Early evening visit busy as expected for this time of day, three to four deep at the bar however efficient staff used to these conditions coped admirably.

5pm and busy but thankfully a lot of people were outside and there was plenty of room to sit down and admire the building. I used both bars and got immediate service every time.

Rush hour busy, but service speedy. The first few Wetherspoon Beer Festival beers have appeared.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Banks's - Grapes & Gratification Old World New England IPA5.00ExcellentA very nice, pale, hoppy beer that lacks any hint of Banksís house taste.

The renovations here seem to have become a permanent feature, the left side of the main room still shrouded.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Portobello - Central Line Red4.40AcceptableGood preparation before facing ordeal by Central Line, but actually, itís a pretty middle-of-the-road sort of beer.

I just popped in really to see which festival beers were on, but a friend was at the bar and I stayed for a couple of halves. Pub pleasingly quiet at around 9pm on a Monday. I did not note all the beers.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Orkney (Sinclair) - Nimbus Blonde (Atlas range)5.00GoodPale gold and rather floral.
JW Lees (see also Lees) - Weaver's Shuttle4.10GoodGolden/amber. Not quite the standard Bitter I was expecting. Crisp.

Passing through again on my way home and still maintaining an interest in the Wetherspoon festival list.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Adnams - Young Henrys Newtowner4.80GoodGolden. A balanced and unspectacular (but pretty decent none-the-less) pint.
Greene King - Morland Old Nutty Hen4.50AcceptableBrown. It is indeed nutty Ė very sweet too.

Busy in the early evening rush hour peak. I popped in to have a look at the Wetherspoon Festival list. The pub is still in the midst of the renovation that I noted here in March.
BeerABVScoreNotes

Rooster's - Pistol River4.00GoodAn amber-coloured mixed grain beer with a rye bite.
Caledonian - Cervecería Fort Barcelona Oatmeal Porter5.50GoodA good black Porter. Sweetish and smooth, with some hop character.

A rapid pint before boarding a train to Harwich (well, Manningtree to start with). No time to make a full list of cask beer availability.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Nottingham - Rose's Oatmeal Stout4.80ExcellentThis was a really nice pint that I would like to have savoured rather than bolted down.
