Last knockings visit until close. Serendipity as another Harp Charing Cross émigré who had been in The Capitol last night was here too. Who is stalking who?

Last knockings visit until close. All pumpclips on display but don't think even the staff really knew what was on and what was not. Chaos.

Last knockings visit until close, alas hugged by a most casual of acquaintances apparently pleased to have just had his first two lateral flow test negatives after being Covid Omicron infected on Boxing Day. Empty beer pumps (despite pump clips showing) due to unexpected New Year's Eve demand the barmaid said.

Last knockings visit until close. Irked barmaid tried to shut up shop early but to no avail - no reason I could see, has been much busier with minutes to go.

Last knockings visit until close. Bar staff had difficulty serving the queue before the bewitching hour struck. For some bizarre reason not available pump clips were turned back facing the customers at 2350 but were not still available.
