I must admit it's a while since I was in the White Hart but I don't think I've ever been in when they had three real ales on tap Hermit. It's usually been two and quite often one as the other has run out. Maybe things have improved.

I only trust certain pubs in the Palace to drink Ale in

Railway Bell , Grape & Grain & the Weatherspoon

Would concur with Dazza - G&G is consistent in how it keeps its ale although JDW surprisingly have turned up a few duds. Railway Bell - again consistent.

Agree. I've never had a bad pint in the G&G. Railway bell is not a regular haunt, but the few times I've been, the beer has been good. Can't speak for the Wetherspoons: have not attended it. I've been less impressed with the beer from others in the triangle.

Just peeped through the door at The White Hart and they have three ale pumps but with only two on, so I think that we are both kinda right, Gekko...sort of. :unsure:

I agree with the genaral consensus that the G+G has the best kept ales, a bit of a skill in getting it right and Rick is a craftsman.

The Grape & Grain serve ale as an artform really. I think other hostelries on the triangle possibly just serve it to make up the numbers and save having a third Fosters draught.

Alma does good Guinness though it has to be said.

For what it's worth, Weatherspoons start their beer festival tommorow. They have 60 beers listed in their brochure but unsure how many will be on at The Postal Order.

We are down to a minority of three who admit to drinking in there....

Still, 1.89 per pint, can't go wrong.

I always pop in there for the occasional Pint when I see someone in there I know.

I've becoming a big fan of Westerham Brewery's beers. For a small brewery their range of alses ar impressive and they are all good. The 'Spoons regularly has a Westerham offering on the pumps.

British Bulldog and Freedom are both nice. But my favourite from the last few years is Enville Ale... if anyone finds somewhere selling this stuff, tell me!

Also beers from the Marble brewery in Manchester. Lovely stuff.

Another fan of Westerham Ales, can't go wrong with theirs. Had a realy nice summer ale recently, don't remember name though.
Was up at spoons tonight, had nice Bath Ale 'Ginger Hare', a cross between bitter and ginger ale, worth trying.
Glad that our number is now up to five, was only counting members that had mentioned it on this thread.
