My first visit here. I had a good chat with the chap behind the bar about pubs in Islington and Whitechapel, especially the former Old Parr's Head in Upper Street, Islington.
Old Dairy - Blue Top4.80GoodHazy, probably needed to be cellared for a bit longer.

1700ish and a few others about. First visit here I found the smell of previously fried food a bit overpowering, plus I found the owner was trying too hard to promote the place to us, including the lure of a free barbecque on Saturday evenings.
Old Dairy - Blue Top4.80AcceptableHazy and a tad sour, fresh barrel this morning was passed as explanation.

Just after evening opening at 1630. Half a dozen customers within 10 minutes. Nice relaxed place.
Old Dairy - Spring Top4.00AcceptableGood fruity body but a little cloudy. A half was pulled off before my pint, suspect a bit more would have made a difference. The Blue Top was going down well with others.
