Back home after a short narrowboat trip on the Ouze. Very quiet in the New Inn toninght - but good beer selection as always.

As the Two Sawyers is currently closed came here instead. 7 beers on starting from £3.20 a pint. Quite a few in around 13:30. Friendly barman.

About 6 - must have just missed Andrew? Sat in the bar and talked about barrels and suchlike - the barman's father was a Cooper and was going to emigrate to Canada to make fish barrels - but got convicted for stealing a gross of screws that put paid to his dream! Same beers as Andrew as well as Ripple IPA.
