Afternoon visit and not too busy.
Wantsum - Imperium4.00GoodA short measure but at £1.49 I decided not to argue. A nice pint of Imperium.

Met a couple of friends here for a mid afternoon to early evening session, sadly just the one non national bland beer on offer we left once we'd finished the barrel off between us.
Woodforde's - Wherry3.80ExcellentPerfect right up to the final scrapings.

Lancaster - Red4.80Good
Woodforde's - Wherry3.80Not Tried

Mid Sunday afternoon busy with family groups in the front bar with others occupying the rear. Friendly efficient service with each pint served with no room to spare. I didn't bother including the usual offerings here.
Woodforde's - Wherry3.80GoodNot as watery as expected with the recognisable flavours coming through.
Lancaster - Red4.80GoodNot a fan of chewy 'red' beers but this was very good, smoky yet smooth and dry with hints of chestnuts.

Burton Bridge - Stairway To Heaven5.00Excellent
Old Dairy (being contract brewed after it closed) - Blue Top4.80Good

Marston's - Old Empire IPA5.70Good
15 Nov 2021 (Magnus Greel)
As expected fairly quiet for a late Monday afternoon to early evening session and enjoy a few pints and a pizza, one is spoilt for choice thanks to Ashford's many superb real ale town centre boozers.
Marston's - Old Empire IPA5.70Excellent
Exe Valley - Autumn Glory4.50ExcellentRich ruby colour with a figgy toasted malt aroma and bran muffin cinder toffee flavours.
Oakham - JHB3.80AcceptableRather tired and lacking condition, the cask was taken off once we'd voiced our displeasure.
Greene King - Abbot5.00Not Tried
Sharp's - Doom Bar4.00Not TriedWest country ales well represented tonight...
Greene King - Ruddles Best3.70Not Tried
21 Oct 2021 (ChrisE)
Very busy but we got a table and service was good.
Black Sheep - Monty Python's Dead Parrot4.10Excellent
Shepherd Neame - Hop to the Future4.50ExcellentI was put off by the description of tropical and citrus fruit notes but I am glad that I tried it as it is not to citrusy at all.
Hook Norton - Off the Hook4.30Not Tried
17 Oct 2021 (ChrisE)
Busy with a mix of diners and drinkers.
Wantsum - Imperium4.00GoodA short measure but as I was only paying £1.49 with a voucher I decided not to complain.
