The George and Dragon, Salisbury

A few of the locals from the Rose & Crown (the best pub in Wallington, Surrey) decamped to Salisbury for a masonic weekend in the local hotel (The Milford Park Hotel, see review). Seasoned pubgoers, all we needed somewhere where we'd be catered for in a manner to which we were accustomed. The George & Dragon (or should it be the George & Parrot?) did not disappoint. Friendly staff and customers, good pub grub, three or four real ales, all in first class condition and a nice garden overlooking the Avon. Luis had long and meaningful conversations with the resident parrot and we all enjoyed our two visits. We will return.

Farmers Arms, Muker

We were up in the Dales for the 1st time in July and fell in love with Muker. The Farmers is the only pub in the village and it's just perfect for walkers, bikers, passing sheep farmers and soft southerners in 4x4's, (us),
Here I discovered Black Sheep Best Bitter and my mate settled for draught Thatchers Cider. The food is good wholesome well prepared English grub, reasonably priced and served by friendly staff, in fact everyone we met was friendly and ready for a chat. PS. Asda do a bottled version of Black Sheep Bitter which is very pleasant, pour yourself a glass and imagine being in the Dales. Perfick!

The Ravensbury Arms, Mitcham

The overflowing sewer in the car park should have warned us, we were there for a drink and a bite to eat after the funeral of a friend, just as we had been a year earlier for her husband. What a difference a year makes! The designated room was in a filthy condition with old food, chips, peas etc. liberally scattered on the wooden floor. The coffee machine was broken so they'd laid out the cups with a bowl of teabags and instant coffee, the sandwiches were of the British Rail variety, hard, stale and tending to curl.
The furniture was tired, torn and looked as though it had been purchased at a boot fair. The exterior wasn't any better strewn as it was with rubbish and litter.
The beer? 2 on tap were Doombar & Fullers London Pride, both in good nick, it's a pity the pub's not!
