A quick stop for a pint to break a car journey; my first time in here for quite a few years. Around 10 cask beers on, pretty much all of the 'Christmas Ale' type.

12:00 The six of us were the first in as it opened. The pub soon got busy. Made very welcome. An obvious winner of a pub of the year award. My gripes, the lack of beers under 4% and the intrusive television.
