Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Harrows Inn

Modernised but still traditional pub at the edge of the village on the main A449. The main bar side is entered via a snug and has been partly opened-out from two rooms (one with a dartboard), and the separate lounge is now more of a dining room. A small patio area can also be found on the car park side. Although a Punch Taverns house, it is also deservedly Good Beer Guide listed, with Banks's Mild, Fyne Ales Jarl, Three Tuns XXX (£2.80), Ludlow Gold, Oakham Helter Skelter and Titanic Plum Porter available from the six handpumps when I visited.

Small one room locals pub owned by Punch Taverns, it has a long and narrow L shaped public bar which has an L shaped counter on the left, at the back of the room where it bends round to the left there are a couple of steps up to a second level. Here there is a central chimney breast which is no longer used, pool table, dart board and a large flat screen TV in the corner with paintings of birds on the walls. The pub has started doing a Sunday carvery and there is a large paved patio area behind the pub which has several picnic tables.

Regular ales are Banks’s Bitter and Mild with a single changing guest beer. The Tetley Mild keg pump clip was still on the bar but they said that they didn’t sell it since the change of landlord, but they have had so many enquiries that they were considering having it back which would be great as it’s a very rare beer in these parts.

This is a nice cosy local’s pub that has a homely feel, unfortunately it has struggled in recent years due to several changes of management. Hopefully the new landlord can give some stability and start to get the old regulars and locals back in, being on a busy main road they can expect a decent amount of passing trade which should also help.

This is a detached white rendered main road pub, with a beer garden. The pub opens and closes faster than Billy Whizz's fly zip - but has just re-opened again this week with a former gaffer of the 4 Ashes up the road at the helm.

The interior is an open plan L-shaped room, with the lounge/dining near the entrance and the bar, with pool table and dart board is on a slightly higher level at the far end of the pub. The decor is toffee colour and white, with ceiling beams. A few sports trophies are dotted about, with some general prints on the walls. The service is fine, the clientele were local and mature (i think they knew the new gaffer already) but considering this place was empty a couple of days before when i popped in, he is getting it on the road to recovery. I didnt eat, but they do food, or soon will when the kitchen is finshed being re-vamped. The background music was 60s and quiet. A couple of guys were playing dominoes and it felt like it had been open for years.

Beer; tap stuff, with Banks's Bitter, London Pride and a decent Banks's MILD on handpull.

Nice to see this place open again. Sad to see the Tetley MILD go, but at least this place has real ale now.
