Another pub I've not been to in 10 years. Friendly but the beer was a disappointment. We sat in the small rear garden and Tony bemoaned the lack of hops in his "amber craft beer" - and also it's lack of amberness. We actually left the beers and walked on.

Narrow V-Shaped pub that was empty when we arrived (it had only just opened) but started to fill up quickly.

Wadworth - Malt and Hops4.40AcceptableMade from a green hop recipe it was pale copper coloured with a bitter leaf flavour and a sulphous nose. I'm not sure I could detect much malt though
