Late afternoon visit and very quiet here. A rather religious silence prevailed. With reduction of Old Rosie cider's abv from 7.3% to 6.8% the pumpclip here needs changing as does the wall blackboard ad.

Saturday afternoon and fairly quiet with indifferent service. We appeared to be the only ones drinking cask ales, I was disappointed to find no amber or dark ales on sale.

14:50 Just three others in. Friendly welcome from the barman and the regulars. The bank of snob screens in the former corridor drinking area is a nice survivor. CAMRA's Pub Heritage website only lists nine pubs with them in the country.

Pig Iron - A.P.A.4.50GoodDescribed as an American Pale Ale. Far too malty and not enough hops to warrant the description.

Twenty-five years since my last visit to this pub. Jam packed immediately after a match at Molineux. We ignored the ‘No Away Fans’ signs and squeezed in, to a warm welcome. But a bit too crowded for comfort.

2000 hours visit. Perhaps half a dozen drinkers in all. I always find the beer range here disappointing coming from national brands. Friendly welcome upon arrival and a friendly goodbye on departure.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Adnams - Southwold Bitter3.70AcceptableServed with a tight sparkler which ripped the guts out of this beer. All the bitterness migrated to the head and part way down the glass all that was left was a metallic flavour. Adnams is not a beer to be served this way on any account
