Just after 2 - was cycling past but couldn’t resist the urge for a swift half. Half a dozen in. Happy to get back to reasonable prices - £3.60/£3.80.

After a mammoth “mystery tour” bus ride from Canterbury we were pleased to eventually get here - and the guvnor seemed pleased to welcome the 9 of us. Ex-landlord from the Handsome Sam also here.

Cycling past just after 2pm nominal closing time - but it was open for a swift one. Unusually for a micro this now has a small garden area. Friendly place.

Very busy but since it was hot a lot of folks were in the back garden so Gareth and I managed to get a seat by the window. Neither Gavin or Garry present today but did have a chat with Glyn. A good night.
