Late afternoon a few groups dotted about in this impressive beer sanctum. I should have asked if the stainless steel LED illuminated breweriana was for show or in use. Approaching from the station side the place appeared closed so bear this in mind if your planning a first visit here.

Early evening. One barman serving the counter and waitering meals resulted in quite a wait for a beer.

Evening. Good loading at the end of the Bank Holiday. Disappointed to find 6% Green Devil IPA on fizz only here and also to read in the local CAMRA magazine that the Real Ale in a Bottle version has been withdrawn in favour of a filtered version. What is happening?

The pub is found in Peterborough, Cambridgeshire, PE1 2AA.

In Westgate. One of two Oakham tied pubs in the city and for any beer lover, this is nothing less than a pilgrimage. Sited next to the brewery, it has 15 handpumps (in banks of 4, 4 and 7) selling Oakham beers, guests and ciders, a 1 a.m. licence and a Thai kitchen. Superb. One can order four pint jugs or multiple pint take outs to drink at home. Up to 4 guest beers are also served. Split level pub with plenty of seating upstairs. Both the brewery and the kitchen can be seen through plate glass windows. For this contributor (Ian), this is absolute heaven. Always under threat of re-development for a future shopping proposition. Strong local following is always defending from this possible act of vandalism. CAMRA discount on real ales for card carrying members.

We have visited this pub 24 times, seen 43 different beers and tried 18 of them.
