Fairly quiet and relaxing. The heavy external doors are kept closed during the winter months which can make the pub look closed.

Late afternoon fairly quiet. Lighting dimmed to a pleasant level compared to the usual surgical enviroment.

Old Dairy - Red Top3.80AcceptableServed brain freezingly cold gave this an iced tea flavour not normally associated with this beer.

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.
