2 pint evening visit until 11pm close. Clever use of reused materials everywhere to feast the eyes on. Good to see the CAMRA discount so prominently advertised on the bar back.

I was dropped conveniently outside this bar after a day out in Sussex. Itís a nice little place, and had a steady throughput of customers tonight, many like myself heading to or from the railway station.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Cronx - Nektar4.50GoodA well-balanced Pale Ale.
Hackney - Pumpkin Pale4.50GoodOn keg dispense and over-chilled. Pumpkin flavours not overpowering and also quite subtly spiced.
Cronx - Scarf Ritual5.50AcceptableA dark brown, spiced, winter beer. Over-spiced to my taste.
