Late evening visit, a somewhat patrician (or perhaps I mean genteel) air as people enjoyed bank holiday weekend drinks.

Evening visit. Immediate apologies from behind the bar for the Harvey's Best being off, as coming up cloudy. CAMRA discount was not proferred.

Evening. First visit here ever. Started to fill a tad as the stroke of 10 rang out.

Rammed with diners for Mothers Day, with the number of drinkers also swollen due to the fine weather. Staff seemed to be coping admirably well. Service was prompt and very friendly. Managed to snatch a table in the pretty garden with the sun just peeking out above the rooftops. Due to time constraints on the parking (Greenwich Council don't like you to stay anywhere for longer than 2 hours) we didn't eat but the food looked temptingly good.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Batemans - XB3.70ExcellentReally good pint of XB, reddish hues, sweet caramalts and a rounded hop reprise. Textbook condition.
