Evening visit. Lots of coming soon clips showing. Clear end of bank holiday feel.

Fuller's (part of Asahi Europe) - London Pride4.10PoorReplacement pint was albeit cooler but quite unrecognisable as Pride. There were just no off flavours to justify returning it. If anything a little soapy
Fuller's (part of Asahi Europe) - London Pride4.10UndrinkableYou'd think Pride would be the fast mover here. However this is the first time for years a beer has been handed to me feeling warm to the touch. Swapped with good grace but....

Early afternoon fairly quiet with a few groups coming and going. Was clear to see the barmaid had no training on how to pull a pint but was willing to take on board a few tips from us whilst trying to keep straight faces!

Well timed late lunchtime visit as many of the suits were leaving after my arrival so found a free table by the fire exit.

Mid afternoon to late evening. Quiet when we arrived but soon livened up. Lots of familiar faces in here tonight from past and present.

Mid afternoon and far quieter than I would expect. However our group soon got bigger plus others arriving after office finish time it was standing room only when we left.

I was pushed in here by a sudden very heavy downpour in the early evening. Pleased I came in – not been here since the first week the pub opened (c.2000?).
BeerABVScoreNotes
Fuller's (part of Asahi Europe) - London Pride4.10GoodA fresh and tasty pint of Pride.
Fuller's (part of Asahi Europe) - Gale's Beachcomber3.70AcceptableGolden. Bland in the extreme – only just about worth 3 stars.
