I arrived in the early evening as one band were packing away their gear and left as another band were setting up. Excellent beer selection here.

My first visit here and I was impressed. The pub has a bar billiards table and a shove halfpenny board. It expects to open its own on site brewery sometime in 2014.

Last of the 10 pubs on the red London RT beer bus trip. Fewer on board but still a pretty handful to invade but there is space here to take them. The pub was preparing for live music. An eclectic crowd of locals in residence.
