My first visit here and liked the atmosphere, we decided to occupy a table at the bar level vice the more opulent surroundings by the main entrance.

Evening. Despite single manning the bar the barman juggled restaurant, cocktails and bar orders very well.

Evening. Hoping to find some local ales here but overall a bad experience. Just one friendly barman serving and trying to cope with restaurant drinks orders and bar customers leading to long 7 minute wait to get served and several others even longer. Someone should have come to help him.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Harvey's - Sussex Best Bitter4.00GoodA respite from the poorer ales
Old Dairy - Blue Top4.80AcceptableJust about acceptable. Very tired pint
Pig & Porter - Strangely Brown4.40UndrinkableStrangely sour I'd say. Swapped out without question

The beer line up looked good peering through the window. We sat in the garden. Pleasant if a little impersonal.

Long Man - Copper Hop4.20GoodCopper coloured. Strong earthy hop.
Old Dairy - Sun Top3.60AcceptableA touch flat but nice tangerine.
