Came to congratulate Chris on his first entry bro the gbg. He was behind the bar and said thanks it's about time. Well that's what I thought e said but with a mask on he could have said anything. Anyway, he seemed grateful before he went off to do another 20 jobs at once. Too many national beers on, but found old peculiar hiding upstairs.

Late morning visit whilst waiting for the 12:00 openers to open. Already busy on both levels, strict COVID precautions being taken here with staff insisting that people complete track/trace forms. The upper level was table service only using the Wetherspoon App. We had vouchers to spend so we stayed on the ground floor and ordered at the bar.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Shepherd Neame - Bishops Finger5.00GoodA very good start to the day.

Lunchtime a short wait in the queue to get in, track and trace details given then free to find somewhere to sit. I've only listed what I drank upon my first visit to Wetherspoons flagship pub. Lucky me!

Did a tour of a few pubs that were open but didnt find any selling beers that I wanted. At least in spoons you get more of a choice. First lockdown pints.
