My first visit here and I nearly walked out as I sat at the bar for some considerable time without any sign of any staff in attendance anywhere. I sat and read the various Camra and Fullers in house award certificates until somebody eventually appeared. I would have appreciated a comment like "sorry to keep you waiting" but no such luck. Thankfully the beer was superb and worth the wait.

16:15 Nice little back street pub. Friendly atmosphere. Discussed the number of pubs in St Albans with another customer who claimed that St Albans is the most heavily pubbed city centre in Britain. The range of cask beers is advertised on a blackboard with an associated pump clip. Interestingly the keg Black Cab Stout was on the same board which initially caught out one of our party. The landlord gave us a sample in the face of our negative comments about fizz but I found it too gassy for my tastes.

Late Saturday afternoon and this is an ok Fullers pub in an area rich for pubs. I sat on the patio with my half of London Pride.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Fuller's (part of Asahi Europe) - London Pride4.10GoodSlightly nutty. Strong hop finish that is more astringent than leafy, so not as pleasant. Kept well though and you can't argue that it's not bitter, cos it is. Good example.
