Dave and I ended up in here at around 9pm, when the pub was unexpectedly fairly quiet. I did not quite note all of the beers that were available.
Moorhouse's - Winter Looms4.20AcceptableA bit too harshly malty for my taste.
Blue Monkey - Jungle Bells4.20AcceptableA collaboration beer with Trumanís. A rather ordinary, brown Bitter I thought.

Not as busy as expected on a Friday lunchtime.
Wood's - Santa's tAle4.00GoodTraditional malty bitter with biscuity malt and not much in the way of hop. Sweetish finish. My score 15/20.
