Lunchtime cycle meet. We sat in the sunny garden. Beer now 4.80 a pint so we moved onto the Brewery after a couple.

Yet another cycle meet here. Hot and sunny. The staff are very friendly and welcoming here - shame the beer is pushing £5 a pint.

Lunchtime Potterers cycle meet. We filled the front bar, very convivial and a welcome open fire after a chilly sea wall ride from Reculver.
