Rather quiet in here on a rainy Sunday lunchtime.

Cambridge Brewing Company - Night Porter4.40GoodA dry, chocolaty Porter in good condition.
Cambridge Brewing Company - Misty River4.20AcceptableThe tasting notes say this is a naturally hazy, hoppy beer. My half pint is crystal clear and malty with few, if any, discernible hop flavours.

Uncomfortably full on a Saturday early evening to the point that all but one of my companions decided to walk on and find somewhere more manageable.

A worthy new venture in the City Centre and part of the now depleted ‘King Street Run’. Busy in the early afternoon. 10% CAMRA discount claimed.
