Late-evening visit and this huge pub is very busy indeed. We squeeze on to the end of a table for a quick nightcap.
Great Orme - Atlantis5.00GoodPale and hoppy. After a few days in Wales the taste of hops comes almost as a shock. What are those tasty, bitter things in my beer?

Bank Holiday Monday afternoon. We enjoyed good service and some excellent beers. Plenty of people eating what appeared to be very good food. The staff took time to talk to us about beers, and this is certainly a pub that I would like to return to. In addition to the beers listed there was Brunning and Price Original which I think is brewed by Phoenix.
Great Orme - Orme Best4.20ExceptionalThis beer is now 4.2% ABV but I believe it used to be 3.8%. Brown in colour and delicious.
Brass Monkey - Chimp off the Old Block3.60ExcellentLight session beer.
