Lunchtime visit, I decided to try the Pie Mash & Liquour with my Harvey's. Craft keg enthusiasts may wish to note that the following beers were on offer in addition to the cask ales; Beavertown Gamma Ray, Kona Big Wave(from Hawaii), Curious Brew IPA (from just up the road) and something called Troubador at 5.9%.

Harvey's - Sussex Best Bitter4.00GoodGood to very good, I had to wait for the pumps to be flushed through with water as I arrived just before opening time and the pub had been closed for a couple of days. It was well worth the wait, this beer sold very well while I was in the pub.
