29 Nov 2018 (Magnus Greel)
Mid afternoon fairly busy with loud studenty types, with more groups appearing during our short visit. Rude and poor service from the barman, who seemed to take exception over my choice to pay cash rather than card hence prolonged what should have been a quick seamless transaction.
Fuller's (part of Asahi Europe) - London Pride4.10PoorA blindfolded taste test one would recognise instantly this beer, however the sourish rhubarby flavour would have thrown me. Just about drinkable.
Marston's - Wychwood Hobgoblin Ruby Beer (was Hobgoblin)4.50Not Tried
Sharp's - Doom Bar4.00Not TriedPerhaps I should've resisted the temptation?

I was pleased to see the Hoare & Co sign on the corner of the building. This was an afternoon visit and the pub was fairly quiet.
Black Sheep - Best Bitter3.80GoodI have been very pleased with the quality of Black Sheep recently. This was no exception.
Wadworth - 6X4.10Not Tried
