09:40 Breakfast stop before a pub crawl. Quiet when I entered. Filling up with mothers and young children before I left. Not my favourite pub experience. Impressive selection of beers compared to my previous visits.

An unusual Wetherspoon's. Former pub so décor and layout is atypical. The main drinking area is a one time courtyard and has a selection of wall surfaces including flint, plaster, wood, tile and upholstered.
