    Looks like they're resting on their laurels a little. Has got a bit dirty and doesn't have much of an atmosphere or many rare craft ales anymore.

    Excellent Real Ales, both the permanent selection and their guest. The Hairy Helmet on today is well worth a try.

    Nothing like Guildford but the staff do have arms, which proves useful for pulling pints, glass collection and so on. Not that amputees wouldn't also be welcome.
