I came here slightly by accident, having sailed on two bus stops past my intended destination. The pub is much bigger than I ever imagined, and fairly quiet in the early evening. CAMRA discount claimed.

Pleasant refuge from the heat on the warmest day of the year so far.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Grain - Bramble4.50GoodFruity and quite sweet amber bitter with a berry fruit flavour, from Bramling Cross hops perhaps. My score 15/20.
