A busy town centre Spoons which was handy for the buses that we were using to get around the area. Both bars were open. I have only noted a few of the beers that were available.

Brief visit before taking a train to London. Every table taken and little standing space around the bar there may have been other beers available that I could not see.

Early-afternoon and busy. A succession of live football games are on the many TV screens and the West Ham game in particular is rousing the natives. Probably not a complete cask beer list.

16:00 A bit of a wait for the next train so popped in here for a half rather than stand on a windy platform. Only noted beers on front bar.
