Lunchtime on a hot day and both the garden and the pub itself are filling up with locals (South Benfleet is not much on the tourist trail). There was also a beer called 'Midnight Sun' with no brewery details on the clip.

A welcome refreshment point at the end of a long, hot Essex ramble.
BeerABVScoreNotes
