Very busy for my visit with my wife and very elderly aunt for our lunchtime meal which was very good. The service was also first rate.

Very pleasant pub both inside and out which was fairly busy at lunchtime when I went with my wife and very elderly aunt for a lunchtime meal which was very tasty. We sat outside enjoying the summer sun.

Went for a good long walk on Sunday. The weather was glorious, not a cloud in the sky. I'd intended to make the Gate Inn my half way point but changed my mind and came here instead. So pleased to see they're doing Non-Sheps ales as well now. A nice pub with a good food reputation in such peaceful surroundings. That was until all the Sunday lunchers started to arrive en masse and in full voice. Still...the beer was good.

Came for lunch. The staff were very helpful and friendly and the food was good. Nice garden too.

Sharp's - Doom Bar4.00PoorThis was drinkable but only just. There was no condition to it but the real problem was that there was a kind of mustiness to it that was mildly unpleasant.

Came here on a firms do, free food and beer,mmmm. Nice enough pub that seems to concentrate on food.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Hook Norton - Hooky Gold4.10GoodA nice enough pint, pale and hoppy and some citrus but a bit unexciting. It seemed a better option than Masterbrew.

What a great pub. It was a bit hard to find as itís not actually in the centre of Hoath and my drive around the surrounding countryside trying to find it was reminiscent of when Ian and I tried to find the Cherry Tree in Wicklewood, Norfolk. Like the Cherry Tree this was well worth the search. The pub was busy with Sunday diners and locals out for a pint. The interior was lovely; lots of hops, well maintained drinking areas, plush (but timeless) interior trimmings.

Thwaites - Wainwright (please now use the Banks's entry)4.10GoodThe guest beer. Sandy-mustard colour with the aroma or rose petals. Good earthy hop with rose petal notes. Really good session beer. Wish I could have done a session on it to be honest.
