13:15 Mid-Norfolk Railway promised a beer festival to accompany the East Coast Steam Gala. Failed. Came here for lunch instead. Shame to see both guest ales from Greene King.

Adnams - Southwold Bitter3.70AcceptableBit sharp
Greene King - Brasilia!4.10AcceptableThe best of a boring choice of beer. Lacking the typical Greene King taste but too sweet.

13:30 A complete contrast to the Dragon. Welcoming, some diners, some drinkers. Good pubby feel rather than a restaurant with beer.

12:20 Couple of pints before taking my mate to the station for his journey back to York. Quiet when we went. Filling up when we left at 13:00.

14:10 Very quiet for a Sunday afternoon.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Adnams - Tally-Ho7.00GoodMy son and I had what we discovered to be the first two pints of the lunchtime session. The beer had aged distinctly since my pints on Boxing Day and was vinous and slightly sour. I had a second pint and it was identical in taste to my previous visit.

11:30 Having just watched the Dunston Harriers ride off from the market cross I came here looking for Tally-Ho. I was not disappointed.

12:05 Five in already. Second visit when both guest beers were from Greene King, although one was claiming to be from the Westgate Brewery. A great shame as this pub used to be a good bet for unusual guest beers.

19:00 Opening time. First in. Soon got busy. Normally has two interesting guest beers, disappointing to see both from the Greene King stable.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Adnams - Southwold Bitter3.70AcceptableToo young, tasted green.
Nethergate (was Nethergate Growler for a while then name reverted) - Feathers Tickler3.90AcceptableBit stale
Belhaven - St. Andrews Amber Ale4.90UndrinkableVinegar and cloudy. To be fair it was changed without question and the difference between it and my replacment beer was refunded.
