Very busy with a largely younger crowd. If I were a student I'd probably quite like this place. Not cask from what I could see.
Electric Bear - Rwy'n Hoffi Coffi4.60GoodIt wasn't cask and it was served super cold. Once it had warmed up it wasn't too bad. Coffee and elder berry

Stop 9 - but not even Doom Bar on tap. I settled for a whisky while I toured this eclectic venue. One off my “repeat visit” list.

Umm came here because Ian had heard it was good and like a pseudo Brewdog pub. We sat and watched a bit of England-Belgium.
Sharp's - Doom Bar4.00Good

Just the one cask beer on and two draught ciders plus an array of upmarket keg beers. I had a quick half and moved on.

Early evening. About a dozen people distributed around - can take 10 times that before getting crowded. All TVs showing football - but volume on one only - and not intrusive. Two beers "coming soon" - Spitfire and Crawler, Golden Ale.
Cottage - Battle of Britain4.50GoodBit metallic on first quaff - but good malty flavour that lingered well.
Greene King - IPA (was 3.6%)3.40Not Tried
Marston's - Wychwood Hobgoblin IPA (was Ruby Beer, was Hobgoblin)4.50Not Tried
