Early Saturday evening, a group of three of us came here after a day at the South East Heritage Transport Show. We enjoyed a couple of large pizzas between us.

Fairly quiet and relaxing. The heavy external doors are kept closed during the winter months which can make the pub look closed.

Late afternoon fairly quiet. Lighting dimmed to a pleasant level compared to the usual surgical enviroment.
