Beer: A Day Off Recommendation

All hail a day off! My day off in this particular case...

So, today's beer absolutely has to come from somewhere other than close to home. Especially on a nice sunny day like today. Where shall it be? I think I have a couple of recommendations for those reasonably local. One will be for the quality and variety of ales you can get, the other for really enjoying the sunshine (if you can get some, that is). Both are in Guildford. The first pub, and a very nice one at that (provided you hit on it when the bar staff is not grumpy - which is, sadly, not often) is The Three Pigeons. I love the fact they seem to be able to find good real ales even if they do not bill themselves as a real ale pub. The other one, down on the river, is The Boatman. As someone rightly commented "it has probably the nicest outlook" in all Guildford. And they'll do you a real ale, too. Not too much choice, but enough not to steer clear. Looks like it has good food, too.

So, no point in holding you or rather, me up.
Very soon it's Friday lunchtime...
