A stop for some goulash soup and beer. Anybody who likes goulash soup should come here and enjoy a pub with good beers and atmosphere as well. the front area was full so we sat in the small area at the back. I did not make a note of all the beers on offer.

Live football on TV and the pub is crowded with nobody seemingly very keen on budging up to accommodate newcomers. Friendly welcome from behind the bar though.

Afternoon visit. I ordered a mild before I noticed that all bitters were on offer on Wednesday afternoons, and would have been cheaper than my mild.
