Escaped from the Dane John music festival where the only passable beer was Curious Brew on keg at £5 a pint. Nice relaxing feel to the Maidens in the afternoon sunshine. Just the one real ale on again.

Weltons - English Pride3.80GoodPlain but nice and well kept.

Lunchtime - just a handful in. The pub changed hands just before Christmas and has had a makeover. Feels good but not much in the way of real ales. Landlord says he keeps just one on during the week but two at weekends.

Early evening - not pleasant - all day drinkers being very loud. This is definitely not a real ale pub - one ale on a Wantsum IPA - one sniff worried me - one taste and I knew it was undrinabke. Barman replaced it with a bottle after moaning that he had served 7 pints of it today. Turned the pump clip round - and then put it back as I left! I will not be going back.

Just after noon - thirsty after a tip run so any pint was going to be good - just one ale on - but this one was superb - enjoyed it in the sunshine.

Pub 5. John and I sat out side and talked about school discos and the ensuing punch-ups of the past.

Weltons - Old Cocky4.30GoodDry, crisp and bright - bit lacking of bite for a 4.3 ale.

An entirely on the spur of the moment visit. I'd thought this pub had closed years ago so I was surprised to see it open. Lots of brown leather sofas. The Doom Bar was being changed otherwise that would have been on too.0
