I spent a good few hours on my only other visit in July last year and said how much I liked the pub, well my opinion is now enhanced, I love it. The ale choice and they way they are kept is superb, service is great with knowledgeable bar staff, the decor is good and lastly the clientele are very friendly The 8 hand pumps each with a different ale, I worked my way through pints of Brass Castles' Snow Eater 4.
Stayed for several hours and got through a few fairs pints. Absolute cracking pub and firmly on my my visit list everytime I visit Ilkley from now on. Fairly easy to get served, as all the barmen were on it and knew who was next. Open plan throughout with a separate dining area to the left of the door as you come in. We stayed for a couple of hours and by 10pm it had emptied a bit with most people moving onto the other bars in town.
Never been here before but will visit again when next in Ilkley. Its been a while since I've been here but it is one of my favourite train station boozers, just it is pricey but its almost Central London and that's something you just have to put up with!
Being a Fuller's pub there range takes precedence but they also have a decent range of guest ales, my 3 pints of Butcombe Best were excellent, again it ain't cheap but when the beer and surrounds are good I'll pay it. I like this place and would recommend a visit. Myself and a pal didn't enter the quiz as it was already half way through when we arrived but we semi joined in without annoying anyone! Not normally I brewery I like but this ale was very good. Food was popular and the smell of burgers did linger a bit around the bar, not something I normally like but I suppose with it being busy it kind of blended in and felt right.
I like this place but a couple of pals always complain about the prices so I don't visit as often as I'd like to. Mis match furniture and spartan decor as is the Antic Pub Chains way but it works here as the pub doesn't have too many exposed walls or a damp smell. Gets a decent score from me. The Dartmouth has been more of a foodie pub for many years now but does still retain a small area in the middle where the bar is that's still like a pub, the front area is very foodie as well as the back room, with all tables lined up with napkins and cutlery.
My pal had the Gold and said it was more than drinkable, while I opted for a bottle from the fridge which was Brick Breweries Peckham Pils 4. Modern decor with old style tables and chairs, and some fancy wallpaper. We stayed for just one pint, the pub is decent enough and had a few people in on the Tuesday I visited, not sure why I haven't been in for a long time as it's alright.
This is a pub that I think I've only ever been in once before and that was many years ago when it was called the Hob. My most recent visit is a Tuesday night in January and by 7pm its nicely full.
Most people drinking in couples or groups with a table of 7 having a meal in the lower part of the bar. I didn't see or smell any food so on this I cannot comment. On the L shaped bar are at least 14 shiny keg taps with lagers, Guinness, cider and a couple of keg ales. The pub feels quite dark but I think that's down to the mood lighting, there's several lights hanging from ceiling across both parts of the open plan area. Wooden flooring throughout, a piano by the door and 2 really cool old school desks with attached seats.
Great to sit in one of these and write this review! Service was good, the ales was very good, it had a nice buzz about it and is opposite Forest Hill station. Bar area to the left as you enter through the front door with a separate dining area to the right.
The pub was pretty busy and the restaurant being half full. There's only 8 tables in the dining room with seating for around 22 people. Music played at a decent level through the bar and dining room. The walls in the dining area have many paintings, drawings and history of the village and local area as well as several stags heads, antlers and some taxidermy.
There's a cabinet stocked with miniature whiskey's, I didn't take a close look bit it seemed to be some collection. The food was very good especially if you like fish and reasonably priced. Service was attentive and food arrived swiftly. A flying visit really as after our meal and my 1 pint we left. As i didn't spend any time in the pub I cannot really comment, but the food was good and the pint I had was well kept. Pretty busy when I got here, the clientele can best be described as beer geeks!
A decent micro pub, music playing from a laptop, the young barman looked slightly bored but he was engaging in conversation with some locals. I worked my way through a few pumps with my ales being Flipside Brewery Flipping Best 4. There's also a decent Belgian bottle beer range.
The pub feels very much like a micro pubmaybe that's what it is! The pub has the feel of a chain pub say like Slug and Lettuce, its large and open plan with tables chair and high tables dotted around to fill the space and sells reasonable priced food but it just felt soulless, perhaps the smattering of punters didn't help. The bar has 5 hand pumps with 3 National ales and 1 real cider. Plenty of tv's above the bar and round the walls, pool table by the front door and several fruit machines.
A pleasant enough pub for a quick late morning beer but I don't think it'd be my pub of choice if I lived in this town. After a brisk walk from Lea Road station this is the first pub at the start of the pedestrianized shopping street. Shortly before 11am when I arrive and the place is three quarters full already, food and drink proving popular in equal measures. The long bar that runs the length of the right hand wall has 2 banks of 5 hand pumps, across these 8 pumps have ales on with 5 choice's.
