Came here as brewery tap closed early, for a pint after work. A few in but three beers off (including bass, which I fancied) so that bored me
BeerABVScoreNotes
Marston's - Pedigree4.50AcceptableFar too cold, fisapponting, other than that nice petty smell and above average taste
Everards (see entries against Joule's & Robinsons from now on) - Tiger4.20Not TriedThese beers seem to be coming around quickly, hope the list isn't this limited
Wolf - Coyote Bitter4.30Not Tried

A bit packed and chaotic
BeerABVScoreNotes
Wolf - Coyote Bitter4.30PoorOh dear, cloudy and rank, but could not be bothered to change it due to the heaving bar and woefully inadequate bar staff on Boxing Day. Rather burst my bubble as enjoyed this last time

Busy Boxing Day lunch. Great varied menu with tempting specials and excellent service. Delighted at the beer selection on arrival after being promised just Pedi and Bass on the website!
