The Squirrel

Penn Street


Up down pub ranking

No less than 7 ales available, three on tap and four from the cask. Headlined by a super drop of Brain's Reverend James there were also offerings from XT, Meantime, Revisionist, Innis & Gunn And, especially for our Hare, Maggs Magnificent Mild. Also bar staff who were knowledgeable about that life essential - beer.
Not beer:
Whilst the L & S was reasonable at £1.50 a pint, the cola was predictably pricey at £2.95. Dunno why this dubious concoction is nearly always a pocket emptier but there it is. The hot chocolate, however, declared good value and truly yummy which adds an extra mark to the pot.
Don't usually go a bundle on skinny minnies but these were "real chips", skins on and well cooked. Good quantities distributed and, without the presence of he who shall be nameless (Mike), plenty to go round.
A good welcome from pleasant bar staff into the welcoming interior replete with flagstone floors and two roaring real fires, much needed after swamp bashing through Penn Woods in the monsoon season. Well enjoyed.


Penn Street, home of Penn House situated on land granted by Henry V111, probably in exchange for nooky. With a sprinkling of old houses dating back to the fifteenth century, more importantly, it also boasts two pubs, The Hit or Miss being an Olde Worlde establishment with Newe Worlde prices fine for the cravat and prosecco set, whilst thankfully The Squirrel is a proper village pub well run and not requiring an in situ cash point to visit.
