Met a friend here early evening for a pub crawl of Ashford's finest.. Busy but late enough to have missed the pushchair brigade!

Met a few friends here late afternoon, we opted to sit in the quieter more adult friendly front of the pub as the back half had been turned into a creche.

Adnams - Lighthouse3.40Excellent
Saltaire - New World Red5.20GoodThis malty offering had just come on.
Sambrook's - Junction4.50AcceptableRisked a pint of this surprisingly had flavour but became ever cloying towards the end.

Met a couple of friends here for a mid afternoon to early evening session, sadly just the one non national bland beer on offer we left once we'd finished the barrel off between us.

Mid Sunday afternoon busy with family groups in the front bar with others occupying the rear. Friendly efficient service with each pint served with no room to spare. I didn't bother including the usual offerings here.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Lancaster - Red4.80GoodNot a fan of chewy 'red' beers but this was very good, smoky yet smooth and dry with hints of chestnuts.
Woodforde's - Wherry3.80GoodNot as watery as expected with the recognisable flavours coming through.