Ruddles Best, Sharps Doombar and 3 local brews. Fairly swift service from the all female bar staff. Standard 'spoons decoration that doesn't feel tired, the tables and floors are clean. This was my first visit and I was more than impressed. A thoroughly good pub.
Where as the WH was packed and had live music, this one was quieter but was playing music from the well stocked jukebox. The wall above the bar and bar itself have bundles of pump clips on them. The pub is fully carpeted with old style tables and chairs. We stopped here for several pints until our train home at gone 10pm.
If I lived closer I would certainly use The Theobald over the White Hart, it just had a better feel to it and the ales were excellent.
The other ales were all smaller breweries so good to see no National brands on. Very busy with the whole of the large front bar packed, a band were warming up so I guess this is why it was so busy. From my quick visit I can confirm the White Hart is obviously a big part of the local area and has a loyal following, the clientele are slightly rough rounds the edges, but this is Grays after all, a tough town. The 4 of us were welcomed at the door by the steward who thanked us for our visit and explained a bit about the club, nice chap.
Mighty Oaks Maldon Gold was my choice from the 4 ales on the 4 pumps. I can report that all 3 pints I had were excellent. We stayed for almost 2 hours watching the game on the box and enjoying our ales.
A planned visit on our next trip to Canvey is on the agenda. Busy in the public bar where seating is at a premium while the other bar is more for diners. I think the Crooked Billet is a really good pub and best in the Old Town area. To the front is a large decking area overlooking the sea which I am told is very popular in the summer. I've given it a low score based on a pub. Wide frontage, with the long bar running down one side.
On the bar are 2 banks of 4 hand pumps with a total of 4 different ales on, my pint of Bombardier was very drinkable though its not one of my favourite ales. It was half busy with drinkers at the front and diners to the rear, live football on the TV with the sound on mute so this deterred anyway watching the match here.
Nice enough pub, better than the Peterboat but not as good as the Crooked Billet. Music playing and the tv was showing a news channel and was on silent. A nice place with good ales and a good one to start in. Got here at 9. Mainly with people eating with the clientele halved between local constructions workers and tourists from the hotel next door.
A tad too early for alcohol so I ordered a large veggie breakfast and a tea. Delivered swiftly, hot and very edible, the tea was also decent.
Impressive building with a stunning interior, this alone makes the pub worthy of a visit. Not sure whether it was due to being a Friday night or West Ham at home but it was ham packed. It's not the biggest place and the bar is in a slightly awkward position with the open plan kitchen behind it, pizzas were popular. As you would expect in a brewery bar the majority of the ales were from CrateI duly sampled their Milk Stout 5.
The building is basically a warehouse but when its busy it just feels like you're in a boozer. Worth a visit as it sells ales and I have on good authority the pizzas are decent.
It was my round so I went to bar to order only to be told by the miserable looking female bar manager that this would be our last drinks! God knows what her problem was as we were not loud or offensive and certainly were not causing any trouble, maybe she got the 3 of us confused with another group.
A quick flash of the match ticket and the 3 of us were in to sample the delights of this low light trendy pub. It was dark outside and as dark inside with the majority of the lighting coming from behind the open bar that serves both the front and back areas.

Only stopped for 1 pint on this occasion before moving back into town. Decent pub that was busy after the match, probably worth another visit on a non match day. With no where to sit we stood at the corner of the bar for the next 90 minutes or so chatting and enjoying our drinks. Because of this it was pretty chaotic with all the punters wanting food and drink so ordering took some time, no matter how many times I use this place it still amazes me how bad the service is.
Pretty busy at 7. Large u shaped wooden bar dominates as you enter with a larger area to the rear on the right hand side. It was now around 7pm when we arrived here and the pub was fairly busy. Friendly service, slightly rough clientele but no problems. I cannot remember the other options. We took our beers and parked up at the front by the large windows and close to the enormous Christmas tree that was sat in the corner. And boy it is different from my last visit. It used to be a traditional pub with a front lounge and pool table and public bar to the rear.
The lighting is also quite dim but I guess this is supposed to be atmospheric. The front lounge also has etched glass windows onto the main road. Not many punters in during my visit but the ales were good and the welcome even better so this may be a pub that I return to sooner than the 24 years I waited last time!
Still the clientele has remained unchanged and the whole pub has a slight air that any minute there might be a fight. Only stayed for 1, this is a fine pub spoilt by the clientele and believe me it gets much worse in the evenings and at weekends, handy for the station but that's why it gets so busy.
