Saturday afternoon visit. The internal layout of this pub has changed considerably since my last visit. I was told that I looked like a CAMRA member and offered 20p discount on my beers.

A bit of a shock here, could not get in the door! Walked around to the stern end to find a new entrance. Inside the little bar has gone and is replaced by a long bar on the other wall.

Although the Good Beer Guide gives the opening time as 12 noon on a Saturday, the pub’s own website says 11am, and so we found ourselves in quite a big queue outside when the doors opened on the stroke of 11. A friendly welcome and we also sampled some locally produced raspberry cider, which was nice. All other customers appeared to be either stags or hens.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Wapping - Smoked Porter5.00ExcellentBlack and creamy with a tan head. Quite dry, chocolate and roast barley. Smooth. Subtle smokiness.
Wapping - Lightship3.60GoodDecent pale gold, light bitter with grassy and bitter hops. A good place to start what was going to be a long day.
