Comment
As usual an excellent range of well-kept beers were available in this
pub in the middle of a roundabout. Most went for the Archers Pride
and Surrey Hills Shere Drop while one drinker, some might say,
foolhardy, tried the Hampshire Pride of Romsey IPA. Turned out it was
quite a nice pint if a little strong for an opener.

Comment
During the hot summer month’s customers have switched from beer to
lager and cider so the landlord, Tim, has cut down the choice from 5
to 3 to keep quality high. Both beers we tried were in good
condition, the Abbot particularly so. The best we have had for a long
time but then with our Abbot checker absent this was probably the
first one the rest of us have actually tried for years! Authentic
Tandoori meals available in separated restaurant. Sunday buffet – eat
as much as you like for £7.95 – looks well worth trying.

Comment
This 2007 GBG listed pub still has a smashing buzz about it, nice and
friendly. The Greene King IPA is consistently good quality and FN
reports the Abbot’s not bad either. Current ‘guest’ is Ruddles
Orchard.

Greene King Abbot   5.0 £2.60      Not tried
Ruddles     Orchard 4.2 £2.60  3   Well kept but nothing special
