12:00 Lots of tables reserved, we were lucky to get one. Pub was wedged before we left. I witnessed a dreadful solecism. Chap ordered a pint of Tally Ho with a lemonade top!

12:15 Went in search of promised Tally-Ho. Not on the pumps. Questions asked. Pint from the cellar. Liver and onions for lunch. Second pint. Bliss.

12:00 Poor weather stopped planned activity so came here for lunch. Steady trade, not bad for a Monday. Chat with Landlady revealed that Adnams Tally-Ho should be on sale from the the 18th of December.

12:30 A day of being thwarted. Rain stopped planned outside work and Waitrose's self scan system had shut down, so we came here to wait for it to be rebooted. The pub was busy, especially so with the upper room being used for a christening party.

Cottage - Blindside4.20AcceptableBest of a poor choice today. Too malty for my tastes.

19:00 Came here to eat as our Aga has decided it needs servicing and has shut down. The pub was steadily busy, encouraging to see on a Monday evening.
