Early evening and a boisterous after-work trade. Much talk of probation officers on the next table to mine, punctuated by trips outside for ‘snout’.

Evening. Expected to find a plethora of flat-capped ex dockers but was mainly a young crowd perhaps reflecting some degree of local gentrification and local housing developments.
