Late afternoon and quiet just a handful in, no doubt down to the popularity of the nearby Hope. General consensus pub not worth of its GBG status, a couple of us left beers unfinished.

14:00 hours and packed with diners and what appeared to be a small child's birthday party. I amused myself watching somebody put about an ounce of salt on a gourmet meal.
Triple fff - Moondance4.20AcceptableCold and very slightly hazy but quite acceptable.
Loddon - Gravesend Shrimpers Bitter4.10Not Tried
Hanlons (formerly O'Hanlon's) - Yellow Hammer4.20Not Tried
Greene King - Sun Dance4.00Not TriedNo brewer's name on the pump clip, it just said "brewed in the heart of East Anglia".

Evening. Probably the pub with the most modern feel in Carshalton tending towards being a beer boutique.
Sharp's - Doom Bar Reserve 206.00ExcellentA Sharp's beer with a distinctive taste for once
Loddon - Gravesend Shrimpers Bitter4.10Not TriedWhy does the clip not show the Loddon provenance? Must put lots of people off
Bedlam - Golden Ale4.20Not Tried
