For yesterday's family day out we returned to the Surrey Hills (www.surreyhills.org), and took a truly spectacular circular walk based around Holmbury St Mary finishing on Holmbury Hill. Holmbury itself is halfway round the walk, so it's a good place to stop for a pint and something to eat. We stopped at both pubs, for an Everards Tiger at the Royal Oak and a Shere Drop at the King's Head. The Shere Drop, from the Surrey Hills Brewery, is delicious - bright and hoppy. It's pictured here. Of course, as we were drinking outside, it was probably lightstruck fairly quickly. While I'm on the subject of beer, I enjoyed Badger First Gold on our Dorset trip a couple of days ago. Another quite bitter, hoppy brew, which I think is my preference in cask ales.
