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.
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!
Shepherd Neame - Bishops Finger5.00Good

Wantsum - Hengist5.00GoodWent down well but not as good as it can be.
Wantsum - UXB?4.60GoodColdish.
