Made two visits, first soon after opening when I was the only customer, then 2-3 hours later when the pub had filled up quite a bit.
Batemans - Miss Canada4.10GoodWinter Olympic special, pleasant golden malty brew with a bitter, dryish finish. My score 15/20.
Castle Rock - Hairstreak3.60GoodVery pale lager syle ale, sweetish with good malt character and also some citrus hop in the finish. My score 16/20.
Elgood's - Copper Feelgood3.70AcceptableAs it says, copper coloured bitter, quite bitter with a dryish finish. My score 14/20.
