Late Sunday afternoon visit at a time when this lovely old pub is quiet. I forgot to claim a CAMRA discount.

Picking up where I was so rudely interrupted by the necessity to run for a train in April 2013. A relaxed lunchtime pint and an opportunity to explore this fine old pub.

An unacceptably brief visit, as I bought a pint, checked the time, bolted my pint and ran for my train. Savouring the pint was not worth the cost of a penalty-rate rail ticket back to London.
