Unsuccessful late evening visit. Even before closing times all 4 handpumps lines were out of use for cleaning. An 'arfer Arthur Guinness knocked back quickly then on the road again. Noted the range is normally all Greene King real ales and real cider is no longer sold here.

Evening until 11pm close. Since the owning pub company joined the Greene King stable the range has lost any adventurous edge. Shan't revisit until that changes.

Evening. Poorly lit, I thought at first it was closed for the night but lively inside. Keen on real ales and especially a range of 4 ciders.
