Over for a cycle group meeting. Festive feel and a very welcoming wood burning stove. I like this place for food and ambience - just would like one of the landlord’s to take a bit more interest in the beer. They were both behind the bar when I took my very short pint back for a top-up and got a sarcastic response and a reluctant top-up.

Adnams - Ghost Ship4.50AcceptableGeneral view was that this wasn’t at its best.
Fuller's (part of Asahi Europe) - London Pride4.10PoorThe beer was in good condition- however I am marking this poor due to the three-pint round being the best part of half-a-pint short and the sarcastic response to a request for a top-up.

1 pm lunchtime. Busy with diners - we had lunch. Rather slow service, but COVID precautions well in place. Down to one ale only.

Mid afternoon- my first post-lockdown pint. Busy but very well behaved customers, most in the very pleasant garden.

Here for Sunday lunch. Shame that two out of three pumps were not in use but good food and a jolly, relaxed atmosphere.
