Early evening and very busy, diners were having to wait for tables. I wondered why so many pubs in this town no longer bother to open on Tuesdays. Service was very good and friendly. I shared a table with a group of people from Dover who were having drinks before going to the Mexican Restaurant opposite the pub.
Hop Fuzz - American4.20ExcellentIn top condition.
