Lunchtime- has been on my wish list a while and didnít disappoint - worth the 50 mile cycle to get here. A few drinkers in, log fire on the go in the middle of the bar area! Bit embarrassed that I asked if the Filo brewery was their own - First In Last Out - FILO of course. Of 5 new pubs for me today this was my favourite.

We came in here for lunch and a pint, both were good. Busy at this time of day but well worth a visit. I did not list all the beers that were available.

An all-too-brief, lunchtime visit. I have a long history with this pub, dating back to my teenage years when I had summer holiday jobs down on Hastings Stade.

Very quiet on a Thursday afternoon, calm before the storm as a street party was taking place later.

About forty of us turned up and I was at the wrong end of the queue for beer, still it was worth waiting for.

Early afternoon and a good crowd of locals in place. Good to see a wider range of FILO beers on pump. So much more professional now than on my last visit here years ago when the beers were rather homebrewish.
