Very busy indeed, although we are still in November we had to put up with Christmas songs being played over the station's loudspeaker system but fortunately we could avoid that by staying inside the pub. I spoke to a couple of chaps who work in some nearby offices and they said they were having to put up with an endless tape of Christmas music that repeated itself every hour and even with their office windows firmly closed they could not escape it. The bar has changed somewhat since my last visit with the counter now situated where I seem to remember the entrance. A good selection of beers on as usual, I have not attempted to list them all.
