Late evening visit. Rarely on my radar but thought I'd make a swansong visit. Now in a row of boarded up properties. Walked in but had closed at 10pm so assume has given up the ghost as the demolition ball beckons.

Evening session on the hottest day of the year (so far)-offers 50p off a pint and £2 off pies to nurses, students and Camra members

Apparently Monday night is a quiet night. Not here 18 cask beers available and standing room only.

Twickenham (also uses sub-brand Old Hands) - Mosaic Pale3.20ExceptionalIve enjoyed recently a few golden beers hopped with Mosaic and this one might be the best of the lot. Dry-hopping gives masses of fruity hop flavours and there is an extra dimension too from the addition of ginger.
Dorset Brewing Company - Tank Top4.80ExcellentAmber in colour. Intense US hop flavours on a solid malt base. Really good I thought.

12:00 Lunch stop. Almost every customer had luggage, the pub obviously makes a good waiting room. Most tables had reserved signs from 18:00 so probably best avoided on Friday evenings if you want a seat.

Late afternoon to mid evening work re-union and birthday group. Although always an impressive range of real ales here, on this visit almost every beer I had was lacklustre, hazy and did not possess the whizzbang moreishness I expect. When a large group has settled in it is difficult to get them to move on.
