13:45 Third stop of the day and as it turned out best beer choice. The nine of us had one bar to ourselves. A few in the other. A trip to the Gents revealed the pub to be a warren of rooms on a number of levels.

A quick lunchtime pint. Quiet in the lower bar, although there were plenty of people out in the courtyard.
