Former Gales pub, now obviously in the hands of Fullers. Visited on
the recommendation of a GU34 member. However we found the beer
quality only average and one pint of London Pride was exchanged as 
unacceptable. The beer prices displayed at the bar were also out of
date. Having said that, it is a pleasant pub for a summer evening
drink.

Useful pub along the A325 between Farnham and Petersfield. Only one
real ale available but the London Pride was in good condition. Food
looked good.

As usual, a very good selection of beers was available. Opinion was
divided over the Bathams Best – whilst the visitors thought the beer
was well up to the pubs normal high standards a regular thought it
was poor. However, we were all agreed the other beers were in top
condition and the pub worth consideration for POTY.

After completing this week’s ride, which for two was over 15 miles,
it was decided next week would be more local!
