12:45 A planned trip out to an open gardens event with a beer tent ruined by an incorrect weather forecast. Surprise, surprise. Came here for lunch as a result. Good village pub atmosphere, excellent crab salad and a look round the garden with the Landlady.
Adnams - Broadside4.70GoodHobson's choice. Not as sweet as it can be.
Woodforde's - Bure Gold4.30GoodIn my opinion the best session beer from Woodfordes. Sadly the last one out of the pin.
Batemans - Flower Power3.70AcceptableA Batemans heritage brew first brewed in 2004. The definition of heritage gets shorter every year. Elderflower flavoured supposedly. Bland and boring.
Woodforde's - Wherry3.80Not Tried
