16:20 Open Garden Tour refreshment break. Thought it might be just drinkers but still people dining. Landlord was rather brusque.

13:00 Pub was full with diners. Only one other drinker, took ages to get served as one person behind bar busy taking complicated food orders. When I did get a beer it was freezing. This is the current rural pub of the year for the local CAMRA branch. I have no idea why.
