Early evening visit. Quiz just starting, pretty clear from the section on cocktails that we would not have won had we stayed.

Named after locally made bricks - one of our party was taken back to his youth when he used to make them - a very emotional scene between an old man and a worn brick. Afternoon - friendly.

Early evening visit, part of a Micropub crawl. We liked the banter so consequently stayed longer than intended, so other later planned venues were missed out. Little glasses of gratis peanuts and thin bread-like sticks were emptied as our appetites were aroused.

My first visit to this new micropub. Still work in progress, I had a good chat with the landlady who I knew from when she ran the South Eastern Tavern in Ashford about eighteen years ago.
