The Stoke in Guildford

A long internal space, semi-divided into three, maybe four sections. The middle section houses the bar where the room returns back leading to an open pizza kitchen. They looked good value if you like that sort of thing with mini 6" versions available if you just fancy a snack. The far right hand end had a pair of pool tables and a pinball machine (Indiana Jones) plus some seating away from the tables. Unusually the TV in here was showing some ice hockey game while the football was shown in the bar. Nearer to the bar an internal space had more comfortable seating and a piano, most seating around the bar area being at stools.
I arrived here to find a mini beer festival on the go showcasing beers from the local Little Beer Corporation all on stillage however they were all £4.50 across the range which I felt was excessive so I stuck with a pint of Andwell Spring Magic from the bar at a more sensible £3.85. Others on were Dorking Smokestack Lightnin' and Hammerpot Vinery Mild. One was reverse clipped. Scores of beermats stuck to various surfaces suggest an ever changing range.
Shelves contained a fair old selection of games and a few books, various events were listed, comedy night, zumba whatever that is, a quiz and 80s dance night. There is a nice enough bit of garden to the side.
I liked it here, it was nicely busy but not too much so and had a good mix in from older couples eating, lads playing pool and a few watching the match on TV. A good double up with the pub opposite.

An old pub with a couple of extensions tagged on to either side which to an extent spoils the exterior view of the pub, opened out inside into a long room probably at the expense of some of the ambiance this pub may once have had. Red carpet throughout with light coloured walls,some tall tables and chairs and some sofas,there was a slight club like feel to the place which did not endear me to it. Three ales on to complement the usual fizz, these were,Fullers London Pride, Arundle Sussex Gold and Porter Street Oval 6 which obviously was a cricket themed beer but despite this was an OK beer in decent condition. The pubs alright for a quick stop off but I wouldn't go out of my way again.

I’ve found some good articles about hops in the Journal of the Institute of Brewing. And I’ve only been looking in the 1950’s. The one I’m looking at this time has a nice overview of long term trends in English hop cultivation. [INDENT]“Hops have always been quick to react to demand and ....
