The Prince of Wales, Farnborough

Great traditional backstreet pub, a little out of town, but well worth the walk.
10 hand pumps on, apparently 5 are usually available:- Dark Star Hophead, Ringwood Fortyniner, Andwell Gold Muddler, Hopback Summer Lightning and "Fullers" London Pride!!!. Guest beers today are Weltons Swing Low, Weltons Broadwood Wassail, Hopback GFB, Broken Bridge Red Alert and Plain Ales Inncognito. Also Thornbridge Jaipur as a "craft" keg. Bar staff offered a taster, with a smile.
Hum of groups of people eating curry (Monday's only) and drinking, with a gas fire blazing away in the main bar.
Well worth its reputation.

The Swan, Farnborough

Large pub immediately next to the airstrip and aviation museum. Long bar split into 2 seperate areas and a third area for eating. A fine and reasonably priced menu, a cut above pub grub.
For a pub this size and with the footfall that it must get, I am surprised that there are only 4 hand pumps. That said, my pint was in top condition and all 4 pumps were from smaller breweries, well done for avoiding the Doom Bar or Pride trap!
Staff were polite and attentive and I would recommend this pub heartedly, for a beer, for food or for both.
