The Kings Arms, Tring

A change of ownership at the start of 2014, has seen this near legendary Tring boozer take a step forward in its cask beer offering.

Gone is the permanent Wadsworth 6X, to be replaced by Tring Brewery's Moongazing. Four other constantly rotating real ales compliment the house hand pull and these are chosen cleverly with variety in mind. A real cask cider completes the line up.

The beer is definitely as well kept by the new landlord, Rob, but dare I say that the variety on the bar is somewhat better than before.

I haven't tried the food but reportedly it's very good too.

No need to change my 10/10 rating.

't Brugs Beertje, Bruges

Name that bar steppedup! (see below)

I've been in a fair few of the bars in Bruges and on my last visit I was inexorably drawn back here.

It hasn't got the biggest beer selection or the nicest toilets (if you're spending enough time in them to be able to form a strong opinion you are either suffering from a gastric complaint or a pervert) in town, but it just all works

I've not experienced a lack of atmosphere at all, just great beer and even better conversation. Look out for my new found chum, "Black Beauty" on his stool by the bar. One of the regulars; pony tail, facial hair and wicked sense of humour!

I could spend the all day in this place, so it's the only bar I've ever given a 10 on BITE.

The Rake, London Bridge

Had a couple of visits to The Rake last week and I had a different experience to the last poster.

I had a good chat about the merits of Sheffield for a beer tour with the older guy behind the bar and the two younger lads were really happy to chat about the beers and make recommendations for my next drink based on my preferences. Perhaps they respond better to a more chatty approach?
