The White Knight, Pound Hill

Spent a few months around this part of Crawley and watched this place go further and further down the plughole. What should be a cracking community pub is often a venue for fighting dogs, alcoholic drop-outs and worse. Monday nights, there's a great Irish barmaid who is attentive to customers. Since the last couple left, there's a bloke managing it who, frankly, couldn't give a damn about his customers. He regularly allows his dog to fight with customers' dogs, and generally chooses who he will - and will not - speak to. One Saturday evening, he spent a whole hour on his phone without even pausing the conversation when pulling drinks. His attitude stinks. The place looks run down and looks like it could close any minute. I wouldn't go there again if it was the last pub on earth! Plenty of better options within walking distance (Snooty Fox for example).

The British Lion (the Pig), Crewe

What a disaster! I arrived for a regular Sunday evening pint, last week, and found it firmly locked and bolted. Crewe cannot afford to be without a characterful boozer like this. Yes, the ambience had changed a bit with witless bar staff who know nothing about real ale, but the regulars were all there, and the beer was well kept. How long must we suffer this closure?

Bear's Paw, Warmingham

The good news is that it has re-opened under the management of the same people that own the Pheasant at Higher Burwardsley. The emphasis is as a gastropub and place to stay. The good quality of the food is matched by the exemplary standard of service. This is a professional outfit, but not so sharp that you would feel out of place if you just came for a drink. Good range of cask ales.
