Evening visit and busy. Very welcoming staff who gave me a sample of a canned Hop Stuff beer to try. I was informed that Black Iris Snake Eyes will come on once the Dark Star Partridge has gone.

I had almost given up on seeing cask in here again as it had not been available on a number of recent visits. A busy Friday evening and the cask was selling well.

A very hot Sunday afternoon, the air handling system in here was working perfectly and it was a pleasure to sit in here and talk to knowledgeable bar staff about beer.

Met Ian here. He was sitting at the bar reading letters I'd sent him 30 years ago before the internet existed.

Early evening and fairly quiet, our group's arrival easily doubled the amount of customers. Only one cask beer on offer compared to a sea of keg varieties which was disappointing.

Hop Stuff - Single Hop Ekuanot4.20GoodDespite only using one variety of hop this was full on with lingering intensity - I can still taste and smell it 12 hours later!
