Date: 17 August 2011 Surprisingly Good Beer


Sampled by:

ROC, KOC, PV and RN

With FN still on holiday and TM cat sitting, Mengo were a bit thin on the ground and started off as The Three Amigos but with the arrival of RN the analogy ended.

The clientele might have been from the wrong end of Farnham but they were keeping the pub busy and in business. The barman - who seemed familiar - was enjoying some fresh fish for dinner and very nice it looked too. KOC knew the chef. Nothing surprising there but the fine condition of the beer was.

This large single bar roadside pub also has a sizeable conservatory and fag area. Indeed it is so large the ten punters were hard to spot. With football on the TV it was not surprising there were no female customers but the fine condition of the beer was.

Quite a contrast to the previous pub - the pub was busy with customers waiting for the Wednesday quiz to start. It was not surprising Jill was there waiting to quiz but the fine condition of the beer was.

With football on the big screen TV it was surprising to find some females in the public bar. It was not surprising to find a Mengo clone in the lounge but the fine condition of the beer was.

As TM's luck would have it, off cat sitting when the GG gets some Tetley's in! It was not surprising the patio garden was looking very pretty and nor was the fine condition of the beer.
