Farnborough isn't blessed with many great pubs near the centre of town and whether or not the Tumbledown qualifies depends very much on your outlook. It is certainly a little bit shabby inside and won't win awards for haute cuisine or beer selection, but what it does possess is character. The walls are adorned with various band paraphernalia, which you can peruse along with the list of forthcoming gigs while the many black-clad regulars select from the rock-oriented jukebox. At the back is a large live music venue, playing host to local bands and tribute acts, while every Friday there is a club night. If this, or the main bar, don't interest then a smaller side room hosts two pool tables. There appears to be debate about how the pub derived its name, perhaps from the downfall of Richard Cromwell, son of Oliver, or because of an association with the famous highwayman Dick Turpin.

A Farnborough landmark, just down from the Old Clockhouse, this pub has been closed for some time after issues were found with the condition of the building.

Much sordid political wrangling at the council offices has left the establishment game for McDonald's acquisition, so it's more likely to be smoothies and shakes from now on, than beer....
