Early evening friendly welcome, busy standing room only, leftover buffet food dotted about indicates a function of some kind had recently finished. My last visit here also included the long since closed Princess Royal in nearby Abbey Street, to which a local I chatted to knew well and agreed is sadly missed..

Late evening visit to gem of a little street corner boozer hidden amid chimney pots. Just as I arrived the barman was ripping off a velcro attached pumpclip having taken a duff new cask off sale.

My first visit here for possibly as much as ten years. I’d forgotten what a cute little pub it is. Some rather domineering locals present in the early evening.

Downton - Slovenian Dream4.50GoodA hazy gold colour. Hoppy.

Very busy on a Thursday evening as the Thursday evening mild drinkers club was visiting.
Moorhouse's - Black Cat Mild3.40ExcellentOn form here with lots of malt, fruit and liqorice flavours. My score 16/20
Dunham Massey - Chocolate Cherry Mild3.80ExcellentCherry flavour dominates, but still allows the chocolate malt flavours to come through to the finish. My score 16/20.
Rudgate - Ruby Mild4.40AcceptableDespite it winning champion Beer of Britain, I am not keen on this beer as it is too bitter for a mild. There was a rather harsh earthy taste in this sample. My score 14/20.
