The Crown Inn, Frome

Brian, the new landlord, has skilfully revived this lovely little pub as a hub of the local community without damaging its traditional character. The decor seems little changed since the 1950's, and the menu extends to a pickled egg in a bag of crisps. But if you want a welcoming, unpretentious place for conversation, pub games, good beer (Bass plus a guest) and a sense of community, look no further. A real public house, and an unspoiled gem.

The Dove Inn, Corton

Gosh - has someone spent money on this place! And what a waste! The countryside may be unspoiled but the "sympathetic modernising" has created a monstrosity far removed from any notion of "village pub". The pretentious menu may suit some people, but after a good walk on the Wiltshire downs this was a big disappointment. The beer was indifferent and there was nowhere comfortable to sit. For posh-car owners only.

The New Inn, Hurstpierpoint

Tarted up again, and another step away from being a local public house. Beer acceptable but no longer a place to dawdle away an hour or two with good conversation or a good book. Too Islington, too unfriendly.