Relatively busy when I arrived with a mix of clientele and ages. Only 2 ales on cask so I went for a keg option from the 17 hand pumps. These were a mix of ales, lager and ciders with all but 3 coming from the UK. My choice of Weird Beard's Little things that kill 3. A nice enough place that is more of a bar than a pub but with a good choice of ales and a calm atmosphere it's worth a visit.
A large pub with plenty of seating and standing areas as well as the large room to the rear of the pub housing on my visit a huge Christmas tree, a pool table and a large projector screen. Friendly manager and staff made for a very pleasant evening. It's now a Nicholson's pub with a wide choice of ales across the 8 hand pumps. Just after 6pm on a Wednesday night before Christmas and the pub was heaving, workers from the local construction sites and tourists were the main clientele.
Internally the pub is stunning with walls stacked with Burmantoff tiles, several large wall painted artworks along with a large gold chandelier hanging above a glass domed ceiling towards the rear of the pub.
Plenty of tables, chairs and high tables are wedged at the rear of the pub towards the toilets making getting through a bit tricky especially during a busy visit like on this occasion.
Good selection of ales in a stunning interior, worth a visit for these 2 things alone. From the 5 ales on I had several pints of Hoppy Blonde 4. Stayed for a couple of hours before leaving for the match. Good pub, good service and great beer oh and the dogs were a lot more friendly this time. It was surprisingly quiet, but it did enable me to bag a seat and a fast pint.
My pint of Hardy and Hanson's Rocking Rudolph 4. I like this pub, the ales are normally good and there's never any bother here.
Nice part of town as well so a traditional pub is a perfect fit. Being near Christmas this pub was full with Christmas parties when I arrived at Interesting light hanging from the ceiling in the main bar that looks like a spider!
Decent pub but I've visited better today. The Queens is located in a mews just off of Queens Terrace and in my opinion you would need to know its here to find it. A charming pub that once you enter you realise it probably makes more money on food then booze however 8 hand pumps with 3 house ales and 5 guests no doubts help bring the punters in, in addition there is a large list if high quality lagers and craft ales on keg.
My choice of Roosters Little Bird 3. The pub was packed, there was a large party in for there Christies dinner as well as several other large parties eating and drinking so there was quite a buzz about the place. Only stopped for 1 beer but it was a good beer and another pub ticked from the GBG. On a busy main road but in a very nice residential area, this is a true locals pub and dining room. The pub dates from and us just a stone's throw away from number 11 where Charles Dickens resided.
A large open front with benches and umbrellas greets you as you approach, once inside its full wooden and brass. The bar stands directly in front of the main door and had an impressive 6 hand pumps with a good range of local and national branded ales. My pint of Southwark Brewery Routemaster Red 3. Food is popular with a separate dining room to the rear down some small steps. The main bar area is fairly small with all tables and stools taken. Appears in the GBG, on this my only visit I think its a worthy addition.
Just under half full at 10pm on a Thursday night. Pleasant bar staff, clean tables and no problem getting served…. The bar staff are pleasant. All in all a nice simple boozer. I may make another visit but with so many pubs in the area I doubt it.
Music played above the chatter. Most of the clientele appeared to be local workers. Stain glass windows and a barrelled door on the side give the pub a homely feel. This part of Fleet St is not an area I have spent much time in so this was another new pub for me. At least 3 of these seemed to be guests. I went for a pint of Everards Sly Fox 4. Plenty of age to the pub coupled with a slopping floor towards the bar.
I liked this pub, stayed for 2 pints and only left when it started getting really busy. The last time I was here the pub was an O'Neils and pretty bog standard it was too. Its now a Nicholson's pub with 7 ales on the 8 hand pumps. Most of the ales were from National brands and can be found almost anywhere, apart from the Christmas offering from Thornbridge which was Wild Holly 4. Lots of chatter above the non descript music that was playing, pleasant bar staff, neat decoration and a good location.
Certainly worthy of another visit. Pretty empty so no annoying local workers, it did the job for a quick pint. Busy when I arrived at 5. My pints of Arkell's Sir Neol 5. To the rear is a large garden which was mainly being used as a smoking area due to it being December and pretty chilly. According to a pal of mine that visited several other pubs in the town on the same day this was by far the best. I would tend to agree but then The Manor House was the only one I visited.
It was packed with several groups so getting served took a short while due to indecisive punters and one or two bar staff not knowing who was next. I stayed on the cask ales and had 2 pints of London Gold that were both very drinkable. Nice pub, busy, not overly cheap but it is in a large tourist area. We arrived after a 20 minute walk from the stadium in the pouring rain, greeted warmly by the landlord and a few chatty locals. There is 1 bar that serves the 2 very different rooms, both of them had live rugby on.
The Red Lion overlooks a lock but on the day we visited the rain was so bad you could barely see outside. The welcome is warm inside as was the fire that was on.
