About the Pub

Having featured in the Good Beer Guide for 40 years and won the local Pub of the Year award on countless occasions, it was no surprise when the pub was selected as one of 32 pubs to receive a Golden Award to celebrate CAMRA's 50th anniversary.

This free house has an enviable reputation with beer-lovers, both near and far, especially being only a couple of minutes walk from Farnborough North station. A cosy pub, it has a central bar around which are several distinct, but interconnected areas, the lower ‘snug’ having five guest beers (including generally some dark and/or local beers), and the central area having four regular beers, plus a lower priced “Session Beer“, which changes every couple of months. A craft keg bar was introduced in 2019, towards the back snug, with half a dozen beers dispensed from it, invariably including beers from Siren Craft. There is a wonderful wood-burning stove between the snug and seating area. A box or two of real cider is also normally available as well as a keg cider. Trestle tables at the front and back are popular in fine weather, while the back patio can be covered, and heaters are available when required.

The annual beer festival in October is hugely popular, generally concentrating on a particular area of the country’s beers. Good pub lunches are available throughout the week, and in the evenings curries are available on Mondays and pies, fish and chips on Friday.

For further entertainment there’s a Quiz Night on the second Sunday, and live music each month. Various charity events are held during the year.
