The Thirsty Scarecrow (Freehouse)

Just the one ale on - but plenty of ciders of course - a few hardy souls in.

Late on in the evening. Having found The Mash Tun closed earlier was coincidental to find a drayman delivering here as a favour for The Mash Tun and he was off even at this time of night to deliver to the Red Lion at Snargate.
|Oakham - Inferno||4.00||Top notch|

Early evening - glad to get here at last - few in but very friendly. Big do planned for the evening with "Dark side of the Moo" ready for the occasion. Like it - and the oversize glasses to ensure a full pint.
|Elland - Beyond the Pale||4.20||Fresh and vibrant. Shame it is not Summer. |
|Old Dairy - Dark Side of the Moo||7.00||Liquorice, smoky - a big beer in all respects. |

Mid evening visit. Loud carol singing started as I went to the toilet and upon my return a party of female songster Kings of the Orient had entered, how spooky to see those pencilled on beards so I scurried off.
|Ramsgate Brewery (Gadds') - Seasider||4.30|

Evening visit. Overly warm and cosy on a balmy night, exacerbated by a brisk walk with a heavy bag. The enigma of The Breakwater Brewery Taproom being closed all day today was answered here.
|Oakham - Citra||4.20||In lovely nick|

Evening visit and a good sociable crowd in.

A very enthusiastic and welcoming landlord. Needless to say that as this is a predominantly a cider house that was the most popular drink in here, with Vimto Cider making an appearance. I sat at the round table at the back and the 1960s chairs reminded me of the famous Christine Keeler photograph.
|Portobello - Westway Pale Ale||4.00||A nothing beer.|

Evening. A most enthusiastic licensee with a vast range of Kentish and elsewhere ciders and perries.
|Portobello - Westway Pale Ale||4.00||Hazy and a bit sharp|
