    Naturally a food oriented list but I've been to the three near Basingstoke (Sun Inn, White Hart and Hoddington Arms) and three of the four in Yorkshire even though they didn't get the region in bold. The Yorkshire three are all spookily just off the A1M at junctions 47 & 48 (Blue Bell, Grantham Arms, Alice Hawthorn). And what happened to the North East, and just one each for Wales and Scotland? Looks like some metropolitan wanker just looked at previous lists and colour supplements.

    That is probably the worst list of "great" pubs that I've ever seen.

    Dave can we have a metropolitan wanker emoji please?

    I was coming to that conclusion when looking at the South East section and finding places I hadn't even heard of!

    I went to the Compasses at Crundale years ago, before Sheps bought it, and we do visit the Globe and Rainbow,Kilndown fairly often.OK,it's foodie, but has a strong wet trade.Harvey's Sussex Best Bitter is always available, and Dark Star Hophead makes an appearance, so it ticks a lot of boxes for me. None of the others, though the Duke William at Ickham, and the Duck at Pett Bottom are on the list. The Duck more so, because a) of the name, b) of the James Bond associations and c) because I've heard good reports about the beer (Gravity).

    Why shouldn't it count? The fact you were there before it was transformed to a gastro-dump should be celebrated

    The Sun was a dump of a Courage pub if I recall correctly, the Queen Inn may have been the more obvious choice. The White Hart at Overton appears to have had something of a makeover, I did say in my review it had unrealised potential.

    The White Hart is now owned by Upham Brewery, not been there since, but don't like their beers anyway.

    Quite honestly the Marksman was a bit of a dive, few pubs in Hackney / Bethnal Green weren't in those days. Stoke Newington was just as bad. When the Rochester Castle became the JDW Tanners Hall it was a palace.
