Afternoon visit with a group of former work colleagues. We found the place a bit too warm for our liking and chose to sit as far away from the fire as possible.

Harvey's - IPA3.50ExcellentIn good condition.
Hopdaemon - Red4.20ExcellentOne of the best pints of this I have had for some time.
Phoenix - Brunning & Price Original Bitter 3.80Not TriedI ordered one of these but it ran out. It was replaced later with a new cask after the lines had been flushed through.

Mid afternoon and our group came in here for a late lunch, a few others in here had decided to do the same. I was disappointed with my meagre steak sandwich which would have been £6.25 had it not been for ChrisE's 25% shareholder discount.

Late afternoon, after 4, still very busy with diners but a nice atmosphere in the bar area and not too crowded. Beers a little samey. The rhubarb cider got a thumbs-up from my daughter.

5 ish - I have cut down brambles and other stuff to keep the cycle route clear - time for a pint. A good few customers sprinkled around the bars and the sunny garden.

Hopdaemon - Incubus4.00Good
Ripple Steam - Original Best Bitter4.10AcceptableSo called "happy hour" with 50p off a pint. Just the £3.50 then. Clear with a good head but tasted past its best.

Evening - here for a big family "do". Still an impressive range of ales - still rather pricey.

Mid Sat evening - empty in the bar, a few eaters in. The prices here continue to amaze me £9.40 for a pint and a 175ml glass of Shiraz - we moved on to the Fordwich Arms next and saved a whopping £2.40 on the same drinks.

Just made it in time for 60p off a pint (before 1900) - but at their normal prices they are not exactly cutting their throats. Quite busy, good atmosphere.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Old Dairy - Cattle Shed4.50ExcellentFull flavoured APA with plenty of flowery hoppiness. I was surprised when I asked for a second that it had finished - good to the end then as well.
Phoenix - Brunning & Price Original Bitter 3.80AcceptableA bit cloying after the APA.
