Mid afternoon fairly quiet but not so in noise levels as we were allocated a table in the rear bar with a bunch of SAGA louts enjoying a beer or 2 but I'll let em off for that!

Table booked (or should I say beer barrel as we were located in the alley) which was essential today as many groups came and went during our stay. Superb service and friendly welcome we were fine to stay much longer than our booked 3pm departure (they knew our organiser was coming, a certain Mr Chris E)!

Three of us met here with outside space reserved for two hours although we eventually stayed a little longer than that. The two outside service areas soon became very busy but service was quick, efficient and friendly. The kitchen is currently closed so wet sales and packets of crisps only at the moment. Neck Oil seemed a popular choice today but we stuck to the cask ales.

Fuller's (part of Asahi Europe) - London Pride4.10ExcellentSo good that we never got around to trying the Hophead.

First stop on a pubcrawl of classic pubs of the area. The Lounge is initially fairly quiet and it's a good opportunity to absorb the timeless ambiance of this pub (the interior is largely 1920s, rather than the sometimes-claimed 1620s).

Late afternoon and my third pub of the day, I had a pint and a cheese and onion toastie. I delighted in using my 15% discount card for my pint.

This is the third, or maybe fourth, time I have come here for an East London & City CAMRA Pub of the Year award presentation. Congratulations to Scotty and Kath. I couldn’t stay long actually and left after the speeches but before the buffet. It is typical of Scotty’s generosity that he gave me a boxed 2013 Fullers Vintage Ale bottle to take home with me.
