The geography round here is confusing. There is a long unpleasant housing 
estate stretching from Kingston Bagpuize House and Gardens to a hotel 
called Freshfields. The hotel claims to be in Longworth, a settlement 
which has its nucleus about a mile and a half to the north and on the far 
side of the A420. The other component of Longworth is this pub, which is 
on a dead end of track (that used to be the Faringdon road) on the far 
side of a roundabout from Kingston Bagpuize and Southmoor.

The phone book lists it as Faringdon Road, but there's a road sign saying 
"Lamb and Flag Road" at the roundabout.

The pub itself has an ample car park, fences to lean your bike against, 
evidence of a bouncy castle in summer months, and the most intriguing 
false ceiling I have yet seen. It's made of wattle (as in 
wattle-and-daub), and the landlady is worried about the spiders in it.

There is NO BITTER ON CASK. I was glad to make do with coffee. Fine as a 
stopping off point on an extended cycle run, but not worth making the trek 
out for. You're better off with the Blue Boar on the far side of the 
bypass. (20.ii.1999)
