Friday evening with a very loud rock band playing. I had to order by pointing to the pump clip and using sign language as I could not make myself heard above the band. One pint and away.

This pub is much improved under its new management. The landlady told me off for not immediately noticing that she had five brand new handpumps installed today, Three with swan necks and two with short spouts although she would have preferred them all to have short spouts. Three beers coming soon are Tonbridge Ebony Moon, Wickwar Bob and Hop Back GFB.

Lunchtime visit. I had a quick look at the menu and it appears to be good value for money, one to try at some time in the future. Camra magazines were being taken from the leaflet container at an alarming rate.
Purity - Pure UBU4.50Excellent
Truman's - Lazarus4.20Good

Plan B had to be put in to operation as the bus to Shadoxhurst failed to appear. Deserted when I entered but a barman appeared from the cellar and apologised for keeping me waiting. The landlady arrived soon afterwards and informed that she has Taylors Golden Best, Boltmaker and Landlord in the cellar and some John Smiths Cask which I have been told to try when it is on.
