    Pleased to say that I've only ever been in 5 on that list,despite being born and living in Surrey until my early 20's.

    Read the headline.
    See who sponsors it.
    Don't say you weren't warned.

    List here

    Not sure the name of the third placed pub is entirely appropriate...on the other hand it may be

    There are many diseases,
    that strike people's kneeses,
    Covid19! is one by name
    It comes from the East

    So the Chinese must take half the blame.

    I've been to two-both pre gastro, and in the case of the Compasses, pre-Sheps.

    I'm sure there's been a similar list to this before! I've definitely been to five and possibly the Highgate one all when the talk of a gastro-pub would get the response "Wot Dat?".

    The Beehive at White Waltham was an ordinary village pub that made for a good GBG listed stop on the way back from a Brakspear foray.
    The Anchor & Hope in SE1 I believe was the first Well's pub in London. I've played darts in there and eaten the gastro sarnies (NOT!).
    The Flitch of Bacon in Little Dunmow was a very plain Bass Charrington village pub.
    The Alma in Wandsworth was arguably the roughest Young's pub in Wandsworth before the brewery started ruining them and then selling out.
    The Marksman in East London was a rough old East End pub that went onto the Real Ale bandwagon and got a GBG listing.

    I'm not sure I've ever been to a gastro-pub.

    9 out of 50 and surprisingly, 3 out of the Top 10. I'm obviously a bigger and posher sod than I thought.

    I remember going into The Coach before Kerridge got his mitts on it when it was the Coach & Horses - a run-down town boozer-cum-Chinese. Not sure which incarnation I preferred better...

    I did go into The Anchor and Hope last year,about 20 minutes before advertised closing but the chair's were already upside down on the table's and they wouldn't serve me. Their loss not mine.

    The Anchor & Hope is the only one on this list that I've been to,quite recently and enjoyed the food. Not a great place for a session ,however.

    I'm putting my hands up to just two on this list, Newbury and Guildford.
