22:45 Bed and breakfast stop. Not bad at all. Having just left the Flower Pot I looked at the beer range and didn't bother.

16:00 visit. This Vintage Inns Pub/Restaurant and hotel was fairly busy with mainly diners and, what I noted, complaints about poor food and slow service at that! Second best beer garden in town though, only ruined by the incessant traffic noise, and today this was mixed with some loud live music drifting over from the footy stadium. Nice visit.

19:00 visit. Busy with diners and drinkers alike. For the first ever time, I sat in the large garden here, and it was really nice. Must be the best beer garden in Town. A real delight at this time of year.

1700 visit. A post-match look-in as this place is very near the new Gallagher Stadium. Quite busy with diners and drinkers alike. Ale range can be inconsistent here, but three half decent ales on today.

Purity - Mad Goose4.20ExcellentIn lovely condition, that distinct, light, caramel taste that comes from Purity Ales. Nice to see and sample this one.
