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.

Evening. Probably the pub with the most modern feel in Carshalton tending towards being a beer boutique.
