This seemed a nice pub, but overhearing the conversation at the bar was painful. All about prison sentences, violent boyfriends and drug dependency.

Our group stopped here en-route to the Lanes, early lunchtime. Oh dear - just the one ale on - and we returned all 5 pints. The bar person was a bit miffed but as none of us could face more than a sip we got our money back and left.
G2 - Plough 4.40UndrinkableFlat and sour.

Early lunchtime - first stop on a mini tour of Dover. 7 of us made 8 customers in all. Nice feel to the place. Two bar areas and an elevated area to the rear with dining tables. All decked out nicely for Xmas. Q
West Berkshire - Good Old Boy4.00GoodNice smooth best bitter.
G2 - Plough 4.40AcceptableLacking body for a medium strength beer - quite a nice duty aftertaste.
