A most enjoyable visit with a good welcome from the guv. We sat at the table by the window and enjoyed a couple of pints each. This pub now sports a real time bus display for the stops outside which we found to be of a real benefit.

Late afternoon and busy, we perched at the table by the bar and chatted to a chap familiar with SE London's MicroPub scene, many I've yet to do.

Afternoon visit, busy inside and outside, both at the front and the rear garden area. We split in to two groups and managed to find seating. I left earlier than I originally planned when I discovered that there were more trains cancelled from nearby Winchmore Hill than there were actually running so it was a bus to Wood Green for the Piccadilly Line.
Iron Pier - Bitter4.00Excellent
Wantsum - Black Prince3.90GoodThis ran out after our beers were poured, good to the end of cask.
Redemption - Big Chief5.50Not Tried
Elgood's - Plum Porter4.50Not TriedThis replaced the mild when that ran out, some of friends tried it and said that it was superb.

Evening visit until 10pm close. A long tube/bus trek prompted by ChrisE's earlier glowing emails today to say this place was superb. Worth the effort indeed, along the Micropub theme soon into conversation with a local and the Guv. Great little place and the ales are moving fast. Quantity available and quality of real ales spot on. Make sure you give this place enough time for a purposeful visit.
St Peter's - Mild3.70ExcellentSuperb head, condition and nuttiness
Howling Hops (Brewed at Hackney Wick) - Ruby Red Dinner Ale5.20Excellent
Reunion - Opening Gambit3.80Not TriedNew on today and ran out

Afternoon visit and quite busy with room to find some seats, unfortunately the former bus seats were taken so we sat at a table by the window and watched the world go by. A good friendly guv made us most welcome, a proper micropub and well worth a visit. Pub games include Shove Halfpenny and Carrom.
