Thatched Cottage - Cove - SU864564

Comment
Arrived soaking wet as this summer strives to get going. Beers
tried were all in good condition. Prices are also low for this area,
if a little quirky in the actual amount charged.

Old Courthouse - Coe - SU859555

Comment
Busy even on this very wet night. Landlord maintains a very
reasonable pint of beer and at a good price as well. At pains to 
oint out that he has a function room available at the back which he 
would be quite happy for CAMRA to use for meetings on weekdays.

Swan - Farnboroug -SU870545

Comment
The beer choice and quality showed a distinct improvement on last 
year, which is handy, as we have always liked the atmosphere in this 
pub. Very good prices for this area. Unless you like aircraft, best
avoided during the Farnborough Airshow week.
