Tuesday afternoon from 3pm for about an hour or so. Reasonably busy and we were shown to a table towards the rear of what would have been the public bar. The handpumps were in the other bar so I did not make a note of all the beers on but I think there is a fairly standard range here.

Fairly busy with local trade, one chap seemed to think the world had come to an end when he was asked to pay with cash because of a problem with their card reader. We sat in a corner and listened to the chaps standing around at the bar talking absolute nonsense.

Early evening - a few drinkers in the bar, couple of diners. Sat in the window and watched the village. Rather unimaginative ale line-up.

Lunchtime and popular with diners. Far too many tables with cutlery on them for a drinker to feel comfortable.

19:30 visit. Popped down here to see a mate who lives in this very pleasant and well populated village. And cant believe it's over two years since I had a drink here too. Nothing really changes down this way though...
