You know how some pubs these days print lists of cocktails and put some rather fanciful, optimistic prices beside them? Well here, tonight, was a group of people actually drinking the stuff and looking a bit worse for wear. I tried, but failed, to imagine a group of aging gangsters sitting in a quiet corner here, plotting the Hatton Garden diamond heist.
Sambrook's - Pumphouse Pale Ale4.20GoodGolden, and served with a big, creamy head. An easy-drinking Pale Ale in good condition.
Wells & Young's (Charles Wells now) - Young's Bitter3.70Not Tried

Easter Sunday mid afternoon - late lunchers with quiet, discrete football being shown.
Truman's - Runner4.00Acceptable Good condition but rather bland and a sweetness that was almost sickly.
Wells & Young's (Charles Wells now) - Wells Bombardier Glorious English4.10Not Tried
