I arrived just before 19:00 and found Jason of this site standing outside the pub puffing away on some smelly vape liquid. We went inside and enjoyed the bottle conditioned ale and the complimentary home-made crisps.

Early evening we were the first customers at the bar, a few others arrived after and soon it was standing room only. Great atmosphere and worth a visit even just for a drink. I look forward to returning here and trying the food.

Lunchtime visit and busy in the restaurant but quiet in the bar. We enjoyed the complimentary home-made crisps that came with our beers.

Friday evening and a good atmosphere in the bar. I had not been here before and decided to see what they had to offer. There was just one keg font on the bar dispensing a Spanish lager and some wines and spirits on shelves at the rear. I asked the lady about beers and she produced some bottles of Spanish artesanal beers.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Vic Ales - Mumbai Indian Pale Ale6.20ExcellentBottle conditioned ale. Amber coloured, only poured slightly hazy when the second half of the bottle went in to my glass (I did not realise it was bottle conditioned at the time) A good ale with a pleasant lingering aftertaste.
