I arrived just as the beer lines were being flushed through ready for a new ask of Hophead so I decided to wait for that. Prices in here seem to have risen to £2.10 per pint.

Dark Star - Hophead (some has also been brewed by Fuller's)3.80GoodQuite bitter. I have heard that Asahi have transferred all production of Hophead back to Partridge Green, that information came to me from Sussex branches of Camra.

Didnít plan to go here as I was disappointed last time, but we were passing anyway so had a couple of swift halves - only charged 1.99 for the two. Nice staff - shame about the beer, didnít finish them.
