A strange night, people catching the later train, pubs shut, dodging
the vermin; rabbits, foxes and bats in that order (KO saw all these
but no ufo’s).

Jolly Farmer - Blacknest - SU 798 415

The report from the three who cycled up from the station was, the
pub was busy, mostly groups of women.  From the sound of it the
Fullers being on form.

Halfway House - Bucks Horn Oak - SU 807 417

I cycled from Aldershot  the pub was closed and the signs on the
windows contained the dreaded words:

Lease is at an end.

Blue Bell - Dockenfield - SU 821 411

I phoned the others and said I would meet them here. Very quite 3
young lads and myself until the 3 amigos’ arrived.  I had to train
the young bar man to fill the pint glass. The pricing of the Guest
beer seemed a bit strange £3.40 for a pint of Hallelujah fff. Note
some of the beers were very cold.
