    An unusually high 6/10 for me.

    The list we've all been waiting for! 12 or 13 for me at a quick glance, albeit a handful of those have changed their names since I visited.

    6 and I'm not too upset about that.

    None for me,again.Possibly went to the Fordwhich Arms in the early seventies.

    8, I think.

    Don't recall eating in any of them, mind you!

    And one of them is this place - The Hand & Flowers

    Like the Coach (same owner), there was an assumed tab and a “we’ll bring them over” from the bar staff. So we thought it was a bit pretentious but fair enough. So imagine our surprise to find on our receipt that we had been charged for the privilege! I put them right on that score quick enough but rather got the feeling that despite their claims to the contrary, this was occasional practice when they think they can get away with it.

    That was in 2016, so maybe things have moved on a bit...I haven't felt the inclination to go back and find out.

    I work in Marlow and it's the only pub in the town I haven't visited, simply because I thought solo drinkers were frowned upon/discouraged. Think I'll have to pay a visit to see what the lay of the land is nowadays.

    Not only did I post this 10 days ago but you replied to it, Tris!! If you go to the source, rather than the London Evening Comic, you will find 100 of them.

    In fairness, there are some splendid historic pubs in there (and even a few very good ones) and I suppose it is better that they survive in some form rather than just closing down.
    Please to report that I've only been in 6,and only eaten in The Anchor & Hope.The others where beer has been consumed were The Baring,Guinea Grill,Dawnay Arms,Marksman and Dylans/Kings Arms.

    The Rambling Pig ,Ewell seems to have expanded into the King William IV which was a drinking hole of choice in the village when I was young but that was a very long time ago now.
