What a remarkable old pub. I was not even sure that it was open and tried a couple of doors before finding the right one. A time-warp room (the middle one of three, the other two being closed), where the only sound was the competing ticking of two venerable old clocks. A couple of other customers briefly, with the landlady emerging from private rooms when needed.
Harvey's - Sussex Best Bitter4.00ExcellentYou know how very occasionally you have a pint of Harvey’s that tastes like the very best pint of traditional bitter ever brewed? That happened to me here.
