Very busy at lunchtime and a bit awkward to find anywhere to stand that was not in the way.
Alfred's - Saxon Bronze3.80GoodPleasant, pale golden, assertive Pale Ale. This does not meet the published descriptions of this beer and I wonder if they had their pumpclips muddled?

A nice comfortable place to relax and enjoy a decent pint of ale. Very much a food operation but drinkers are welcome, and there was a good range of ales on offer.
