Well I see that Chris E gets in here a bit so it must be worth a visit. Just after 2 - a few drinkers enjoying themselves. Friendly chat with the barmaid. It appears to be a good honest boozer but another with limited ale choice.

Thursday evening and some very welcome rain was starting to cool things down after a very hot day. A good crowd in here tonight, I had a good chat with one of the regulars about the GBBF.

Sharp's - Atlantic4.20GoodFirst one from a new cask, in very good condition and I enjoyed the first few mouth fulls but then certain flavours that I just do not like came to the fore.

Late evening visit primarily to use the toilet after a long bus journey but they were still serving so I had a couple of pints and stayed until after midnight closing.

Absolutely heaving, probably about 100 people in here tonight, the only way that I could get to the toilets was to exit from the West side door, walk along the road and enter the pub from the East side. A good friendly atmosphere and a 1960s discotheque.
