18:40 Busy, mainly drinkers. Better beer choice than my last visit. Well informed barman. A few examples of people wearing ripped jeans. A fashion trend I really do not understand.

13:30 Lunch stop. Busy. Ten hand pumps on the bar. One bank of the usual suspects, the other five guest beers. We went to the five guests and then progressively ordered each one only to be told it had gone. Each pumpclip was removed as the bar girl failed to pull a pint. Only one was on. Very poor show.
