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.

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.

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.

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.

In here on the way home from a business trip to Hertfordshire and intending to have a go at the current Wetherspoon festival list. Sticking with the halves.

Exmoor - Urban Fox4.20GoodAmber-coloured, malty, but also well-hopped. Bitter finish.

It appeared to be the calm after the storm in here, with much clearing-up going on at 7:45, large football crowds having departed to tonightís match at the Olympic Stadium. The pub is in the midst of an internal refurbishment.
