Sunday afternoon and almost full. Gin is very popular here. I had a good chat with the landlord about the licensed trade.

A pleasant little place. Lunchtime and the topic of conversation was gin, the tipple of choice for three out of the four other customers present.

Bank Holiday Monday afternoon, I was expecting the pub to open at 5pm as is usual on a Monday but instead it had opened at 12:00 and was closing at 5pm so it is a good job that I was early. The seating area was full so I sat at the bar and had a chat to the landlord who told me that he had had a very busy weekend.

I arrived before opening time but was let in as the landlord was on the premises. We chatted and played a few records on an old portable record player.

Evening visit soon after opening time. The landlord informed that he has two casks from the Four Candles Brewery in the cellar and that he hopes to have their beers on a regular basis.

Opening night and very much still work in progress, I had met the landlord Gary once before when he was serving at the Bake and Ale House at Westgate. This pub is a true micropub.
