Up down pub ranking

Beer:
Rebellion IPA (£3.60) and Roasted Nuts (£3.70) were on tap and very well-kept, with a reasonable (if unexciting) selection of other big brand beers. Per the barmaid, they used to serve Windsor & Eton, and I was advocating stocking Mean Brewery beers, but the new landlord is apparently rather reluctant to branch out.
Not beer:
£2.50 for a STD! Gasps of shock, horror, and dismay echoed around the bar. Who cares about the wine list or hot drinks after this!
Food
Chips were rather straggly & minimal...and Mike hadn’t even had any first for once! Sauces were an afterthought, although Ant’s birthday snacks stopped any grumbles.
Hashmosphere
Main bar had an open roaring fire, roomy side bar (perfect for segregating hashers... and Roger), reasonably friendly (though not overly swift) service, with plenty of parking outside /across the road near the church.

A bit out of the way, but well worth a visit...as long as you stick to the beer!
