The Bear, Horsham 2nd December 2006

The final part of a short pub crawl around Horsham...

Badger King & Barnes' Sussex Bitter (3.5%): I tried this when Hall and Woodhouse started making it several years ago and was really impressed. However, if today's beer was anything to go by, it has changed a lot recently. Very disappointing, flat beer with not much flavour. Maybe it was the end of the barrel, although my knowledgeable companion said it always tastes like this. Served too cold and barely drinkable.

In spite of the disappointing beer, the pub was a revelation. I must have been here a lot as a child as I recognised the interior and had a strong feeling of deja-vu. A very comfortable and cozy pub with an open fire although it did take an inordinate amount of time to get served.
