Evening visit around 19:00 hours, the bar was empty and no cask beers were on so I left and got myself a reservation on the 19:10 to Kings Cross.

Thirty minute train connection, so I pop in here for a quick pint and to use the facilities. I appear to be the only customer. I didn’t note the cost of my pint (in view of the previous entry here) but I’m pretty sure I got change from £4.

19:30 Train running late so I thought I'd come in here for a swift half and use a working gents, the station ones being partly out of order. I ordered a half and was asked for £2.50. I said "What. That's £5 a pint." The bar man checked and confirmed the price. I replied "I am not paying that" and walked out.

The pub is found in Peterborough, Cambridgeshire, PE1 1QL.

Smartish hotel bar directly opposite the railway station. Originally a railway hotel it was sold by British Rail in 1982 as part of the privatisation process. The front bar is now called the "Sleeper's". Strong relationship with Grainstore Brewery so expect to see its beers on offer.

We have visited this pub 9 times, seen 10 different beers and tried 5 of them.
