Two of us arranged to meet up for lunch in here before going to visit a friend who is now in residential care. This was my first visit here and I found the place to be very busy and welcoming, but I thought that a poorly supervised toddler crawling about between tables could have created a potential trip hazard.

White Horse - Wayland Smithy4.40AcceptableO.K. but would not have rushed back for another one.

Popped in whilst waiting for the train. Disappointed in the range of beers but I guess it's only a Wednesday.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Wadworth - Yeastie Boys Golden Perch4.40AcceptableSlightly herbal with some tropical fruit. Think it was towards the end of the barrel.

Nelson - Friggin in the Riggin4.70GoodStrength reduced. 4.5%. Still one of Nelsons best.

A late lunch taken here. Iím not pointing any fingers, but I then experienced 48 hours of upset stomach. No doubt just a coincidence.

Everards (see entries against Joule's & Robinsons from now on) - Terrapin Rye5.50ExcellentA very nice beer. Rye tastes not overpowering. Amber-coloured. Lingering bitterness.

Sunday lunchtime and reasonably busy. I like the front half of the pub and even the food serving area at the back with a bit of an open kitchen.
