Evening until close. One can not avoid conversation here so I never managed to start reading the pub's latest copy of Private Eye (beyond the front cover).
Kent - Firestarter4.90ExcellentInitially a very smoked beer smell and taste but this quickly dissipates to a nice bitter. A Marmite pint I guess - hated it at first then ordered a second!
