Last pub of the tour. About 10:30pm I think. Got a table at the back from someone who was just leaving who welcomed us to their old table. Yeah I don't get it either.

Busy and getting on for the early evening. We sat outside and then got told we had to move on in 5 mins as children weren't allowed after 8 (which I suppose is reasonable really).

Walked up to the bar and peered at the line-up. The guy sitting at the bar said the Hip Hop was excellent. So I had that. He turned out to be the deputy manager and I stood chatting to him for 15 mins talking about beer, pubs and his recurring nightmare where he can't leave the pub because a bunch of drunks won't go. Top bloke.
