Evening until close. Very enthusiastic owners and a cosy friendly haunt. The steak pie and baked potato on the menu probably invalidates it being tagged a Micropub as it exceeds the Association's requirement to only "dabble in traditional pub snacks".

Afternoon visit before heading off to the Black Lion for early evening. We wondered why no Leighton Buzzard Brewery beers were on sale but were assured that these still make regular appearances.
