Met up with Michael Moore. Not many in and no real atmosphere but a pleasant enough pub.

Took a walk after the spoons, this was the nearest pub, open floor space with a few tables, looked like a pub where serious drinking took place.

A busy Thursday evening, good service, and a good mix of customers. This is part of a very convenient crawl with tree excellent pubs almost next door to each other, and all offering different beers.
