Evening. Oh no the Lalor dynasty is over and the pub has had a heavy security door with metal shuttering surround fitted. At the Alexandra I was told David Lalor has shut up shop 3 weeks ago and retired to live in coastal Lincolnshire. One wonders what the future holds here.

Two visits in one day, first at lunchtime when the landlord was busy adorning the place with Christmas decorations, and then early evening for a quick pint before catching a train home. A great pub in which to enjoy a pint in good company,
