Quiet in here at around 8pm, in contrast to two busy pubs visited nearby.

Evening until close.

Westerham - 17304.00ExcellentBizarrely priced at £4.44 pp but more comfortably so at £4 after 10% CAMRA discount

Busy in the early evening. Mostly lawyers by the look of ‘em. Money no object in these parts and it is a shock to find that my pint costs £4:40, even with the CAMRA discount. two other beers were available, but I forget which.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Florence - Topper (branded as A Head In A Hat Brewing)4.80GoodAn ‘Indian Export Porter’, based on an 1808 recipe. Dark brown and a bit challenging.
Greene King - Hardys & Hansons Rocking Rudolph4.20Not TriedA beer that claims to be from a brewery that no longer exists and which advertises itself with flashing lights on the pump-clip. Regrettably, there seem to be lots of takers for this sort of stuff.

Early evening and the pub is quiet – it is now badged as a ‘Taylor Walker’ house. Only the 10% CAMRA discount bought the price of my pint below £4. For that money I expect tip-top quality, and I didn’t get it.
BeerABVScoreNotes
London Fields - Hackney Hopster4.20AcceptableHoppy golden pint served with a huge frothy head. Bland-tasting, had none of the usual character shown by this beer. Only just ‘acceptable’.

Fairly busy but comfortable on a Mid Thursday evening.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Camerons - Harvest Ale4.50AcceptableSweetish and malty with little hop character and no really strong flavours. Faint hints of fruit in the finish. My score 14/20.

BeerABVScoreNotes
Springhead - Sweetlips4.60ExcellentPale premium bitter with strong citrus hop character. Refreshing dry, hoppy finish. My score 16/20.

Fairly quiet mid evening on a Monday.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Batemans - Miss Luscious4.30AcceptableCopper coloured bitter with mainly sweet, malty flavours. My score 14/20.

Mid weekday afternoon and it was pretty quiet. The landlord was excellent, finding out what the Old Mill Bitter was and chatting to me about his pub and beers.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Old Mill - Traditional Bitter3.90AcceptableCopper colour with thin beige head. Yeasty, traditional bitter. Proper bitter with yeasty solid character
Smiles - Drifter4.50AcceptableCopper colour with thin beige head. Some good hop, nice enough, some apple. Got this free, really nice landlord. The fruit is interesting, not much of a Xmas beer. Fine, OK bitter.
