No. 19 The Bromfield Arms
Visited on 10/3/11. Just over the road from the Faulkner, home of the 'Hoole Poseur', you could argue that 'the Brom' caters for the opposite end of the drinking spectrum. This is a big pub with about 50 odd flat screen TVs all seemingly tuned in to Sky Sport channels for the entire time the pub is open. Unsurprisingly, the bulk of the clientele are fat middle-aged, replica footy shirt wearing tellyclappers. In effect, it's become a temple dedicated to the worship of Rupert Murdoch. The ale was alright (Wychwood Hobgoblin), but any pub that prominently displays a 'This is Anfield' sign behind the bar is going to get slagged off by me. Let me put it succinctly - avoid.
