Tuesday lunchtime, we were the only customers at first but a few others drifted in later. We had a very good chat with the owner and stayed for longer than originally planned.

Adnams - Mosaic Pale Ale4.10Excellent
Angels & Demons (also uses McCanns branding) - Panama Jazz4.80ExcellentThe landlord told us that the cask label said Angels and Demons whilst the pump clip said McCanns, as this was on gravity dispense he used the name on the cask label. An excellent brew however.

Evening until 9.30pm close. This cheered up my usual antipathy towards bank holidays. The couple running this Micropub have well researched the concept and made this a classic and welcoming Micropub haunt.

New micro. 3 ales on all low gravity and £3 a pint. Very pleasant environment on a sunny Sunday afternoon. Decent toilet and plenty of seats available. Beers from Gadds and Black Prince.
