It’s the weekend, the sun is shining so it’s time to go for a beer. Into the car, top down, through the country lanes to a local village. We seek out the one recommended by the website we regularly look at and end up having a rather quick beer (well, a cola for me) before making a swift exit for another of the village pubs. Ratings below:
Cricketers, Pirbright (3/5) – apparently the real ale was good, but no food available (although it does say food available). Good views over the cricket ground make this a nice pub to sit outside in the sun…which is what we did.
The White Hart, Pirbright (4.5/5) – not a five for the simple reason my choices from the menu were all sold out and I ended up with something I didn’t really care for. That said, the atmosphere is fantastic, the staff very friendly and funny, the food was great and the selection varied – not just your average pub grub. With papers on a rack and a brunch menu lurking behind the bar – this one’s worth a sunday morning visit…and a taxi home!
Ah, must be a bank holiday weekend!
