We had read that this pub was opening on 12 July for the Folk and Ale Festival which it did. We discovered on arrival that the pub is not in fact open yet, and is expected to open around the 20 July, the weekend opening on the 12th being a special event. We managed to gain entry and were given a complimentary pint to take away (something to do with the licence I think) so we gratefully accepted that and sat on a bench by the bus stops and drank our beer.

Wantsum - One Hop 4.50ExcellentVery good, and as the cask was on full tilt probably towards the end of the cask.
