    Soups you really must know how to tell the difference between ostentation ie TWIGS (thin branches in glass vases for mere effect) and the wonderful example of the country tradesman's art of thatching.
    I cannot remember a thing about the inside of the pub so it may well have had twigs stylishly displayed as obj e d'art. Wonder what the beer was?
    If you tried eating those ducks I bet they would taste like old shredded wheat. YUK.

    I remember it a long long time ago with a Strongs sign so it would have sold Whitbread Trophy and stuff after 1969, I don't think I ever went in though. I don't know what it sells now but I'll bet it's quite a foody place. Running Dog might have been there more recently as it's near his neck of the woods.

    Tell us, now, how and when
    We may find the bravest men?

    Yep, it's the Barleycorn. Not a pub I use, the nearby White Horse sells better beer and much better food. And it'd easier to get to from the A/M27, but, it also charges more. Neither's a real ale paradise..........

    Pubs are a hobby, real ale is a passion. Oh, and like me dogs, fear no evil..........

    I think it's the Sir John Barleycorn, Cadnam which is just off the end of the M27 in the New Forest.
    Good grief! I have to admit I'm seriously impressed by that 'ob'.

    It is something else isn't it, I wish my memory/observation was a fraction as good, I have been known to walk past my front door.

    "I have been known to walk past my front door." Conrad.

    I was so preoccupied that one day I walked in to next door. No, preoccupied does not equal drunk, well not in this case. She did not mind. I will draw a veil over the rest.
