Its doesn’t stop there, the  food served here is also of the top order. There is range of local and near local beers for the beer-fest  two of which became my favorites the black cherry mild, the Lambert Walk Porter an exciting beer almost black with a an aroma and flavor that had the taste buds completely tantalized for more. I tasted the BBQ  with sausages prepared by Angelo Brotto with an Italian recipe handed down from family recipes, slightly spicy, no fillers and taste that is very rare probably never found in shop sausages, these were brilliant and i will go back for more and,  try to ascertain the secrets of  making these myself for my bbq’s in Ukraine.The Charles Holden is indeed lucky to have the professional, charismatic Claude Page as its manager, who is equally at home speaking to his staff in English, French or Spanish, he has his finger on the pulse of whats  happening anywhere in the pub. The Pub has delightful and large gardens which today had a bouncy castle , face painting for the kids, it was a shame after all these efforts that the weather  and rain were more befitting of November rather, than half way through April

The Charles Holden is in the New Pub Company, of family pubs,  as is  the Hare and Hounds my own village pub. I thank Nick mine host there for his kindness for his  invite today. All of the pubs in the group  seem to be really family pubs with games and, books for kids they have filled a niche which people are really enjoying with quiz nights, singing nights, nights of there entertainment and themed eating occasions.

all in all a great day out!
