Busy typical ubiquitous clone Wetherspoons atmosphere but it served its purpose for a mid afternoon beer n burger refuel. I've only listed what I drank.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Hogs Back - Tongham TEA (previously T.E.A.)4.20GoodI couldn't be bothered to check out what else was on offer so opted for this.

Possibly my first ever visit to this pub. I arrived at a tense moment with a group of customers shouting at a member of staff who had refused to serve one of their number. The barmaid was so distracted that she pulled me the wrong pint, and there was a tension in the air throughout my visit.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Banks's - Arcadia Autumn Wheat6.00GoodPale gold and cloudy. Smooth and wheaty, with citrusy hops and a bit of spice.

Acorn - Global IPA5.00GoodA well balanced amber strong bitter with good bitter hop character and a solid malt base. My score 15/20.

BeerABVScoreNotes
Shepherd Neame - Bishops Finger5.00AcceptableA sort of metallic bitterness to this which wasn't particularly pleasant. Not much else going for it. My score 13/20.

BeerABVScoreNotes
Saltaire - Cascadian Black4.80ExcellentDark ruby/brown in colour with an excellent mix of dark malt and fruity hop flavours. Smooth mouthfeel and a lingering malty finish. My score 17/20.

Busy with student and office worker groups around 6pm.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Saltaire - Trio Pale4.40GoodPale gold with plenty of hop flavours and a little malt for balance. Dry, hoppy finish. My score 15/20.
25 Nov 2010 (Martin the Mildman)
Fairly busy at 5.30 on a Thursday evening but able to find a table. Still some festival beer available here.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Marston's - Lion Stout5.00GoodSecond sample of this and still not convinced, lacking body with a rather thin mouthfeel. Some roast malt but little depth of flavour. My score 15/20.
