Evening. Apparently up for sale and one wonders if Tim's mugshot on the outside sign will survive such a sale.

Mostly a tourist crowd, mid-evening on a Wednesday. And they are primarily here to eat, not drink beer. It is very hot and I fear there may be some form of heating on, despite the warm weather.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Cotleigh - Uncle Sam Hop Burst4.30ExcellentGolden and US-hoppy. Better balance and more mellow than the Roosters beer I drank alongside (to my taste today anyway).
Rooster's - Union Gap4.30GoodPale golden colour. Dry and hoppy, with nice orange flavours. Would be better still with more body.

Busy with tourists and after work drinkers.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Shepherd Neame - Rudolph's Reward3.70AcceptableDark amber bitter with a sharp bitterness and a slightly metallic finish. My score 14/20.
Hydes - Racey Rudolph4.00AcceptableVery malty and biscuity giving a rather unbalanced flavour and a dry, astringent finish. My score 14/20.
01 Apr 2012 (Martin the Mildman)
Fairly quiet for breakfast on a Sunday morning.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Kelham Island - Wild Rider IPA5.50AcceptableStrong pale ale with a bitter hop character and little maltiness. Dry, bitter finish. My score 14/20.
10 Apr 2011 (Martin the Mildman)
First port of call for my final festival beers and one on here. Had breakfast as the pub was very quiet at 11am on a Sunday morning.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Highgate - Fox's Nob Premium5.00PoorUnfortunately the break from brewing doesn't appear to have improved the beer. Still that dry malty flavour and little hoppiness for balance. Still not to my taste. My score 11/20.
02 Apr 2011 (Martin the Mildman)
Very quiet before 11am on a Saturday morning with just a few taking breakfast.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Saltaire - Liquorice Stout5.00ExcellentA bittersweet stout with some liqourice flavour balanced with dark malt character. Not quite as distinctive as I had hoped. My score 16/20.
Lancaster - Kingmaker5.00ExcellentA very pleasant well rounded strong golden bitter. A good balance of sweetish malt and fruity hop gives a full bodied flavour. The finish is fairly dry. My score 16/20.
Orkney (Sinclair) - Corncrake Ale4.10GoodPale gold and fairly bitter with moderate hoppiness and some malt balance. My score 15/20.

The pub is found in Whitehall, Central London, SW1A 2DY.

Goodish Wetherspoon's with 12 hand pumps in 2 banks each of 6. Exterior is very nice and it is located next to the Whitehall Theatre. The rear overlooks St James's Park. Large plate glass windows allow you to enjoy the view of Whitehall whilst you have a pint. The hanging external pub sign shows an image of Tim Martin, Wetherspoon's chairman.

We have visited this pub 20 times, seen 71 different beers and tried 31 of them.
