We caused a stir amongst the locals having their lunch as we all piled off an RT bus and took over the pub for half or so hour!

Early afternoon and there were a lot people eating. I was impressed with the range of beers on offer and hope to make a return visit here before to long.

Castle Rock - Harvest Pale3.80ExcellentI thought I would have a pint here so that I could compare it with the same beer in the Brewery Tap the following day. This was very good indeed.

A large crowd of us arrived whilst luncheon dining was still in full swing. But the staff warmed to us a tad and all were served with courtesy and even a little chat about the beers as the queue subsided.

1648 - Signature4.40ExcellentI was very impressed by this beer for its dryness for such a very pale liquid

Great pub, lovely atmosphere, came late afternoon, and sat outside looking over the wonderful scenery, great views. Great staff, lovely old interior to the pub, good food by the looks of it as well. By this time i was on soft drinks, but they did have an extensive list of ales, sadly i remember only one! but they did have two ciders and a perry on as well

We arrived at 12.30 and found the place very busy with both walkers and locals. The staff were extremely efficient and the beer range was good. I'd love to come here one evening and spend a few hours drinking and soaking up the atmoshpere of the historic interior.
BeerABVScoreNotes
1648 - Signature4.40GoodPale gold colour with a periferal head. Dry sharp hops dominate with an earthy bite. Hint of lemon peel. My favourite of the 1648 range I think.
