Sampled by

KO, FN, TM & RO

It sounded a good plan in the pub on Saturday but they had not run it
passed RO. Good they used their heads and sent a runner in to
The Standard of England in search or the real stuff, of course no
joy and also no fair as KO promised.


Dover Arms - Ash

The landlord was ok and the two punters at the bar proved very chatty
as we left. The pub had had a coating of paint and all the bric-a-
rac removed. Good start but as Tel pointed out does spoil an already
well trodden route form the Lion brewery.

Brewer            Beer        %  Price Mark Comment
Slaters           Owzat      3.8 £2.85 3.5	
Hogs Back Brewery Summer Ale 4.2 £2.85  NT	


Napiers

Busy pub and the Landlord warned us off the Courage Directors when he
noticed my note book he said there was half a barrel left and it was
just not right. We did notice that he did not turn the pub clip
around or remove it. The word is beware all real ale drinkers. The
other beers were very good so no complaints there. Yes a very
pleasant welcoming place.

Courage Directors    4.8 £2.80 NT   Barrel turning

The Swan

Something to be said about arriving a bit later the food rush had
gone, you could easily reach the bar and as normal the beer prices
are reasonable and is the selection available.

The Old Ford - North Camp

The local motorbike Chapter were there in full very busy outside,
inside no problems, room enough. We found out it was a wake that did
explain why they were all a bit quite.
After a small debate we decided to make this the last port of call a
nice place at the bar and plenty of Hobgoblin kept us quite. It was a
bit of a late one and then off down the Queens Avenue.

Brewer   Beer              %  Price Mark Comment
Wychwood Hobgoblin        4.5 £2.80  4   Very nice

Moorlands Old Speckled Hen     £2.80  NT  Went as we arrived.
