Chidham Best Bitter - a community minded beer!
John Huetson is doing something a bit different . The Old House at Home plans to sell Chidham Best Bitter (4.2%), brewed by Langham Brewery. Tasting notes say it is a deep, golden beer, the nose has tropical fruit with a smooth maltiness in the back ground. It has a balanced dry and bitter finish with floral hop aroma.
But just as important, this will be a beer for the whole community. For every pint sold 10p will go to a local project starting with Cobnor Activities centre who need a new engine for one their rescue boats.

So when you fancy a pint, you can choose Chidham Best and support a range of community projects.

Chidham Best Bitter will be available at The Old House at Home from Friday 5th August 2011.

Have you ventured into the garden of The Old House at Home recently?


Jane has done wonders.

A lovely place to relax with a cool summer drink.

Binge drinking and the budget
There is much comment that the duty on alcohol should be increased to lessen the scourge of binge drinking.
John Huetson of 'The Old House at Home' is concerned that country pubs could be unintended casualties of any such duty hike and has written to our MP accordingly - see his letter and the reply received.
Reply from Kevin Brennan MP and covering note from Andrew Tyrie

Tues Dec 18 Bad luck for the Old House at Home
Following a recent chimney fire, the pub had the bad luck for the brick wall in front of the pub to be in collision with a combine harvester. A combine harvester ....in December! Apparently the combine was going very slowly at the time. Opinion in the pub was divided on what speed the wall was doing.

Reporter Allison Ferns from BBC Southern Counties Radio with John Huetson in 'The Old House and Home'

Allison was broadcasting short live pieces from Chidham - the 'place of the day' - for the Tommy Boyd show. She interviewed several people including Olga Baldwin, Mark Covell and Robin Yeld, as well as John and Jane Huetson.
Why Chidham? It was a random choice.

John and Jane Huetson moved into the Old House at Home during the summer, and have been making improvements upstairs. When this is finished, they have plans to make improvements to the Bar area.

Previously they were at 'The Crown' in Emsworth.

Welcome to Chidham!
