Early afternoon busy with most tables taken so we perched at the 2 seater in the window 'wedge' and enjoyed our beers there.

Brought a group of friends who'd not been here before arriving shortly after lunchtime opening, we were the first customers thus bagged the large table on the left side. Needless to say first impressions were most favourable!!

Stop 2. Busy here. Rather disappointing choice of ales - but the decor is as fascinating as ever - we sat at the old pin table.

2 beers on and only men in the bar apart from the barmaid. All change since lockdown. Prices up 40%. But if you buy a local token 50p off a pint. So, £4.30 a pint or £4 tonight. For a guy from ramsgit.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Parkway (formerly Glastonbury Ales) - Festiveale4.60AcceptableNot enjoyable. £4 a pint. Up from £3 pre covid.

Got here at last - long term on my “wish list” and have had a couple of failed attempts previously. Nearly had a third one - cycled on a Saturday for an early opening day only to find they had a minor flood and weren’t open for another half hour Eventually had a very good pint and a pleasant chat with the guv.

I love this place. A great atmosphere in here this evening, the guv was off duty and sat at the same table as me. We had a good chat about micropubs in Hartlepool and Axminster.
