I went in there once...never again. Luckily I was a)quite pished, b)very very angry about getting divorced and c)recognised by someone from 5 AB Bde HQ &Signal Squadron! Another bloke who walked in afterwards was bitten in the face about fifteen minutes later by a nutter.
Someone is bound to say 5's in Aldershot, but although it had a reputation due to 9 Sqn 'taking in on' and it changing its name from the mincing title of '5's Wine Bar' to the slightly laughable '5's the Airborne Inn', it wasnt a pub that the non-airborne feared to enter, I as a craphat and hospital based medic frequently strolled in there for a pint in one of its lovely plastic glasses. Same as the 'Exchange' and the 'Rat Pit'. The GT (GlobeTrotter) however wasnt a place to be found in!
For a shoeing - Cheeks in Aldershot.
For a case of ptomaine poisoning, try The Deviator in Carterton.
The Irish Bar in the Mustafa Hotel Kabul was a great place for a pint of Guinness and a chance to dodge NDs cracked off by drunk PMCs. But the pashtuns have taken it over now and the place is, alas, devoid of atmosphere. And dry.
Worst pub in the world - so bad that it is avoided by discerning 'squaddies' - has to be The Round Robin between Pennywell and Ford in Sunderland.
