The exterior was covered in scaffolding and the pub appeared to be closed, but a notice on the door said "Business as Usual" so I entered. The pub was packed with people watching football on the pub's television, but I managed to find some space in the room at the back. It was not possible to see all the cask beers on offer because of cider drinkers standing in front of the pump clips.

Busy with a visit from the Thursday evening mild drinkers, but otherwise would have been fairly quiet.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Mighty Oak - Oscar Wilde Mild3.70ExcellentSweetish, low hopped and malty as a mild should be. My score 16/20.
Titanic - Green Hop4.50AcceptableQuite bitter and hoppy golden ale with a fresh, dry hop taste and finish. My score 14/20.
Tring - Mansion Dark3.70Not Tried
