Evening - quite busy for a Monday and with a PM telling people to avoid pubs. Excellent eclectic decor - including a working photo booth - worth a tour round all 3 areas if you are visiting - and do look up - there is a mini Tutankamun-like golden sculpture set into the ceiling in one bar. Sadly no Harvey’s Sussex - what’s the word for “nearly ubiquitous”?

Several people were waiting for a beer whilst the barmaid coped with a complicated coffee machine but she acknowledged customers and served with a smile once the coffee order was accomplished. A really nice pub.

Bath Ales - Gem Bitter4.10ExcellentI think this must be the best Gem that I can remember, served in a jug with a full measure of good ale. Most enjoyable.

Late afternoon very quiet one other customer. Once again I've been offered a straight glass or the dimply one to drink my beer from.

The Good Beer Guide says this has 2 Greene King beers and "guests" which made me think this was a free house. It isn't, it's a Greene King pub. I don't call random beers from the Greene King stable "guests". Anyway, it was a nice enough pub inside. Slightly gothic in feel I thought.

Ridleys - Witchfinder4.30UndrinkableBoth Ian and I had this. As I sipped it I instantly thought Vinegar! ...but Ian reckoned it was okay. Now Ian can spot diacetyl from 20 paces but vinegar seems to pass him by. This beer was awful.

Could be a very good pub. The people behind the bar didn't seem that interested in customer service or helping us find a street nearby, plus GK is not favourite brewer.

Ridleys - Witchfinder4.30UndrinkableVinegary porter, not in great nick. No condition. Some liquorice. We had to leave our half pints.
