Friday lunchtime. Website says two local ales always available which was the main reason for visiting. It must have been written by Noah as I was told they hadn't had a local ale for some months.

Timothy Taylor - Landlord4.30AcceptableA pretty poor offering considering what a pint in tip top condition tastes like.
Adnams - Broadside4.70Not Tried
Greene King - IPA3.60Not Tried
Sharp's - Doom Bar4.00Not TriedMy wife had a pint of this and it was so average she went on to the Landlord. Is this becoming the new "Boddingtons" of real ale?
