Blackthorn _ left this review about Jubilee Inn

Since my last review, this pub has been closed for refurbishment (twice), taken over by Cardiff based Brains and changed it’s name back to The Jubilee Inn. This was a rare case of a brewery asking punters which name they wanted, and unsurprisingly the overwhelming response was to revert back to the pub’s original name. Service is also much improved with prompt and friendly service at the bar as well as a cheery goodbye when we left.

The refurbishments have left the basic layout largely unchanged but it now has a slightly more generic feel and has perhaps lost a little of it’s character. Flooring is a mixture of mottled tiles in the central area with wood strip and carpet elsewhere. Paintwork is the usual gastro-pub shades of grey and green whilst there is cream wood panelling on the lower part of the walls and a few old black and white photographs of the local area dotted around. The larger half of the pub was all laid up for dining on a recent Sunday lunchtime visit, with only couple of smaller rooms at the front seeming to be available for drinkers. Of these, one was a high-ceiling room with a fire-place to one side, although this appeared to be decorative rather than functional. With it’s sage paintwork and a large rug on the floor, it was in some ways reminiscent of a hotel drawing room. The other smaller room was much cosier with a low beamed ceiling, although rather oddly the beams had all been painted white which detracted from the ambience somewhat.

Despite six hand pumps on the bar, the solitary beer offering was Rev James. A couple of others appeared to have run out, so there may perhaps on occasions be others. Ciders meanwhile were Aspall’s Suffolk and Symonds Founders Reserve.

Blackthorn _ left this review about Dew Drop Inn

On first impressions this pub seems to be called “Two for One”. That's certainly what the pub sign swinging in the car park says. On closer inspection of the pub itself, we find that it is indeed called the Dew Drop Inn. I'm always a little suspicious of places that offer food deals such as this. Doing a two-for-one offer for a limited time to showcase a new menu or chef, or for one night a week when it would otherwise be quiet is one thing. But all day, every day is something else entirely. No business can sustain itself permanently by selling everything at half it's value. Clearly if a dish is on the menu at £8, you know it's really only going to be worth £4. In their defence I suppose I ought to point out that I think this may apply only to main courses, so perhaps they hope to make up for it on other courses and drinks. Certainly it always looks busy, there's always plenty of cars in the car park. But then McDonalds is always busy, so that doesn't really prove anything.

Anyhow, enough of my ramblings. It's an attractive pub that's draws attention to itself with rope lights around the rafters, and it's got a suitably cosy country pub ambience to it. It's a good size with several different areas inside, some more geared up for eating but there's no problem finding somewhere to have a pint either. There's a large beer garden out the back, although unfortunately the tall trees completely block the evening sun.

Service was a little slow with just one person serving at around 7:00 in the evening, when they could reasonably be expected to be getting busy. I don't visit this pub often, but from memory this seems to be a recurring theme here. What really annoyed me though was the attitude of the landlady. There were two people in front of me at the bar, one ordering food and paying by the card, the other buying a round of six drinks. So I was waiting for quite some time. She couldn't fail to notice me as there was no one else waiting and I was stood right by the pumps she was using. I got no acknowledgment, greeting or apology. When she eventually got round to serving me, there was still no apology. In fact she didn't even speak, she just sort of raised her eyebrows to indicate that she was ready to take my order. Unbelievable.

I avoided this pub for a long time as the only cider they had was Strongbow, so it's good to see a marginal improvement in that they now do Blackthorn. Beers were Ringwood Best and Pedigree.
