Back for lunch today after visiting the castle and taking a 4 mile walk. Sat in the garden - that is extremely long and peaceful. Good fish and chips. The local beer was sublime. Other 2 beers same as yesterday.

Hattie Brown's - Moonlite3.80ExceptionalIt may have been the walk beforehand and the clean palate at noon but this was superb. Real depth of flavour and body for a 3.8 ale.

Early evening - 3 bar flies in. Nice feel - unimproved over the last 30 plus years I would guess - although the prices have kept up to date - £4.50 a pint.

No one in except the landlady and her staff. All the beers were on gravity behind the bar. Good pub.
