King’s Head, Whiteparish busy with diners and drinkers. Three ales available: Downton Dream, St Austel Proper Job and Timothy Taylor Landlord.

Parish Lantern – Landlord Paul Cooper has just celebrated 30 years at the pub – well done Paul! Beers included Bath Ales Gem, Downton New Forest Ale, Hop Back Citra all were excellent.

Landford Poacher – busy with drinkers and a few diners. Flack Manor Double Drop in fine fettle.

Green Dragon, Alderbury – Hop Back Fugglestone and Taiphoon, both ales we don’t see regularly. Fugglestone was not drinkable but was swapped without question as soon as the cask was changed. Taiphoon was fine though a little cold.
