Show us your favourite pub.
I like this one, mainly because it’s halfway round one of my favourite rides and because it’s literally metres from the top of, IMO, one of the best downhill runs on Dartmoor (especially after a cheeky couple in the beer garden!)
Unfortunately I seem end up here more often thoughPosted 4 years ago

Oh no, I’ve learned the hard way about mid-ride drinking on Dartmoor – darkness descends and distances increase and the howling begins…
Can’t say I’ve ever noticed a problem with the staff at the Warren House, but then I’m usually so exhausted a Klingon wearing Laura Ashley could pull my pint and I wouldn’t register anything out of the ordinary. It’s like 250 years ago someone built a pub exactly where I’d eventually need a pub.Posted 4 years agoBreganteSubscriber
In recent years, the best boozer I’ve been in by far has to be the Hospital Arms in Colchester, unfortunately it’s a five hour drive away but it’s my brother in laws local and every time we’ve nipped there for a quick pint, we’ve staggered home many hours later to our angry wives.

Love this thread!
Chunky, was there to watch the Jubilee flotilla coming downstream. Rode on from there, following them along the river to Putney, then over for a bite at this rather lovely place;
Now I feel I must go to my local tomorrow night. And so I shall!Posted 4 years agoNobeerinthefridgeSubscriber
My fave local pub, Geordies Byre in Ayr. Looks like bugger all on the outside, but inside it is cracking. 4 or 5 real ales, around 2.65 a pint, a couple of times a day they bring out a tray of cheese n biscuits. There’s no swearing allowed (and the barmaids a very strong on this!) and no big groups of lads or lassies. Oh, and pickled eggs wi Tabasco. Heaven on earth.Posted 4 years agobinnersSubscriberpihaSubscriber
@ theotherjonv, you’re quite correct, The Donkey is at Charleshill but Charleshill is actually in Tilford, The border is the bridge at Elstead 🙂
Simply can’t be beaten on a stormy winters night and ain’t to shabby for a mid ride refresher on a summers day.Posted 4 years ago
