Last knockings visit with entry initially refused by bouncers who had to be corrected by pub staff when called who said the pub was fully open for serving until the published closing time. Most confrontational.

Evening visit. Always a boring array of ales - the venue does not make imaginative use of the JDW quarterly guest list.
