I met up with a group of friends and found it unexpectedly busy for a late Wednesday afternoon with a few other groups dotted about. Comfortable and relaxed atmosphere could have stayed longer if there was more choice of cask ales available.
Thornbridge / Thornbridge Hall - Twin Peaks5.00GoodFruity hoppy and flavoursome prompted another pint before moving on.

Swift half while waiting for the bus, mid afternoon, 1 other customer. Prices have changed considerably since Chris E’s visit. One cask at £4 a pint. 17 kegs between 4.5 and 5.5 a pint. Pleasant enough space. I tried the Tonbridge “Easy Street” at 3.9% that was good. Brit Hop “Thirst for Knowledge” (4.3%) was the only cask on.

Second venue for our group - mid evening and quiet, we took over the lengthways table array.
Iron Pier - Wealdway IPA4.50ExcellentBrewed using Columbus and Chinook hops, resulting in a piney, citrus and floral aroma.

A first visit for me. A good selection of craft. keg, key keg or whatever and one cask ale. All the beers seemed to be competitively priced, the cask ale was good value at £3 per pint.
Northdown - Papworth Victory Best Bitter4.20Good

Late afternoon, busy with a group of jolly gents gathered at the far end of the long bar which happened to be where a single handpump was hiding the pub's only cask ale in a sea of keg offerings. Despite this we enjoyed the atmosphere here and the bespoke pizza's looked most enticing.
Saltaire - South Island Pale3.50ExcellentSuperb condition very flavoursome the NZ hops striking a good balance with the gravity of this beer. £3 a pint for the thrifty minded too.
