Very busy, long wait to be served, dreadfully short measure only begrudgingly topped up, excessively loud music, dirty tables. I could go on. Perhaps I visited at a bad moment.

Portobello - Westway Pale Ale (superseded by 3.8% version)4.00AcceptableMalty and a bit sharp and somehow did not seem quite right.

With three different live international football matches on the multiple TVs, this pub was very busy at 9pm. In fact I nearly gave up waiting to be served.

Had planned to look at the magnificent bar back in the Rocket but the pub was wedged so came here and got a seat with ease. My first visit for many years. The marquetry panels surrounding the fireplace in the left hand side are noteworthy.

Big Penny (formerly Truman's) as of late 2022 contract brewed - Budburst4.20PoorHazy but I gave it the benefit of the doubt. Started well but it was a struggle to finish the pint.

Commuter time, busy.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Marston's - Revisionist Rye Pale Ale4.30GoodVery nice favour - but I was rather put off by the muddy appearance. That's a rye ale I guess.

There were a handful of blokes outside the front door having a beer before they got on a train (judging by their suitcases). The inside was a bit quieter with a handful of people enjoying a quiet pint.
