Busy early evening, following a campaign to save a nearby pub from decimation and development by a money grabbing developer

Lunchtime - I was double booked on drinking sessions today - bus pass group were supposed to be here on a “5th Thursday”. I cycled 20 miles in wintry conditions - they couldn’t be bothered to walk the half mile and went to the ‘spoons instead! Swift one then back on the bike. A few in, good sounds on the jukebox.

Excellent local pub, outside the City Walls but easy walking distance of the centre and the trains and bus stations. Buzzing with a wide selection of drinkers including a birthday party and a music group. Always a warm and enthusiastic welcome from the landlady. 7 cask ales, regularly changing throughout the week, 3 lagers and 7 ciders as well as a wide range of whiskys and gins.

Early afternoon, a new treat for a few of our group. They liked it. Sixth ale on from Wild Weather, Calleva 4.0 (too hard to add this - it takes an age to get to the “W” breweries).

Early Friday evening- very busy but thinning out as the after-workers disperse. 6 ales on, 5 listed plus Trade Winds - but I didn’t note which brewer.
