soon! We've been using the JF for well over a decade and have seen many ups and downs (mainly ups). The beer quality since Jim has been in charge is fabulous, it's not often you see 9 out of 10 pints filled with ale these days - that says something.

Ales last night were, Adnam's Best, Butcombe Gold, Ringwood Best, Adnam's Broadside & St. Austell Tribute.

No connections with the pub other than a long standing happy customer. Cheers!

The Swan, Walton on Thames

Popped in Wednesday 26 March 2008, to find that the pub has turned into what looks like a big restaurant. The two small front bars have disappeared and been replaced with one larger room set out with laid tables for diners (where were they?).

The larger characterless rear bar is now the only bar, it has been totally re-furbished in what appears to be the new Young's modern dark leather and wood style.

The loss of the two front bars is a real shame, the quieter cosy one in particular was a real gem. One cannot deny that the pub was very overdue for a refurbishment, however a little more sensativity with regards to the pub's heritage could have been executed.

Where do the locals drink now? Up the road I imagine....

The beer, my pint of 'Ordinary' was a very short measure, I asked for it to be topped up. Somebody else in the bar was drinking something very murky, it looking much like a cloudy wheat beer. A quick scan of the pumps suggested that this was not the case - duff pint? Hope he wasn't ill.

The White Hart, New Haw

The smoking ban has seen this pub refurbished for the better. Now nice and bright, rather then the tired smokey pea souper it once was. Harvey's Best Bitter (a regular guest) was spot on. Nice little garden to sit and watch the ducks swimming past. A good refuelling point when on an extended pub jaunt along the Wey Navigation.
