- Barley Mow Shepperton Gets Special Award
Friday 16 July 2021
The Barley Mow in Shepperton Green, is a previous CAMRA Branch Pub of the Year, and has also regularly appeared in the Good Beer Guide, for consistently poured great pints and a warm welcome.
It has now been granted a CAMRA Golden Award for standing the test of time. It has, and continues to make, a significant contribution to CAMRA’s aims, helping us get to where we are today. Next time you're over Shepperton Green way, why not check it out? Well done John Keary and his team.
- COVID Roadmap Update
Monday 12 July 2021
The Government have confirmed that on 19th July 2021 remaining legal limits on social contact will be removed. On question of face coverings, they seem to be back peddling slightly, but are shoving responsibility onto businesses, maybe as a condition of entry or travel. Not sure how the transport unions will react to the potential threat this poses to their members such as bus drivers. In the 7 days to 4th July, admissions to St Peters Hospital are up 1100% (you read that right) albeit from a low base number, and at that point only one patient on a ventilator which is good news. We all still need to be careful and considerate of others as regulations start to relax
We can of course already visit our local for a decent pint with others, subject to rule of six indoors, and don't forget Beers & Brewing for local real ale. Picture shows people enjoying a pint at the London Irish Beer festival in Sunbury back in 2019. For news of 2021 please see Diary & What's On.

- The George at Addlestone - Change of Use Planning Application
Monday 15 February 2021
The George at Addlestone has been closed for some time, and despite pubco's minimal efforts, no new tenant was found. Unsurprisingly having been left to deteriorate badly, it is now subject of an application for change of use and redevelopment as 3 dwellings. As this will retain current listed building albeit in altered form, application is supported by the Borough Conservation Office, so things don't look good. For more info see planning application RU.21/0071 on the Runnymede Borough Council planning portal.
