A busy Sunday afternoon with a good wet trade. As with other pubs in this area plastic tubs were being used for those who wished to drink outside with the seagulls and glass glasses for those of us who drank inside.

The Stade seems to have become quite a good are for pubs these days. If only the Oddfellows Arms was still in business this area would make a good pub crawl.
Brains - British Summer4.10GoodPerfectly acceptable, and only £2.50 per pint.

Early Wednesday afternoon, and gloriously sunny. Most of the customers were sitting outside enjoying the June sunshine which has been something of a rarity this year.
