Late-afternoon and pub almost empty. I noticed that although the pub displays a Cask Marque plaque outside, the certificate is six years out of date.
Harvey's - Sussex Best Bitter4.00AcceptableNot the best pint of Harvey’s I’ve ever drunk, but neither is it bad.

Early afternoon, we stopped for a late lunch. The town was almost deserted but this pub had had a very busy lunchtime. A good friendly local pub.
Harvey's - Sussex Best Bitter4.00ExceptionalExcellent Harveys, sometimes I think it is best to sell just one beer, and keep it well.
