Nice pub this. Not many in but then it was a blustery wet day out. Bit of Blur on the stereo competing with some Michael Jackson coming out of the kitchen. Was offered a taster without asking too.

Cotswold Spring - OSM (Old Sodbury Mild)3.90ExcellentThis was badged a bit weirdly but I'm sure it's what it is. Anyway, nice chocolate bitter earthy beer that's very dark brown in colour. Very good.

early evening - cold drizzle outside - cozy inside - log burner on the go, a scattering of drinkers - good ambience

Jane and Isabel went to see a "Willy and Hugh" exhibition in the Library and at £4 an adult I passed. £3.20 on a pint seemed better value. Loverly pub. Lots of hops on the wall. Handfull of good natured locals in.

Eagle (formerly Wells & Young's, formerly Charles Wells, formerly Wells) - Young's London Original (was Bitter)3.70GoodReasonable condition. Tight sparkler. Lots of caramel and hop resin. Probably could have done without the sparkler

We sat at the back in the eating area as the pub was quite busy. Nice pub this. It once had a Fremlins board up at the back, but that was 20 years ago.

Very busy. We sat here; we sat there; we sat everywhere.

Eagle (formerly Wells & Young's, formerly Charles Wells, formerly Wells) - Young's London Original (was Bitter)3.70PoorCloudy, pale, full of diacetyl and with a hint of vinegar according to Ian. It tasted like Cornish Coaster to be honest. It was poor but some how I quite liked it.

Adnams - Southwold Bitter3.70AcceptableBeen a long time since I had this so not sure what it should taste like but it was a perfectly acceptable bitter

Not very busy really so we sat under the window on one of those 2 big tables. I like all the hops on the ceiling here. Ian told me all about previous romantic moments he's had near here.
