The Goat & Tricycle, Bournemouth

The Goat & Tricycle, Bournemouth

The Goat & Tricycle, 27-29 West Hill Road, Bournemouth BH2 5PF. Telephone: 01202 314220. Website: http://www.goatandtricycle.co.uk/
Pig Mark 84. The Goat & Tricycle is a Wadworth pub with up to eleven guest ales on offer at any time. It was created by joining together two pubs that were next to each other. I’m going to go out on a limb here and guess they were called The Goat and The Tricycle. According to the website, it is often referred to as Bournemouth’s best-kept secret, tucked away as it is along a backstreet in Bournemouth’s Triangle area. It is certainly a case of once seen, never forgotten. They also offer food from noon to 9 pm including pizzas as well as more traditional pub fare. They only serve over 18s, so not a pub to bring the kids for lunch.

The Express Tavern, Brentford

The Express Tavern, Brentford

The Express Tavern, 56 Kew Bridge Road, Brentford, TW8 0EW. Telephone: 020 8560 8484. Website: http://www.expresstavern.co.uk
Pig Mark 81. A free house opposite Kew Bridge, The Express Tavern has been standing since at least the 1800s when it was a coaching inn along the main London to Bath route. In 2014 it was taken over by the same company that runs The Sussex Arms in Twickenham and after some refurbishment reopened ready to serve food and a fine selection of ten ales and five ciders. The character wasn’t lost in the renovations and it retains a sense of history in its decor, particularly in the smaller bar where the beer pumps are.
