Very busy tonight as Old Dairy brewery were sponsoring free Red Top from 17:30 to 18:30 (and later free Gold Top across the road in the White Lion)to celebrate the opening of their new brewery in the town.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Old Dairy - Red Top3.80ExcellentVery good indeed, perhaps not as sweet as it used to be, and more to my liking.

This pub has recently re-opened under new management after a period of closure so I decided to give it a try. Just time for a very quick pint whilst changing buses.
