Early evening much more welcoming and civilised atmosphere compared to the Four Candles, busy around the bar area we sat at one of the many tables free at the entrance level. Start of Folk Week hence beers in plastic cups, the only pub noted to do so today.
Oakham - Endless Summer3.40ExcellentDry citrus fruits combined with a hoppy peppery kick made for a flavoursome complex experience.
