Early-evening, when I spotted this pub out of the bus window on my way home from Bexleyheath. It seemed a fine place, and my old friend John W was ensconced at one of the high tables. Other beers as listed by PP.

Anspach & Hobday - The Enigma Code IPA5.00ExcellentA golden IPA. Smooth and full-bodied. A really good hop blend.
